I blended this tea when Ovation tea offered some of us a chance to blend our own with their ‘create your own’ blend tool for free.

I actually ordered the honeybush but was accidentally sent the black tea. They are super nice and are going to send me a corrected batch. So, look for another review of this same blend but made with honeybush soon.

This tea is sooo good. It smells great in the bag and brews up just as nice and tasty. The black tea seems to be of a high quality with little astringency. I was working and didn’t even pay attention to how many minutes I steeped it and it still came out great. The predominant flavors in this are brown sugar and cinnamon with a touch of apple flavor. The apple doesn’t overwhelm it like a lot of apple flavored teas. It really does taste like an apple pie. Last winter I was trying really hard to lose weight and all I wanted was apple pie. I could never find a tea to fill that craving and I would have killed for this one. I love it. Can you tell? I did good, if I do say so myself. :)

I’m curious which apple teas you’ve tried that came out too appley (I have the opposite problem…I want a good cider style apple tea, but I end up with ones with a hint of apple and loads of cinnamon or other artificial taste). Glad this worked out for you though, sounds delish!!

This one was definitely not cider-like. :) Pie. :)
I’ll have to look though my list to see which apple ones I liked and didn’t.

I’m okay with pie too, luckily. : ) Really just anything with good and authentic apple taste. : )

Sorry. I’ll be back soon. It was so hot this summer and had no AC. Then I was travelling for work, and then I moved this last weekend. So… I’ll be back any day now. I ordered that maple cheesecake oolong from 52 teas which will hopefully be here today.
