drank Candy Apple by Adagio Teas
483 tasting notes

Yes! Of all the free holiday samples they could have given me, this was the one I wanted the most. I love apple flavor in all its incarnations.

Now, I like the packaging, but who decided to make the steeping instructions darker red on a red background? I can barely read it. And the pyramid bag is convenient, but no string? I had to pick it up out of the water by a corner, which was probably not very safe. I guess they assume I have a spoon.

Anyway, this is a pretty good candy apple tea. Like others have said, I don’t taste the cinnamon at all, just apple and caramel. Which is fine, I like it. It’s like a step up from Tazo’s Organic Apple Red, which I know is a rooibos, but they taste almost identical. My only complaint is that the caramel apple flavor could be a little stronger. I find that after 5 minutes, which is what’s recommended, the ceylon gets a bit overwhelming. But if I had a chance, I would definitely sample this again.

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. 20-something and living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, EBM/synthpop/industrial geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I prefer black teas, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons. My favorites tend to be yunnan tips, earl grey, golden monkey, chai, and keemun. My favorite add-ons are plum, cinnamon, coconut, apple, raspberry, bergamot, cucumber, sage, vanilla, and caramel.

I’m shy about green tea, curious about white, and learning to love oolong. I hate rooibos and anything with orchid, fennel, or jasmine.

I’m currently growing my own tea. I have a 3-year-old potted Camellia sinensis, and I plan on picking a tiny bit of new growth this spring for my first try at drying my own leaves.

Since joining, I’ve traded with: Kaliska, QueenOfTarts, LiberTEAS, JustJames, Spencer, Ninavampi, Jillian, Teafreak, KeenTeaThyme, and RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas.
