I often wonder if I’ve over/under leafed or over/under steeped when I am not as excited by a tea as others. I sense some apple and cinnamon. Nothing overly interesting. I’ll drink what I have but won’t bother with it again.

It’s like going home
This tea will bring you right back to your childhood. Thanks to the spicy aroma of cinnamon, the sweet smell of apples baking in the oven and the fresh green tea blend. Don’t remember that last part? Okay, so we added the green tea. It’s a great way to bring all the nostalgic flavour of mom’s dessert right to your mug. So wherever you go, you’ve got the warm memories…but not the calories. Mom would approve.
Ingredients: Green tea, apple pieces, cinnamon, natural and artificial flavouring.

Taste like sweet cinnamony apple pie filling but maybe more like apple cider.
I drank about ¾ of the cup when I realized my husband might like this so I added a little sugar and he loved it. Success! This is the first non-chai tea my husband has liked not counting super sweet black iced tea.
Thanks so much for sharing this tea Jennkay!
Backlog from … well, a backlog anyway.
I got this as part of the Fall Collection and was hoping for something that just screamed apples! I love apple cider and fall is my favorite time of year for it, so expectations were kinda high. The first time I had this tea, it had a really weak apple flavor — not the full bodied richness the scent promised. The second time I had it, I added some apple cider and got quite the disgusting cup. The third time, I overbrewed and finally got some flaky pastry crust taste overpowering weak apple.
The little bit I have left will go to my green tea obsessed friend, if I ever remember to bring her her tea package. >.<
Pulled this one out from the depths when I was reorganizing my home tea cupboard (it’s amazing where small packages of tea can hide!)
I love it’s smell, apple pie was one of my favorites growing up (both my folks and my grandmother had big apple trees) and it’s something that I don’t get a chance to have very often any more. And this smells just like it, lots of apple and spices (though mostly cinnamon), and sweet, but not overly so. I don’t get much from the dry green tea leaves though…
The steeped liquor is a murky yellow and the aroma has mellowed significantly while the cinnamon has become the predominate note. The apple is still there but it’s darker and subdued a bit, it still smells quite nice though. As for the taste… it’s good it just doesn’t live up to the promise of the dry aroma. I actually find that I have to significantly over-steep this to get a full “apple” flavor which ends up making the tea somewhat bitter. Aside from that though it’s not bad, there’s just the right amount of sweetness and spice and the green tea keeps this nice and fresh. My one other complaint is that I wish they would have used a tea base that gave some creamy, pastry like notes… maybe an oolong would have been a better base, but that’s just my opinion.
I really love the idea of an apple pie tea but this just isn’t quite the right one for me so the search is on (along with my pumpkin chai search… though I have a number of samples from Dexter that I need to crack open soon!)
OK back to work… (well for at least as long as this intermission lasts! Go Canada Go!)
I really enjoy this tea, however when they say “Mom’s Apple Pie” it doesn’t taste anything like that. When I hear “Mom’s Apple Pie”, I expect to smell/taste vanilla, apples, spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, all spice) sugar, etc. With this tea it smells like apples and cinnamon (and thats it). I think the name is what throws people off, but if you think of it as just an apple/cinnamon tea and not an apple pie tea you will be fine; its quite delicious.
I get apple, not cinnamon apple, just apple. So, I added some cinnamon. Still apple, that’s it. There’s now a slight warmth to it from the cinnamon I just added but it’s not at all that comforting having a slice of pie taste I thought I would. it’s a good tea for what it is, but not what I bought it for so no repurchase for me.
