80 degrees, three minutes steep. The beau made this one for us (after accidentally steeping Teavivre’s Keemun Hao Ya for 20 minutes, hah!) so I didn’t get to smell it beforehand. His sense of panic when he oversteeped the keemun was hilarious. I had to point out that there is plenty of other tea in our house if he wants some.

The steeped aroma reminds me of sweetened boiled apples – like homemade applesauce with no cinnamon and too much sugar. Actually, really appealing. I don’t tend to like green tea and I have been on the hunt for the perfect apple tea for two years. Do we have a contender?

First sips are light on flavour – no green tea, but there is something appley. Tastes more like green apple jelly bellies than applesauce though. Though I LOVE Jelly Bellies, that means the flavour is coming aross as artificial to me. Good, but artificial.

As I keep drinking, I get a bit of the bubblegum flavour I tend to get from DT’s newer flavoured blends. It does happen to taste exactly like a green apple jelly belly though! Won’t have any trouble finishing the sample I purchased, but I don’t anticipate a rebuy. I might like to see a bit of sour apple in there somewhere to cut the artificial sweetness. Yummy, but too standard. If I were just starting out in tea, I would probably fall for this, but I’ve been around the tea block too many times. : )

First let me say I like this much more than I did Mom’s Apple Pie. That one just tasted like apple juice to me. I love apples so I’m always excited when Davids tries another apple flavour, even if the ingredients scare me like this one did. I’m not a fan of pistachios or florals so I definitely greeted the tea with trepidation.

I was glad that I didn’t taste any floral notes. But I do wonder if that’s because the tea is almost all nuts and apple pieces. I don’t know if I even had a single leaf in my cup.

The flavour itself was light with definite apple notes. It wasn’t my favourite apple tea, but it didn’t suck. It isn’t a restock for me, which is sad since I’m almost out of my Baked Apple. I’ll hold out hope that it returns from the dead!

Well this is the final free sample I got from Davids Tea. I have to say I really love it. You can taste the apples and the pistachio nuts in the brew. I feel like it would be wonderful to eat.

This tea is…painfully refreshing. It’s just floral enough to just be really…refreshing. Maybe I need to try more rose teas. I really really like this. I don’t think we’ll be getting a tin, but I definitely plan to get a bit more. Iced this is lovely, but I don’t think I’d like it hot.

Free sample, hurray!
The aroma on this is beautiful. If I could wear this as a perfume or as a bath and body product, I would. It’s appley and rosey all at once; very pretty.
As for the taste, it’s okay. I taste no tea in this, which is fine because I don’t usually love green tea anyways. What I do taste is a sweet, slightly floral apple. They did the rose nicely here, it doesn’t taste like a bath bomb. It’s more like apple slices that were soaked in sugared rose water. I would never guess there was pistachio in here, I can’t detect it at all even though there was a nut in my sample.
I’m drinking it hot because, well, I felt like hot tea. I can see this being absolutely wonderful iced too though.
It’s a very easy to drink tea. There’s not a ton of flavour, but what there is is pleasant. The scent is very uplifting as well.
I don’t know if I would buy a whole 50g bag of this, but if I could buy a smaller quantity to keep on hand I would.

I agree, the aroma with this one is great. I didn’t much like the tea itself if I recall correctly, however.

Ok, first things first. I really like when persian kings and tea come together (remember my excitement over ‘Iskandar’ by Mariage Frères?) so this one made me smile. But wait, there’s no peach in it? Nope, no peach. They’re referring to apples infused in rose water this time. Just as Alexander requested. Once again, I smile.

One sip, and my eyes glisten. I automatically fall in love.

Just like biting into a ripe red delicious laced with rose water.
Add the creaminess of pistachios and a beautiful green tea base.
I am blown away! I could drink this forever!

Mmmm, after reading this, I need to visit David sooner than I should! My wallet says NO! but heck, I never listen to it…

Mélissa

Oh, dear you’re not the only one! Maybe just try a cup of it? I need to find out if it’s just me or… this is the best flavored green I’ve had in a looong time.

Got this sample from Stephanie thanks!

So the first thing I noticed as I measured out a cups worth and tossed it in my infuser was…holy crap this mix has whole pistachios! I then reached into my ingenuiTEA and snatched out one and ate it…mmmmmm!

That done, I proceeded to smell it. I get earthy and spice. Hmmm that’s different.

Ok, taste is a bit of a letdown. I can taste some spice and maybe a HINT of apple but it lacks flavor. A little bitterness to it also from the green tea. Not so appealing. I may stick with just eating the dry ingredients out of this one :)

Also from the traveling tea box.

I feel the need to dry all DT teas when presented with the opportunity to do so.
This one smells like a hodge-podge of scents.

The taste of it is way too floral like for my taste buds. Ick!

Ellyn

I feel the same way about david’s tea….when it is presented I feel the need to try!

We heard back last night. . . No Sphynx kitty for us yet. :(
Drowning my sorrows in a cup of persian apple. Normally I’m not a huge fan of fruit teas. For some reason, I love this. It’s sweet and a little tarte. I like to drink it bare and I think it would make a great iced tea as well.

Thank you for allowing me to try this one, Dinosara! My favorite apple teas have a green base, since they usually taste like an apple pastry &/or dumpling with the butteriness of the green tea. The ingredients just seem perfect together. Pistachios, almonds, roses, apple. I really love nutty teas. Opening the bag, the apple is most noticeable and it is a very nice refreshing, crisp, apple scent, almost a bit too much like the Jolly Rancher. The flavor after letting the water cool a while and steep for two minutes is also refreshing. The apple might not be entirely authentic, but there are some gross fake apple teas out there. This one tastes like a fresh green apple. There are slight notes of the pistachio and the rose, but I really wish there was more flavor to those. Really, the great apple flavor with the buttery sencha is so nice anyway, the rest is just bonus.
