Mmmm, this tea looked really fun so I had to snag it during my last order! I love candy apples – especially the crazy ones with cheesecake, cookies, chocolate chunks and marshmallows on them!

DRY: very fun looking! Cubes of caramel and tiny sparkley red candy bits!
STEEPED: interestingly, I smell apple skin. The tea comes out a brown with a bit of cloudyness.

TASTE: Tastes like biting into a real apple (skin and all) with a hint of candy sweetness and caramel. The black tea is very light here.
With sweetener, this tastes more like candy apple and brighter caramel. No tartness or bitterness.

COMMENTS: Very well executed! I’m surprised how natural the apple tastes here. I’m a little torn as I do like this unsweetened, but sweetened it’s totally a candy apple!

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk. I am also a crochet and knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 573 Teas – August 2015.
