From Betjeman and Barton

Apple and cherry plum combine their flavours with caramel and wild strawberries on a base of green China tea: fudges and apple pieces round off this delicious blend. It seems to be a gourmet walk in the heart of Bretonne country.

I had this in the afternoon. This tastes like a green caramel but slightly more citrusy. Problem is that I got distracted and so all I remember was that it was tasty. So ill be having this again to get a proper note on it. :)

Ysaurella

would love to know if you tried it again and what you think of it

Sil

I did, but i can’t recall. If my taste buds aren’t wonky today i’ll make a mental note to try it again this weekend :)

Argh, Steepster ate my note! Well shoot. Thanks to Sil for this tea. Long story short: I found this to be a nice tea. The fruit flavoring was authentic, the caramel light but smooth, the green tea base inoffensive. I’m not in love, but I do enjoy the cup. I’m not much on flavored greens these days except in some circumstances, but I found this one to be very nice.

I will admit to writing all my tasting notes in a gmail draft; that’s how lazy I am. No rewrites, ever.

Stephanie

Smart idea Anna…it’s the WORST when you write an awesome note and Steepster eats it!

Dinosara

My laziness extends the other direction… I can’t be bothered to write it somewhere else and transfer it, haha. Sometimes when Steepster is being fussy I will copy the text before I hit submit, but when it’s generally behaving I never remember to do so.

Anna

Oh, well, then I guess it’s just my inflated ego. ‘I wrote this. This is ART. It must not be lost to the world!’

Dinosara

Maybe you just value your time more than I value mine, haha. :D

Anna

Considering the extreme wordiness of my tasting notes, I would say that’s highly doubtful…

Thanks muchly to Sil for passing down a sample of this!

Yay for no astringent base. I made sure the water cooled down before steeping, and honestly, I kind of forgot about the kettle, so the water was even cooler than planned. But it works really well.

I taste mostly strawberries and fresh apple. There are no artificial fruit flavours here, which I appreciate. I can’t pick up on any caramel, however, but perhaps because the pieces couldn’t melt as easily. I’ll have to go back and see what’s left in the leaves.

This cup smells like spring to me.

Steeped some of this hot and set some up to cold brew in the fridge, so I could decupboard the whole sample that I got from Sil a while back. This has been a week of sipdowns, and that is such a good thing!

The main flavors I’m getting here are the tartness of an apple, the surprisingly rich caramel flavor, and then a vegetal green tea beneath it all. I know there are supposed to be a lot of other fruits in the ingredients, but its possible I could have lost them due to scent/flavor contamination from being in a drawer with other teas. That’s the main reason I’m coldbrewing, too – to see if I can pick up on those other flavors with the different brew parameters.

This is really good though I agree that the caramel and apple seem like it would be better suited to a black tea base. Still, it works for my afternoon cup today.

thank you Sil!
i remember liking it. i mean, hello, caramel! how could i not?!
but i suspect i’m getting green tea burn out.

i feel a strange amount of responsibility to review every single swap tea in as much detail as i can muster. but i’m realizing it’s just not going to be humanly possible. because even though i tell everyone how much more time i spend on here than on any other site and also that i love tea drinking so very much, i simply don’t have the time. i just don’t.
it’s a bummer. but i have limitations. pouty face.

Sipdown! 809. This tea is pretty tasty! Before having any idea what it actually was (aside from green), my guess would have been that it was a caramel apple tea. Looks like I’m not too far off! Just missed the plum and strawberry flavours, which make sense as it tasted a bit different than just straight apple. This is definitely the best caramel apple tea I’ve ever had though – nice green base, delicious caramel, and distinct apple flavour. I’m pretty impressed! Thanks Sil!

Received this in a swap from Sil.

The dry tea smells like a buttery green tea. The brewed tea smells buttery and nutty. As it cools off more, there is more of a fruity smell to it.

There is definitely a caramel taste to the tea. A fruity type caramel flavour. The aftertaste is more nutty, buttery green tea.

Overall a good tea. I am not too fond of the fruity flavour, but it goes well with the caramel.

Well, that was an interesting tasting. Free sample from B&B, and I liked it quite a lot, but am still trying to process something that smells so fruity and sweet, along with the buttery, and that tastes so *un*fruity and so buttery. And not sweet! What’s that about?!? Actually I think some of it may be that the green tea base is more Sencha-like bitter than — well, than not. (China green is more than a bit broad as a category! But I still think it tastes a bit like a Sencha.) Got a few infusions, and all were tasty.

I’ll be tasting this again, and may have a better sense of what I think of it, but may not manage anything much more. Pity a classy operation like Betjeman and Barton provide such useless brewing instructions.

1.5 tablespoons for 375 ml

A little astringency. Authentic plum aroma. Marshmallow aftertaste. Sencha base flavour comes through. Odd sharp metallic/pungent/slightly swampy note that has a zinging sensation on the tongue.

Thanks to Sil for sharing!
