My 2nd note on this tea. I think I like it more and more… its apple flavour always reminds me the of the happy moments in my childhood and cheers me up when I feel depressed by work. It’s my happy tea!

Karel Capek is a Japanese tea shop famous for flavoured tea in cute tins. There are real apple pieces in the tea but it’s heavily scented with artificial apple flavouring! When I say artificial I am serious – when I opened the bag of tea, I was greeted by a smell that reminded me of my fruit-flavour toothpaste in childhood! :0 Fortunately, the taste is more natural than its smell… the mellow sweetness makes it a pretty nice dessert tea after all.
