I found some other notes on this tea, so I am updating this review (6/12/2012)(Changes in bold)

Experience buying from Culinary Teas http://steepster.com/places/2981-culinary-teas-online-milford-indiana

I bought a one OZ sample of this in late November, 2011, having brewed it twice (most recently on 6/8/2012?).

Appearance and Aroma of dry leaf: It had a strong, sweet fruity aroma (definitely smell the apple) that smelled like tobacco, and also reminded me of a kind of bubble gum I would buy as a kid (or pop rocks); dry leaf was about the same as the rest of the flavor-added black teas from Culinary Teas: medium grade leaf.

Brewing guidelines: four TSP, four cups H2O; four-cup ceramic teapot, with ceramic basket; stevia added; my standard black tea steeping times and temperatures; three steepings; two separate sessions.

Flavor of tea liquor (based on the most recent session):
1st: OK, but A little bitter
2nd: OK flavor, but missing something.
3rd: not much flavor

Wet Leaf: Slight scent of tobacco and of something artificially sweet.

Tea liquor color: Wonderful, clear, caramel color.

Value: Culinary flavor-added tea’s are generally very reasonably priced; this one is $8.15 / 4 OZ, which puts it at about $2 / OZ (and even less with any discounts and/or if you buy it in larger quantities).

Overall: This was the forth of the batch of thirteen flavor-added teas from Culinary we finished off. To me the best thing about this tea was the aroma of the dry leaf. Overall, my wife especially felt that this tea was a “no go” (we are still looking for that one tea ….).

I like that you put the changes in bold. Makes it easier to see where changes were made, especially if it’s been a while sine the review was originally posted.

Awesome! I’m glad it helped. I wasn’t sure if it was really necessary, but I thought I’d do it anyway. And now I’m glad I did!

Brandied apple and tobacco…sounds like a mixture for a Hookah!

SimpliciTEA

Really? Those Middle-Eastern pipes are intriguing …

Bonnie

Hee Hee I went to a hookah bar last Friday with my 18 year old granddaughter. They serve a huge pot of mint tea, and mint vanilla flavored stuff’ is what we chose for our big pipe. My granddaughter loved it. (I’d rather do that than sky dive!)

SimpliciTEA

Sounds great! I’m glad the two of you had a good time. flavored-added tobacco does sound interesting.

Mmm, melted butter spooned over baked apples. I think with the MIA brandy notes, this would be pretty nice paired with cinnamon and sugar.

Also, update on Tango: She’s looking better, but still won’t get up and move around much voluntarily. I think she’ll be fine, as she’s moving less stiffly each day, but I’m a worrier by nature, so yeah.

So I was looking at my teas and decided to find one that I’ve had for awhile. Before I get to the new ones. Dry this smells like faint apple and steeped the apple smell becomes much stronger and this tastes and I added sugar kind of like a tart granny smith like apple and then the black tea. I did not taste the buttersotch chips though. And I think this is pretty good although abit on the tart side for me. I got this from a buddy awhile back so thank you.

Think more buttery apple tea. Not much brandy to speak of. Overall, tasty. However, the AWOL brandy is a little disappointing.

thank you for this yum sample moraiwe
i didn’t make notes and i suspect i just drank it all really really quickly cuz i liked it so much and now it is just a small fleeting memory in my floppy mind.
but i like all apple teas. and i like alcohol flavors. and i like caramel flavors. so i must have liked it tons.
so like i said, voila! it’s gone in a blink!
