Dry, omg I adored the smell of this one. I’m a sucker for all things apple and cinnamon and couldn’t wait to try it. I wasn’t the biggest fan of mom’s apple pie, and this had potential!

Sadly, despite it being a step up from MAP, it still wasn’t what I was hoping for after the brewing. I felt like it wanted to be a complex flavour and instead was a watered down forever nuts brewed in apple juice. It was like wanting and expecting a slice of fresh hot apple pie and getting . . . apple slices with cinnamon sprinkled on top. Good in and of itself, but such a let down after high hopes.

Not a bad tea, but not one I decided to stock up either. Farewell Hot Toboggan, I hope you find someone who loves you.

Bio

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
