I, weirdly enough (and out of all places), tried this at an AMC movie theatre. It was the only thing that was reasonably priced, $2 for a 14-16 oz cup.
After ordering and selecting my tea, this one I was in the mood for, I headed to my seats.
This tea was great, full of flavour, from start to finish.
Taste: Strong apple, very sweet apple, and hints of cinnamon. It was combined very well together, with good quality seeming ingredients, Very RICH.
Smell: Like Apple Cinnamon, it was just really rich.
Overall I would recommend this tea over many of the other apple cinnamon’s I have had.
I say go for it!
Had my last bag of this this week. It isn’t a bad tea, especially considering it is bagged. In fact, until I discovered the peach tea from Charleston Plantation, this was my favourite peach. Now though, it just seems lacking in comparison.
I will fully admit. I only got a cup of tea from McD’s today because their new coffee cake muffins are divine, and tea and muffin is only $0.20 more than just a muffin.
I got addicted to this tea last year in my residence!
It’s just so good and it’s such a good way to enjoy a warm cup of tea without feeling like I’m going over my daily caffeine limit.
It tastes very good I think, and the fact that the lemony taste is strong is a big plus for me. And there is a mild sweetness that lingers with the freshness of the lemons that just makes this tea so much better. I had the tea with a sweetner for the first time today – and it gets even better!!!
The only bad thing is, I can’t find it ANYWHERE (in boxes) in Toronto… The only option I have is to order 6 boxes of it – and while I do love this tea… I don’t think I need 120 bags of the stuff. not yet anyway ;)
Mid-morning tea break. Still love this tea. Luckily, hard to mess up (I’m looking at you, McD’s employees). Can’t beat a large tea and a muffin for a buck fifty.
I tried to get tea from DavidsTea, but they were out of cups, so I had to look elsewhere. So I ran to the McDonalds and ordered the biggest cup of orange pekoe they had…I desperately needed it today at work. It was tasty, and hit the spot when I needed it. Still, by the end of the day, I was ready for some real tea.
I’m having this at work as I stopped at the little food shop on my way in for a snack and wanted some tea made for me, but was feeling a strong aversion to ordering bagged tea. So I went with a bagged herbal, thinking that was a nice idea. This smelled great as I carried it in, and isn’t bad, but the cinnamon tastes a little soapy or like fragrance oil. I can’t get that thought out of my head on each sip!
Recently got into the habit of drinking tea and I’ve been going back and forth between this and the English Breakfast. I definitely enjoy this one over the English Breakfast – it’s more flavorful.
I like lots of flavor so i keep the bag in my cup. I usually drink it for breakfast every morning, and have the earl gray with lunch. I find the Earl Gray to be more flavorful.
I ended up having to work late and then meeting the wife at her job so we could bus home together. We’re both exhausted, so we stopped off at McDonald’s for dinner. I’ve been craving tea all day, so I got a large orange pekoe. De likes their Earl Grey a lot, and the orange pekoe wasn’t bad at all for a bagged tea! It definitely hit all of my tea-soothing buttons. I just wanted to curl up in a nice cup of tea, so I did! It was very, very nice. Definitely an option when I just need a big cup of tea on the go.
i’ve always loved Chai – i find the aroma inviting and warm- I smell sweet cloves peppercorns and ginger of course- i’ve added milk and honey- only because i’ve always had it this way- since i was young. This tea is great on cold days- truly warms you up from head to toe
I forgot to log this one. I drank it while awaiting my plane in the “Runway Cafe”. I even jotted down a couple notes and thoughts (not a normal habit—I don’t want to look like some weird food critic scrutinizing their service).
My thoughts, quoted directly from my notes: “Brews dark (fanning); taste is bold, not bitter. Bergamot scent borders on Pledge-y, but that doesn’t translate into the taste. Just a touch of dark citrus. Well-rounded earl grey. I like it. 72-77%?”
No idea what their water temperature was at, but I default-steep most plain blacks at five minutes.
I drink this frequently, since it’s what McDonald’s uses. I prefer it over the Second Cup Earl, which is my other source of hot tea while I’m at work. It’s pretty good. Not the best I’ve ever had, far from the worst. I would not be ashamed to have it in my personal collection.
I forgot I had this one when I first got to work today! I even wrote down tasting notes and stuck it in my pocket! These are teas that we get at work.
It’s okay, it just tastes like black really. I might have oversteeped this one, it was a little tannin-y. But no aftertaste, just a little astringent. It’s golden brown tea. I detect sweet notes, maybe fruity, but very minimal. And the initial smell is almost a little grassy, like a field. I think I can get better black tea taste from my trusted PG Tips.
Drinking this one right now. It’s a little sharper than I like my lemon teas, and I really love lemon teas. Not so much here for me, this time.
Pleasant. Went well with my bacon and eggs.
Drank this when I was on the road earlier today. The water at the gas station was too hot but the tea didn’t turn overly bitter and the added citrus was nice and refreshing.
This suddenly appeared in the tea stash at work today. Not awful, but nothing to write home about.
Blech. Smells strongly herbal and woodsy, and all I ever taste is sharp lemon. It came with a gift basket, and I just want to finish off the remaining bags. I don’t have it in me to toss tea out, even if it’s awful.
