Hmm..not quite sure what to think of this one. Definitely not what I was expecting. It’s strange for sure. I’ve been holding off on trying this one since reading Amanda’s note about it. Thai curry flavoured caramel apple tea? No thanks.

After trying it, I can def. get a hint of the curry association. Although I can’t say I’ve had Thai curry very many times anyway. But mostly I just find it perfumey, in a weird way.

I made the mistake of eating one of the caramel chunks from the bag. I couldn’t help it – they looked so yum! But no, they taste like crumbly perfumed caramel ick. Blech. That’ll teach me to pick through my tea for bits :P

Once steeped, it is absolutely gorgeous! It has the same sparkly quality as Glitter & Gold from David’s. I love watching the shimmers swirl around my cup. Ooh and they’re also in some Lush bubble bars! I’m thinking Sunny Side off the top of my head and maybe a Christmas one from last year. Anyway, love the shimmers. They’re mesmerizing!

Unfortunately, this tastes a whole lot like it smells. I’m not really getting a lot of apple, but if I really try I can taste it in the background. I mostly just taste perfumey sweetness, with a hint of that curry-reminiscent something. I don’t hate it, but as a caramel apple tea it’s a bit disappointing. As it cools though, I find myself enjoying it more and more. There’s some odd addictive quality that just won’t let me stop sipping. I can see it maybe growing on me.

I just got my order in the mail this morning. Mine smells super yummy, caramely & appley. Hope I have a better result with mine.

I wonder if we got some from a different batch, or if our noses just disagree? Such a strange experience with this one.

I think after it sat it developed a perfume smell. Because when I tried it yesterday all I got was perfum. It was unpleasant.

Bio

Queer femme looking for love in the form of tea. Currently on a (seemingly never-ending) quest to convince my girlfriend of the magic of loose leaf.

Let’s see..I’m a 23 year old seemingly perma-student, having finished at university and moved on to college. I love reading. I love tea. I love reading while drinking tea. It really doesn’t take much to keep me happy.

Black tea is my all time favourite, preferably hot with milk and sugar. I like flavoured blacks the best, and my taste is embarrassingly unrefined. If it has some outlandish candy or dessert or fruity sounding name, I’m all over it. Especially things like coconut, caramel, chocolate (the usual suspects), bubblegum, cotton candy, and the list goes on. If it’s supposed to taste like something it’s not, odds are I’m going to love it. I also love a good earl grey, floral teas, and anything with currants. Love me some currants!

When it comes to iced teas I love fruity herbal blends and matés, for the most part. They are my hydration option of choice in the summer and I always have at least a glass ready for me in the fridge, if not a pitcher.

I am a self-proclaimed David’sTea fangirl, so please excuse the fact that most of my logs tend to be a little biased in their favour. I just can’t help myself, I must try all-the-tea from David’s!

I’m starting to get interested in matcha, and though I’ve loved the cups I’ve had prepared for me by others, I’ve never tried making it myself. I’m going to have to break down and order some soon, if only just to try.
