Thank you Darby for this tea !
This is my first David’s tea and I was a little curious to know how apples and cinnamon would work on a green tea base.
It works perfectly well, I can get every flavor : the crisp of the pie, the cinnamon, the apples. It it really yummy.
As a French, I have to confess the apple pie is not a childhood reference for me. For apple cake reference,we are more on tarte tatin or simple tarte aux pommes here – and there is no cinnamon in Tarte Tatin and sometimes but rarely in a Tarte aux pommes.
So none nostalgia about the Mom’s cake (however my Mom was and is still a awful pastry cooker ! She makes nice salted meals but not desserts at all)
I appreciate the pastry taste of this tea, it is not only an heavy apple & cinnamon flavors.
The thing I liked less with this blend is the tea itself, I cannot really get the tea base.
To me it tastes more like a tisane than a tea. The good point is there is no astringency, no bitterness at all but I would have loved to get the tea base more present.
Despite this point, I really liked it but it seems this blend is discontinued ?
