drank Baked Apple Pie by Teaopia
116 tasting notes

From the GCTTB #3

This one interested me when I first saw it, nuts and butter from the oolong mixed with apples and spices? Yes please!

I ended up over steeping this, the wonders of getting distracted by Facebook :p but it was quite forgiving which surprised me. The aroma had lots of butter and nuts with just a bit of apple underneath, but it was a fairly subtle.

Taste wise, I didn’t get “apple pie” right off the bat, the apple actually didn’t show up till the finish. That said the butter and nut notes with that touch of cinnamon was a nice mellow intro to the tea. Once the apple kicked in it just made it that much better.

Certainly not in your face with flavor, but for those days that your looking for mild and natural it hits the spot.

Ever since I discovered the wide world that is loose-leaf teas, I haven’t been able to go back. It doesn’t seem to matter what type it is or if it’s “straight” or “flavored” tea is my thing. It’s actually quite funny as I’m surrounded by coffee lovers who just can’t quite grasp why, to me, tea is better than coffee. :D (which considering it’s less-than a 5 minute walk to each of 2 separate Tim Horton’s, a Starbucks AND a Second Cup… that’s saying something!)

On the whole I tend to prefer my tea strong and “au natural” with no sweeteners, milk or other additions, but like most everyone there’s always exceptions to the rule… just not many of them.

Aside from tea I love reading (especially if there is a fireplace or campfire involved), camping/hiking, horseback riding and Healing Touch (similar to Reiki). Oh and computers and board games (euro style, is there anything else? ;)) and… and… chuckles OK so I have a large variety of interests.
