drank Big Apple by DAVIDsTEA
90 tasting notes

Big Apple is yet another sample from my order with David’s Tea. It’s definitely not something I would order on my own but I like it. In fact, I think I love it. Like a lot. And I hate apple so this, as a whole, is quite strange.

Big Apple tastes like the all the things I love about applesauce without all the things I hate like the texture and mushiness. The apple was nice. Not at all overpowering or jolly rancher-ish. There was a very nice spice flavor—perhaps nutmeg. I don’t know where it came from—maybe the green tea—-but it was appreciated because apple without nutmeg is a boring apple. I also got a strong buttery almost brown butter or caramel taste. I am not sure where that came from so I may be imagining it or maybe it’s from the white tea.

I was not expecting to like this one as much as I did but I’m thinking I will buy this during the summer to have iced. Or perhaps another apple tea from David’s (I have my eye on Mom’s Apple Pie). Or maybe both. I’m like that—I buy in bulk.

I love this tea, but it isn’t something I grab much in the winter. It reminds me of caramel apples. It is great iced, or at least cold.

I just got another sample in my latest order—did a happy dance—so I am going to try it iced this time around.

I LOVE Mom’s Apple Pie!! Oh, it’s soooo good. Now my mouth is watering.

I’m holding myself back from ordering another shipment just to get Mom’s Apple Pie. I figure 3 huge tea orders in a month is overkill.

Profile

Bio

Book blogger. Hockey fan. Reformed coffee drinker. Newly minted tea addict. I grammar police myself and no one else. Pu’er lover.

My favorite type of tea is pu’er. I can see myself living in a house alone with just pu’er cakes, a electric tea kettle, my trusty pu’er pick from Mandala and a thermos. I prefer ripe pu’er but love raw pu’er as well. My current favorite is the Special Dark from Mandala Tea.

Black Tea-I also love all forms of black tea. Black tea is where I started and I still love the malty loveliness of a good black tea. My current favorite is Grandpa’s Anytime Tea from Butiki.

Green Tea-Green tea is pretty hit and miss with me. I have never really developed a liking towards it. I have been dying to explore green tea more. Especially matcha and genmaicha. My current favorite is Autumn Harvest Laoshan Green from Verdant Tea.

Herbals/Mate-It depends on what’s in them. I gravitate more to herbs and spices rather than fruit flavors. My current favorite is Fired Up Fennel from Davids Tea.

I love mate (and guayusa). It helped me kick my coffee habit to one cup a day. I will try any blend with mate in it. My current favorite is Chocolate Rocket from Davids Tea.

White Tea-Sadly, I haven’t tried many white teas but I am planning on it very soon.

Oolong Tea-I have tried one or two oolong teas but in blends only. I am dying to try a straight oolong. My current favorite is Milk Oolong by Mandala Tea.

Rooibos-I love rooibos blends but they are very hit and miss with me. I love the woodiness of rooibos. My favorite is currently Oh Canada from Davids Tea.

Flavored Tea-I love flavored teas. I am willing to try just about any flavor combination and the weirder the better. My current favorite flavored tea is Laoshan Black Chocolate Genmaicha by Verdant Tea.

I am always searching for a tea with fig or chili in it.

My favorite tea companies-Mandala Tea (their Phatty Cake was my first ever “Oh My God” tea moment), Butiki Teas, Verdant Tea, and Davids Tea
