Another tea from the amazing Doulton. I’m not nuts about rooibos, but I’ve always been hunting for a tea that really nails the apple flavor. I love apples. But I’ve never found a tea that really tastes like apples. So if this delivers, I’m willing to put my rooibos prejudice aside.

The color of the steeped tea actually looks a lot like apple cider. It smells like cinnamon and apples (which is a good sign). Upon sipping, I get cinnamon and spices right away. I also taste the tobacco-esque rooibos right away – not cool. I’m not punched in the face with apple, which is what I was really looking for. The apple is there, but just barely. I’m kind of disappointed. I’d say that this tastes like plain cider, not apple cider. The aftertaste is also lacking any trace of apple.

I do so love apples.

P.S: After 10 months of pounding the pavement, I finally got a job! And as an added bonus, I get to be around books all day!

“but I’ve always been hunting for a tea that really nails the apple flavor” Some people claim chamomile is appley… I don’t get it though. Den’s Tea’s apple sencha is AMAZING… and Zoomdweebie’s has a green apple flavored green tea… if only that was caramel green apple!

Erin

Yes, I have been meaning to try an apple sencha, especially now that I’ve completed my little Den’s introduction to green tea course. I know that you’re not crazy about black tea, but Zoomdweebie’s has a caramel apple flavored black tea (and it’s in stock).

I think I’ll just blend the green apple and a caramel green:)

Erin, if a fruit tisane would work for you, try Turkish Apple by Upton tea. Definitely pure apple taste because that’s all that is in it. It’s not a tea, but it’s really yummy.

Congratulations Erin!!

~lauren.

Great finding a job that appeals and with books! Only other thing that would make it perfect is if you can find some time during the day to drink some tea! Congrats!

P.S. I drink Harney’s Chamomile and the apple taste (imo) is very very vague.

Erin

@Lauren – Check mark! The bookstore is conveniently located near a cafe whose employees frequently come in and give us free samples!

Ewa

Seriously? No one has made a joke about Apple Jacks? (Hint: they do not really taste like apples) Also: Yay job! Yay books!

Erin – free cafe samples? Works for me! Hope it all goes well!

Bio

I have recently been forcibly transplanted from Princeton, New Jersey to Burleson, Texas. I’ve been recovering from culture shock ever since. When I’m not dodging scorpions and pickup trucks, I’m a college student, drummer, lover of music and animals, Harry Potter freak, and a vegetarian. I just got a job at a bookstore, which is the perfect place for somebody like me.
