One of the many Tea Moments blends that I have had for a while but never got around to trying..until now that is. My husband chose this one at random from my cupboard which is good for him because he loves apple tea.

The blend doesn’t look special in terms of quality but it was only a cheap tea, something I thought was worth trying for an every day tea. The Sencha is dark green with a fair amount of twigs while the chamomile is completely dry and almost brown in colour. As for the apple they are small pieces that are very dry and a little rubbery. it smells like grassy cinnamon which is actually quite nice.

Once steeped the tea is orange in colour with a sweet and spicy apple aroma.

Flavour is light and quite refreshing with sweet apple and spicy cinnamon tones but also a kind of clove coolness. Also picking up a little bit of a floral mist.

Overall it’s alright and I will experiment with stronger steepings and also cold steeping. For now it’s drinkable but unfortunately this blend is nothing special.

Boo! I lost my note.

Anyway, this is a nice mild sencha that is strong in chamomile, but also has a subtle blend of apple cinnamon in the background. I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy this, but I’m happy I tried it!

Thanks KittyLovesTea!

This is ok – I definitely taste apple and cinnamon, but it takes too much leaf to pack the kind of punch I prefer cinnamon teas to have. It is light, which can be good, depending on preference.

Queued post, written May 26th 2014

Another tea from a EU TTB. I think this one was the first round, though. In fact I’m nearly certain it was.

I’m not super keen on cinnamon in my tea, but I have recently been partial to the Jewelled Apple blend from Tea Palace, so I suspect that’s why I took a sample of this one.

Unfortunately it’s not nearly as good. Although, perhaps it wouldn’t be right to try and compare them given that this is a green base and the other is a black. But the apple in this one isn’t apple-y as much as it’s juicy. And by juicy I don’t mean ‘ooh, what a juicy apple,’ I mean ‘oh, apple juice.’ Which is not the same thing at all and not really what I was looking for.

Further more the base doesn’t really shine through all that apple, adding to the warm apple juice impression.

It’s like slightly mulled apple juice, really. Which, actually, sounds like it might be pretty fantastic, but it’s not very summer-y and not what I was hoping to find in this tea.

It’s pleasant enough, but not what I was hoping for. The juice-aspect makes me think I might try the rest in a cold brew, though. Even though I’ve generally had best luck with herbals that way. This one just might be able to pull that off.
