From LuxBerry Tea

Ever wonder where the upside down tart came from? Legend has it that it was invented in the 1800’s about 100 miles outside of Paris at the Hotel Tatin, owned by the Tatin sisters. According to the story, Stephanie Tatin, the one who did most of the cooking, stumbled across the dessert while trying to make a traditional apple pie. Stephanie accidentally cooked the apples and butter too long and hastily decided to throw the pastry on top of the pie and cook it in the oven. After the surprisingly warm response by her guests to the accidental masterpiece, it became a staple on the menu. This tea is our tribute to the warm apple tarte tatin with delicious apples, raisins and spices you’re sure to love it!

Ingredients: Black tea Assam, apple bits, raisins, cinnamon, almond flakes, cloves, flavor, safflowers.

Wow this is actually pretty fabulous. It reminds me of having desert and coffee( or some dark rich bitter tea )all at once and would probably be fabulous with cream ( something I never add to tea ).

The dry leaf smells of cinnamon and cloves and raisins and is scattered with sliced almonds, raisins, and pieces of dried apple. After 2.5 minutes it brews up to a nice fragrant copper coloured brew that smells a bit like apple crisp taken right out of the oven. It tastes of a buttery, spicy, apple pastry with the flavour sweetened and deepened by the raisins and with the cinnamon and cloves balanced nicely. The tea underneath is a nice slightly bitter Assam that has a hint of biscuit and cocoa with a medium mouth feel and a light astringency that helps to bring a sense of pie crust to the blend. The tea also has a nice dose of caffeine. All though the flavouring has a sense of the richness of a buttery crust the tea is not creamy. It re-steeps decently well. A touch of sugar really helps to make the fruit pop in this tea. Quite a nice desert tea.

don’t think i’ve ordered or tried tea from that company so i’ll have to look in to it

I’ve tried three teas from them so far and I’ve really enjoyed two of them, the other one I’m still trying to figure out what I think about it. The smallest size they have is 50g but they do offer free shipping in Canada. I think I’m going to try some of their greens next. They have their own web store at
http://www.luxberrytea.com/ but you can also purchase from them on Etsy if you prefer to use that site.

I contacted them and I think they’re willing to sell sample bags of 12.5g for $2.25 each. I’ll be placing an order there eventually – pretty intrigued by some of the flavours!

That’s good to know.

Mmm delicious. Apples, raisins, cinnamon, caramel and nuts. This both smells and tastes like an apple cake with a nice, bold base to support it.

It reminds me a lot of some other tea, maybe DAVIDs Coffee Cake? Not quite right, but the smell in particular really reminds me of something else.

I had it straight but I think it would probably be even better with a dash of sugar to really bring out the cakeness.
