When I sip, I taste mostly the tea. The apple flavor is only light notes that highlight the flavor of the green tea. There is also a light hint of raisin and maybe cinnamon (though neither of these are actual ingredients). I like this. It is a pleasant basic drink, with a nice green aftertaste.

I am not a big flavored tea drinker these days. When I do have flavored tea – even my beloved Earl Grey – I want to taste the tea. Even from that perspective this is a little light on the apple flavor. I think those who are expecting hearty GREEN APPLE flavor will be disappointed. I am concerned sTEAp may have missed their target audience.

I don’t mean this to come off as a negative review. I actually enjoyed the cup. It was recommended during the virtual tasting that the flavors pop by adding a bit of cinnamon. Also use your favorite sweetener. I picked a couple pieces of fruit out of the leaf and tasted them – very apple pie. If you are looking for a very lightly flavored green tea, this is a good one.

Sample provided by sTEAp Shoppe. Thanks!

With the flavour complexity you got from this sample, I swear there’s something wrong with my palate. =)

In backyard astronomy some faint fuzzies are so dim you can only observe them by not looking directly at them (it has to do with the design of the eye). This technique is known as averted vision. We call it averted imagination. The same technique may just apply to sipping tea ;)

I never tasted any apple or cinnamon but only green tea too. Wow.

I just made a batch of Cinnamon Dolce Syrup. Bet that would go well with this tea.

I looked up the recipe. Sounds like a sweet addicts delight. What do you use it for?

A while back I enjoyed and went over board with this apple tea by Princess Noori, it was heady and heavenly to me and I am not one for flavored tea either. When having tea, I simply want tea but when having something that is to have been flavored then that is what I am expecting. So the Princess Noori Apple Flavoured Tea was idea.

As you have indicated you are not much on flavored tea, so you might not like this one.

I comment because I have had both type of tea where the flavoring at times is absent and yet it is indicated on the box as being present, virtually perhaps.

Happy teas, good review and thank you. Not that you need input from me.

Seule771 I enjoy the input. It took me years to find out unaltered tea could be so amazing. I have nothing against flavored. Occasionally I love a tea with BIG flavor. Apple is not one of those, but maybe it is because I have never had the right one. Thanks for commenting.

K S : I make a home made version of the Starbucks Caramel Apple Cider! Easy and yummy! And of course, way cheaper than going to SBucks!
