1233 Tasting Notes
The smell of this tea is amazing – Apple Pie with even the freaking crust!
Just the smell alone is freaking WOW.
Steeped… ehhhh… one time I had it taste amazing – just like how it smelled – liquid apple pie with crust. The other times I drank it it was just tart apple water. I discovered it works better with a short steeping time, like what is suggested on the label, but it is still a hit and miss.
I still love it though. And my fiance who hates tea (but loves pie) loves smelling it.
Screw Starbucks pumpkin spice latte… this tea is WAY MORE PUMPKINY TASTEY and not expensive Starbucks.
Smells amazing, like pumpkin pie and spices. Tastes great – pumpkiny and spicey. I prefer it straight hot with nothing in it, but it’s pretty amazing steeped strong as a soy latte with some honey. Hot damn, I bought a 100g tin right off the bat, and ordered more online to last me the entire year until it goes onsale again (it better! /shakes fist)
This, so far, is the only DAVIDsTEA I wanted to return after the first taste. Then I tried it 2 more times and felt the same way. I don’t even want to regift it. It’s got that cool hit of bamboo, then tingle of pepper heat… and tart strawberries. The cool and heat and tart was just a bad combination for me.
I’ll try it iced in the summer, months away from now for me to remember this was a “bleck” reaction for me.. maybe that will go better.
From the description of this tea (and a DAVIDsTea newsletter of making it like hot apple cider) the smell of the leaves wasn’t exciting… very light spice smell and apple.
I don’t smell the caramel apple at all. Maybe it’s a bad batch or I got a scoop of all the lightweight bits?
Steeped, I find it to be a mild citrus taste and a bitter after taste. Not spicey or appley. shrug I had high hopes for this one >__<
I’m not sure what orchid tastes like, but I find this tea to taste like an overpowering cherry – but cherry is the last ingredient! With that said, a bit of a disappointment if you want a orchidy /strawberry/raspberry tea as promised and it smells and tastes like cherry. Other than that, it is pretty nice cherry taste…
