Part of the David’s Tea fall collection.

It smells like Jolly Ranchers in the bag so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect…

My first sip – hmm. this is an oddly disconcerting mix of flavors. I was hoping there would be more apple and I really feel like the nut and the rose are clashing with each other and I’m picking up on a slight bitterness too. I normally like rose teas but this is going in the solid “meh” category – I’m not disappointed that I only got 1 oz.

I smelled hard candy with this too, and while sipping found it to be sickeningly sweet. It seems you enjoyed it more than I did. The flavors really don’t blend well together do they?

Not so much.

Last night’s Halloween party was fun. It’s always nice to visit with old friends over delicious food and drinks. One of the hosts totally committed to his costume and shaved his head to turn himself into Mr. Clean! Despite my costume decision-making procrastination, I’m happy with how it came together. Some of my friends even said they didn’t recognize me at first. In the end, I decided to go as a skeleton. Here’s a link to a picture of me in my costume from my Beautylish profile http://www.beautylish.com/f/gcqcax/skeleton?ref=modal

As for this tea, it’s another “unfavorite” done! This tea isn’t bad; it just doesn’t really suit my taste. I haven’t developed a fondness for tea with a strong rose flavor yet. Maybe it’s not for me, or perhaps I just haven’t found the right one?

Nik

The Persian Apple tea has a strong…rose…flavour? That’d throw me for a loop, for sure. o.O

Your skeleton make-up is fantastic. You look terrifying and I love it.

canadianadia

Thanks Nik! It took quite a while to do, but I really enjoyed the process. Halloween is such a great time for me to indulge in my love for make-up.

Helena

I can’t stand flowery drinks (strong rose, lavender, etc…) I don’t mind if they are in a tea I just can’t stand them when they ARE the tea :D so this one would not be for me :D

Invader Zim

Your make-up skills are amazing!

canadianadia

Thanks for the kind words. I’m so glad I found Steepster. I’m on a few interest-based sites like this, but there is something special about the folks here on Steepster. I’m glad my tangents of my personal life and non-tea interests are appreciated here :) United by the common interest of yummy tea

CupofTree

Another one to do face paint cool! Looks awesome!

canadianadia

Thanks CupofTree, yours looks great also. It’s always fun to find Steepsters with other common interests.

I decided to pre-bag some of this tea for work, so I start drinking it up. Smelling the lovely sour apple scent, I gave in and made a cup. I steeped it quite cool for 2 minutes, and kept the bag for another steep.

Mmm. Yes, there’s lots of rose, but the apple flavouring in this one is just so nice. I don’t really know why there are so many nuts in it, but I’m going to eat them once I do a second steep.

I have to admit, this one was love at first sip.

I drank a whole darn pot of it before I even realized it! I loved the hint of rose, the sweetness – the aroma filled me up and took me away! I wish I could think about how it tasted a little more – but I have a group of ten teenagers running around my desk and otherwise being teenagers. But hey, that’s what I get for being on Steepster at work!

Okay it took me a whole pot to realize that this tea tasted like bubblegum to me. I don’t know why! It was just light, not intense. But hey! Also I ate a pistachio. It tasted like rose. I don’t regret it lol.

Meowkattack

I really need to make this one! I opened it and keep inhaling it’s yummy scent, but I always move on to steep something else. No more! I’ll have to brew this up tomorrow.

BoxerMama

Also in love with this one. I didn’t imagine enjoying an apple tea.

Mélissa

I knew I couldn’t be the only one in love with this.

katgolik

Yep…. brewed this up last night, and still did not like. Admittedly, I way oversteeped (ah, whoops, I did this last time too!), but aside from a bit of astringency, the flavour just is strange. My mom commented that it was perfumey, and I agree. Although she usually likes rose teas, this was a “no” from both of us. I still have a cup’s worth left to try (and NOT oversteep), but as I remarked previously, my opinion is unlikely to change.

Roses, pistachio, and Persia. This tea makes me think of halva more than anything else, and how wonderful it would be if someone created a chocolate and/or pistachio halva tea.

But back to reality. The dry leaf doesn’t have that many tea leaves in it, but there are a lot of pistachios. Scent-wise, it’s very heavy on the apple, like a sour apple Jolly Rancher. This conjures up images of pucker-inducing tea.

At first, I let this steep for three minutes, and there was hardly any flavour. It was so incredibly subtle. Maybe there was a faint fruitiness from the beginning, and the pistachio was an afterthought, a very distant one. So I cheated and stuck my Tea Stick back into my mug for another minute.

Now it’s much better. Very apple-y. Of course not as pucker-inducing as anticipated, but it’s like Granny Smith apple. The rose is there but not overpowering. And pistachios are still an afterthought.

It’s not stock-up-freakout-worthy, but definitely not a regrettable purchase either. I can see this being ultra refreshing iced. A very youthful, low caffeine treat.

I have drunk a lot of tea today! Can anyone say tea drunk…..lol

Apples are delicious in tea. This one is no exception to that rule. The pistachio adds a nice flavour, a sweet nuttiness (haha, nutty like me!). But then wait for it……rose?……hmmm, don’t like that as much. I think this would be better without roses but I guess it might also be not quite as sweet.

Anyway, this isn’t my fav apple tea but it is still very tasty. I don’t know if I would get more when my 20g sample is finished or not. I will have to see when I sipdown.

I put some in the fridge to chill, and it does redeem itself a little there. Because it is very refreshing.

And it resteeps fairly well.

What ARE your favorite apple teas? I’ve been looking for a good one!

ashmanra

You are tempting me to order the apple tea that Emeric Harney designed for Harney and Sons….

tigress_al

Unfortunatly my favourite apple tea was seasonal and no longer available, it was Baked Apple from DAVIDsTEA. My other favourite is from my local tea shop. Coincidently, it is Apple Pistachio Rooibos (but there is no rose).

DT does have a “Big Apple” blend that is slightly tart, but I enjoy it as an iced tea.

There isn’t really that many apple blends available that I have tried, but the holiday season is coming up.

I definitely did not care for this one. The smell of the dry tea was pretty overwhelming, and then the smell in the cup was like soapy water. Sometimes may it could come off as rosewater, but hardly.

The taste wasn’t much more than a delicate rose flavored water. Not even rosewater, not even green tea. I’m guessing you need to just steep this way longer or something despite it having green tea. It just wasn’t that good. It was drinkable though. As it cooled a lot, there was more of an apple flavor.

Not one I’ll probably try again, but it was fun to try it!

CupofTree

spot on review! it was a disappointing tea for sure. definitely fun to try though :)

Forgot that I had this one yesterday and never logged it. I bought an ounce of this because it sounded like a fantastic combo: apples, roses, pistachio. But then I started falling out of love with flavored greens in general, so I put off trying it.

The good news is that the green tea base actually works fine for me. It’s not that super low quality sencha that so many flavored greens seem to be, and it tastes ok. Not great, but ok. The bad news is that the flavoring tastes like candy. For me, not even green apple candy (which I do love), just generically fruity candy that’s really fakey. I didn’t get any rose from this, surprisingly. Toward the end, once it was cool I would occasionally get a hint of pistachio, but it was far from prevalent. Overall disappointing; I will of course try a cold brew of this one, which I suspect will bring out the rose at least.

Agreed. I wanted to like this one but it was fakey-fakey.
