I received a box of this as a gift and fell in love with it. I don’t use sweetener anymore, but this tea doesn’t need it. When I taste it, I immediately think of apple cider, but it doesn’t have apples in it; it’s orange. I think I taste apple cider because the same kinds of spices are used in it.
Every person I’ve let try this has loved it. I ordered several more boxes for myself when I managed to find it online.

Very weak aroma.
And the taste? Very generic poor black tea. No bitterness, no character, no strong notes. Not so bad in the morning, but it has nothing to focus.

Smells just like a baked apple with cinnamon and a touch of vanilla. Fantastic!
In taste it’s too bland, the apple and spicy notes are too subtle, too much in the background.
Adding a bit of sugar helps focus the taste a little, but I remain disappointed.

Really strong and sweet mango aroma.
Still strong in taste, but not as dominant. Too bad the basic blakc tea is very bland and mediocre.

The proper black tea is very bland, and the orange peel flavors are too subtle. I suppose that this might taste better with a little sugar.

Cinnamon is the most evident, there’s also nice spiciness from pepper and ginger, as well as subtle anise and clove notes.
The problem is, there’s not enough tea in it, so it tastes much better when brewed along with an additional bag of black tea
And even better when made more “chai” style – with a solid splash of milk and some sugar.

Refreshing scent of lemongrass combined with lemon peels.
Refreshing taste with subtle bitterness, very slightly sour.
Casual but good.

drank Apple Pie by Pickwick
60 tasting notes

Interesting. I’m getting a bit of coconut scent off of this tea. Very pleasant (for me, anyway), but unexpected.

Letting it steep while I work out…

A heavy taste of coconut in the first sip, before I get hit with the apple pie. This really is reminiscent of apple pie, complete with spices (good flavor for tea, a little weak for real apple pie – might have gone the full flavor if I’d added sugar, but I don’t think that’s necessary). It’s sweet and makes me happy.

As I keep drinking this, I’m getting more of the coconut and black tea flavor, and a lot less apple pie. It comes out in hints, but it’s a lot weaker than it was in the first sips. I still like it, but it’ not what I was expecting, not what I was promised in the title and first sips. I’d rate it higher if I was looking for a coconut black tea rather than apple pie.

I’d drink it again, if Ihad it, but I don’t think I’ll be searching it out.

Eww eww EWW! The problem with trying new teas from different countries is that you can’t know if it’s a flavor you dislike. I do NOT like licorice. Oops.

licorice is yucky

Well, FYI “zoethout” is German for licorice. xP

I used to enjoy this tea every Sunday when I lived in Amsterdam – it brightened even the gloomiest of days. The orange flavors are strong and they don’t taste fake or artificial. Yummy.

A typical Pickwick tea. Not the best, but perfectly fine. The little citron taste next to the bergamot made it go very well.

This is the last of the teas that I picked up on vacay to Seattle. I am a sucker for anything Fruits of the Forest, Fruits de Alsace, etc. lol.
The dry teabag smells like strawberry the most and also has some other berry scents to it.
I usually cut the tea contents out of teabags and use my own infuser but maybe I shouldn’t have done that with this one bc it is very bitter. I taste the fruits but the tea base is pretty yuccky tasting. Oh well, the package sure is cute so that’s one good thing lol.
I will try this again another day, maybe I will brew it way less time and that will help it.

Picked two bags of this up from a cruddy little London hotel I stayed at a few months ago. I prepared it the same way as I do any new bagged black: boiling water, 3-4 minutes, 1 tsp sugar, splash of soymilk.

It had quite a malty aroma while steeping. I was a little dismayed when the liquor turned a muddy brown after adding the milk, rather than the usual warm coppery color, but that’s just cosmetic.

The taste isn’t much better – it’s definitely black tea, but a weird mishmash of flavors I’m unaccustomed to (is that lemon I’m picking up?), and way too much sugar for the strength of the blend. It was okay when I was sipping it along with my morning toast, but I’m not a fan of it by itself. I’ll try the other bag lightly steeped & plain to start with. Apparently this brand is based in the Netherlands, so maybe they take it differently there?

Big brand in Denmark as well. And no, it probably just is that poor. I find it sort of on the same level as Lipton.

Tried this yesterday for the first time, and I can already say I’ll be buying at least 5-6 more packs to have for when Christmas is not around!
The spices just make the orange feeling more christmas-y that you would ever expect!

extremeley sweet.

I am not into honeybush at all, but it’s dark outside, I am tired and haven’t had a proper sleep in days, so when I saw this in a discount store, I just tossed it into my basket and never gave it a second thought. Expected a warm vanilla black tea smell. Mehh. very sweet honeybush and no vanilla at all.

It tastes o.k. Will finish the 15 bags and won’t be buying again. Maybe use the rest up in the evening during flu season.
