From DAVIDsTEA

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.

I’ve become addicted to this. So perfect for autumn. I’ve got to hurry up and place a new order for more of this and Pumpkin Chai. Good tea makes the seasons so much more enjoyable. :)
I just made a big pot of creamy soup. Now to bake some pumpkin butterscotch muffins! I’m going to start a cooking blog soon. I have so many yummy recipes to share.

I just bought another big tin of Pumpkin Chai, so I hear what you’re saying gal pal!
Also, do you think your package got lost in the big bad mail? :(

Ashley Bain

:( I’m guessing if by now you haven’t received it that must be the case.. that really bums me I put a lot into making all your samples. :(:( I wonder where it is..

DaisyChubb

No worries my dear, I think it was meant to be.
What if the person it went to was having a really tough time in their life – it could have been just the totally random thing to keep them going.
You really never know!! <3

Thank you Darby for this tea !

This is my first David’s tea and I was a little curious to know how apples and cinnamon would work on a green tea base.

It works perfectly well, I can get every flavor : the crisp of the pie, the cinnamon, the apples. It it really yummy.

As a French, I have to confess the apple pie is not a childhood reference for me. For apple cake reference,we are more on tarte tatin or simple tarte aux pommes here – and there is no cinnamon in Tarte Tatin and sometimes but rarely in a Tarte aux pommes.
So none nostalgia about the Mom’s cake (however my Mom was and is still a awful pastry cooker ! She makes nice salted meals but not desserts at all)

I appreciate the pastry taste of this tea, it is not only an heavy apple & cinnamon flavors.

The thing I liked less with this blend is the tea itself, I cannot really get the tea base.
To me it tastes more like a tisane than a tea. The good point is there is no astringency, no bitterness at all but I would have loved to get the tea base more present.

Despite this point, I really liked it but it seems this blend is discontinued ?

Lots of DT are seasonal, but sometimes, they come back the next season…if they are very popular, they make the permanent collection. This one in my opinion was not worthy to stay, I agree with your comment, you can’t taste the base tea and it wasn’t even close to the traditional tarte aux pommes! For me, not very interesting, but it’s always nice to try something new, right?

Ysaurella

absolutely ! I think this one is nice especially for the evening

momo

They have it online year round I think, but it might be sold out right now.

Oh wow! Yum! This is great! I don’t know why this tea has received mediocre reviews. The brewed aroma is very reminiscent of apple pie: the buttery cinnamon apple filling and the flaky pie crust. The taste is uber delicious! It’s not exactly like apple pie, but this is tea. It can’t be exactly like apple pie or that’s what it’d be! This is the next best thing and waaaaay fewer calories.

I added a little sweetener (gasp! I know!) and it did bring the flavor profile closer to sugary pie goodness and less like apple flavored green tea. I’m really enjoying this! In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I finished the first cup before even starting this tasting note. Time for a second cup!! Thanks Kittenna for this fantastic sample!

I saw this on the website and was debating on getting it but it sounds delicious.

Alphakitty

I wonder if they tinkered with the blend a bit—it was discontinued for a good bit, then came back recently.

CHAroma

@Cedes, I definitely recommend it! I’m hoping to pick up some more myself. So yummy!

@Alphakitty, I’m not sure. This was my first experience with it. But if they did make changes, I can only surmise that it was for the better!

Kittenna

I think I bought this before it was discontinued/brought back, so the blend is likely the original (unless it was tinkered with before becoming an online exclusive).

Bought this for my partner who is a fan of apple pie. Tonight when I asked “what tea do you want?” The answer, not surprisingly was “whatever you’re having”. So I’m having this even though I knew I didn’t like it, just so she can drink it.

I can’t get too eloquent about a green tea that tastes like watery apple cider. If you leave it too long, well, it’s green tea, it will punish you. I did ok with just under three minutes at 180 but the resteep was forgotten, was more like 5 min and made for a bitter tea.

But really, on the whole, apple cider. Long aftertaste, probably because of the lingering cinnamon.

So far “lime gelato” is DAVID’s most enjoyable green tea and “Kokomo green” their worst. "North African mint (organic) " is so unlike green tea that you can be surprised when you read the label and see “green tea”

Tealizzy

Kokomo green was terrible. :P Haven’t tried the other ones you mention, though.

JustJames

i got apple oatmeal with no cinnamon…. i don’t think i even put numbers to it it was so bad. and i did return it because it was horrid.

Amariel

I didn’t like Kokomo Green either.

Cavocorax

I think I’m the only out there who actually liked Kokomo Green!
(what’s wrong with me? :O)

Nxtdoor

Cavo — dry, it smells like nail polish remover. Brewed, it tastes worse than bitter melon. Maybe you like bitter melon?

What?! I haven’t logged this one yet? Well, I best get to it then.. Mom’s Apple Pie is pretty good. Sometimes I really like it, and other times it’s just okay enough to drink the rest of.

I have developed yet another chest cold, I have a deadline that I fear I’m not going to meet in two days, and I’m feeling generally miserable. I made an executive decision that a hot toddy was in order to turn my night around. So, I added a shot (or two) of Hot Damn! 100 proof cinnamon schnapps to Mom’s Apple Pie. Yes, it had a lighter fluid-y flavor to it at first. Then buzz took over and it still tasted like apple cinnamon lighter fluid but I just didn’t care as much. sigh

Footnote We don’t normally have Hot Damn! 100 proof schnapps in the bar. My hubby informed me that he bought the 100 proof instead of the regular one because they were the same price, and we’ll use less of the 100 proof. Yep, my sweetie is being economical and stuff :)

DaisyChubb

That sounds amazing. And EFFECTIVE!
Sometimes you gotta sneak Hot 100 in to a November football game in Saskatchewan. trust me, it’s the only thing that can keep you warm when it’s blizzarding, you’re in a parka, and you’re watching your favorite team!

