Thanks to QueenOfTarts for this one! Apple pie is a favorite of mine. (Okay, okay, all pies are a favorite of mine.) So I was looking forward to trying this one.
The dry leaf smelled very strongly of apple pie filling; like apples, cinnamon, & other spices (nutmeg, maybe?). Steeped, it’s a little more of a sour apple scent, but I can still get “hot apple pie” from it.
Taste during the sip is a light green tea with spices. After the sip, I’m picking up more of a real “apple pie” taste – well, specifically the filling for an apple pie. Reminds me of the version my Grandmother would make. Quite yummy.
Not getting any crust-like flavors, but still a pretty good approximation of homemade apple pie!
