Review: Flavoured Apple Tea by Princess Noori & Earl Grey Tea by Akbar

I have admitted to liking this Earl Grey by Akbar as well as the Flavoured Apple Tea. I had been enjoying my first cup of this Earl Grey earlier in the day. I took one tea bag and having let the water come to full boil I poured the water into my cup and let it simmer. I drank the first cup hotly and the tea’s aroma smells wonderfully raw and robust. For some reason I thought to add a bag of the Flavoured Apple to this tea just to find out if I would continue enjoying this tea. I added the boiling water to the tea and left it to steep for several minutes.

Now, I smell more of the apple scented tea and some of the bergamot citrus oil is coming through as well. Tea is darker in color; darken amber and is piping hot. I take a sip and let it roll around and swallowed abruptly since very hot.

I waited a few minutes before taking another sip and this time I am able to enjoy the flavors of apple and bergamot; this tea is smoother and smell wonderful. I would say I am enjoying what is in my cup more because the apple flavoured is so noticeable with this mixture in the tea’s layering.

These two tea bags are malty, creamy and smooth with good heft all around. And there is a muscatel effect to it with the adding of the apple-flavoured tea.
I like this combination as it works for my taste buds.

I like to drink tea less so than when I was aptly reviewing teas. I find that I like less and less of things as I age. I am a somber spirit who prays daily to not be at all. Thank you Steepster for all that you do to enrich tea drinkers.