Amariel

Ha ha ha! This post made my day!

I <3 you Jenn!

Jenn

DaisyChubb I’m going to have to come up for a visit to appreciate the true beauty of Hot 100 :) I just hope it doesn’t grow hair on my chest, you know?

Heather Martin Only a true friend would love me for my half drunken apple cinnamon lighter fluid ramblings :)

Thanks to QueenOfTarts for this one! Apple pie is a favorite of mine. (Okay, okay, all pies are a favorite of mine.) So I was looking forward to trying this one.

The dry leaf smelled very strongly of apple pie filling; like apples, cinnamon, & other spices (nutmeg, maybe?). Steeped, it’s a little more of a sour apple scent, but I can still get “hot apple pie” from it.

Taste during the sip is a light green tea with spices. After the sip, I’m picking up more of a real “apple pie” taste – well, specifically the filling for an apple pie. Reminds me of the version my Grandmother would make. Quite yummy.

Not getting any crust-like flavors, but still a pretty good approximation of homemade apple pie!

I LOVE this tea! It’s really too bad they don’t make it anymore.

momo

When I complained about it they told me it’d be back in fall haha. Hopefully they keep their promise.

Lindsey

It does seem like it would be a perfect fall tea. Let’s see if they bring it back in the fall collection!

CHAroma

AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! *Fingers crossed!!!

1.5 tablespoons of dry leaf for 375 ml of water.

The aroma of the brewed tea is mainly that of tart apple and cinnamon. There is a hint of baked crust scent in the background.

On the sip, the apple taste is rather flat and trails artificially to the end of the sip. The aftertaste is pleasant and does not carry the flat notes from the sip. Cinnamon flavour is mildly present. Buttery baked crust notes come through.

I miss this tea so much. It was extravagant. All I had hoped for and more. You are so lucky to stil have some left.

Sweet Canadian

Sadness.I really wanted to try this one, but I have been hesitant to get 50 grams.

Raritea

I ordered 50 grams of this one with my last online order. I’ve had my eye on it for a while but it is only available online and I decided to chance it. Not my favorite tea but I’m really glad to have something apple-y in my collection now!

Sweet Canadian

I love apple-y teas. I got Della Terra’s apple pie because I could order a bit to try. And I LOVE it.

Raritea

Yum! I’m going to have to keep that one in mind!! Thanks!!

Mom’s Apple Pie + Pumpkin Chai = Decadent perfection.

Both fruity and spicy nothing else can beat it.
It’s a first story of love between the mixture and me.

The first aroma is really cinnamon and baked apple.
The first sip is fruity from the apple mixed with the spices of the Chai.
What a treat!

I just was watching “The tree of life” with that blend and feel like life was unreal. I was feeling good at this exactly moment in a way I can’t describe. The only thing that could make this moment better would be the presence of my girlfriend haha!

Do you have others blend to propose me?

Kay Kanada

Copabanana and exotica are a really nice herbal duo!

Maxime-Daniel Friðrikson

Thanks for the blend idea! :) The only problem is that… I don’t have any of theses :P

Erin

Oooh, I’m going to try both of those blends!!

Dazaii

I tried it annnnnd…..it’s very tasty :D

Now THIS one is like an apple cider tea.
It’s really quite nice, very fruity! It’s perfect without any sugar, but I bet if sugar was added it would taste even more like apple pie.

The green tea is really what makes it unique to apple cider. It feels so much better for me than a powder mix too! The green tea adds little toasty roasty notes that conjure up the crust perhaps, but for me it just grounds it and reminds me that it is still a tea.

I steeped for just under 4 minutes and it’s just right for me. I wouldn’t add this to my permanent collection, but it’s a very well balanced tea. Not too spicy, not too sweet. Great to drink on a cold, rainy day like today.

WAIT- it just hit me! This tastes just like my favorite shot! Apple pie shot – SoCo, Green apple sourpuss and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. I must add alcohol to this when I get home. a little spiced rum perhaps? Nice thing is, this tea doesn’t neet the tongue numbing sprinkle of cinnamon on top – it captures just the right amount!

EDIT – I added a dollop of soft vanilla ice cream on the top. Now THIS is apple pie.

EDIT again – Second steep has a lot of straight up green tea flavour, which I like a lot actually. Would be a good drink to have while eating a very sweet dessert

aisling of tea

THANK YOU. I got this to go today and I’ve been trying to place the taste memory. Apple cider and caramel apple shots (green apple sourpuss and butterscotch schnapps) I am in love with this tea, this is a tinner for sure.

DaisyChubb

yeah caramel apple shots are the bomb. the shizz. the best :D
I’m still finishing up my cup, but it is such a quality tea! Really feels like fall now n_n

Wonder what this tea would be like with a little butterscotch schnapps.. eh? eeeh?

aisling of tea

Oh god…I wish I had money for liquor, all we have in the house is whiskey…which wouldn’t be bad…hmmm…

Jenn

Whiskey would so work! With a little bit of sugar… yum!

DaisyChubb

Absolutely!!!

oops, nope, not for me. i got apple oatmeal and no cinnamon whatsoever. i will refrain from a number, but this was a full out miss from the david’s teas hit or miss tendency. i’m afraid it wasn’t even an apple cider. just apple powder in water…. i actually returned it.
