drank Mom's Apple Pie by DAVIDsTEA
83 tasting notes

This tea definitely deserves an upgraded rating to a perfect score. It has this wonderful green tea aroma, laced with the sweetness of apples and the spicy bittersweetness of cinnamon. The aftertaste lingers in my mouth and leaves the impression of pie crust, and before I know it I am instantly swept away to the many falls I spent in my mom’s kitchen as she peeled those haralson apples and let them sit in cinnamon and sugar until they were nice and juicy. The nostalgia this tea forces me into will hold me over until next fall when I can take in the aroma and tartness that is my mom’s special apple pie. I don’t know how they did it, but the experience I get when drinking this tea goes beyond my imagination for how DavidsTea made this flavored gem. However, sense of smell bypasses the cortex and feeds right into the emotional center of the brain, causing spontaneous recall of meaningful events. I can’t wait until next fall – I hope they start selling this one again because I am running out!

Bio

I’ve been drinking loose leaf teas for about 4 years and really enjoy the sense of contentment it brings to my busy life. I suppose tea is an experience you inherently have to slow down and enjoy, as it quiets the mind and allows you to hear more readily. I am also interested in Buddhism, yoga, meditation, and psychotherapy.

Here are some of my favorite teas:

Organic Silver Needle White Tea (Teavivre)
Bailin Gongfu Black Tea (Teavivre)
Buttered Rum (DavidsTea)
Gyrokuro/Gyrokuro Genmaicha (Teavana)
Apple Green Tea (Indigo Tea Company)
Strawberry Festival (Indigo Tea Company)
Mom’s Apple Pie (David’s Tea)
Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls/Rooibos Tropica Blend (Teavana)
