drank Mom's Apple Pie by DAVIDsTEA
79 tasting notes

Yet another one of the tea’s I received for myself from my online order, this was the tea that gave me knowledge of DAVIDsTEA having online only blends and was what prompted me to place an order. I mean who isn’t a sucker from some apple pie?!

Dry this tea has a green apple and cinnamon aroma to it that is quite pungent but not overpowering, very simple familiar smell that almost anyone will be able to recognize immediately. Steeping the tea will accentuate the apple aroma and kill off a bit of the cinnamon aroma.

The final brew is slightly green and retains its green apple taste, there is a cinnamon touch mixed in with it. After that it starts loosing its similarities with apple pie, certainly gets the job done for a tea though. I want to try it again with brown sugar in it to see if that adds to the pie feeling a bit more.

Tea, Earl Grey, Hot!

I will attempt to taste and comment on each and every blend offered from DAVIDsTEA and of course anything else that comes across my path.

I only drink tea brewed from loose leaf tea, and tend to sweeten my teas with a teaspoon of raw cane sugar per 8oz of tea and consider a cup either 12oz or 16oz depending on what mug I want to use.

I generally do not put milk in my tea’s; however sometimes I may make a ‘London Fog’ style drink or add milk to herbal infusions to add a bit more creaminess to it.

And I generally enjoy drink a nice hot tea while relaxing listening to some Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd.

I am quite liberal with my Tea ratings, I take the smiley face to heart for judging. If I really like it then it will score a high grade regardless of the brand or if I can keep it in my cupboard or not. But to break it down further a bit more check this out:

0-10 – Wouldn’t drink it if I was dying.
10-20 – Are you sure this didn’t come out of a bag?
20-50 – There is hope for this tea…somewhere but not here
50-60 – Drinkable, but not stockable
60-70 – Ok, were onto something here!
70-80 – Wow you gotta try this
80+ I freaking love it, where can I buy it?
