Best apple pie i’ve ever had! This is warm, fruity and very well balanced. I did not find the apple to taste artificial (like in some teas) so thats always a big plus. I really enjoyed this and will be sipping this all fall and even into winter.
“And another sipdown! I’m so excited for all the new teas that it’s easy to work on moving some of the old! This one was ok, but not my favourite. (73)” Read full tasting note

“Finishing this…I threw out some less than savory in age/smell teas in the meantime…oh yeah and then found my hot water heater soaked the floor of my pantry. Of course after I get an illicit pet....” Read full tasting note
“The cinnamon/apple aroma from this tea is a fair bit more powerful than that from Hot Toboggan, although I’m not really getting any crust aroma… but the flavour is a different story. Immediately...” Read full tasting note
It’s like going home
This tea will bring you right back to your childhood. Thanks to the spicy aroma of cinnamon, the sweet smell of apples baking in the oven and the fresh green tea blend. Don’t remember that last part? Okay, so we added the green tea. It’s a great way to bring all the nostalgic flavour of mom’s dessert right to your mug. So wherever you go, you’ve got the warm memories…but not the calories. Mom would approve.
Ingredients: Green tea, apple pieces, cinnamon, natural and artificial flavouring.

The day after the first rainshower in a long time and to celebrate the coming of Autumn I felt that one of the best ways was to have a pot of the delectable “Mom’s Apple Pie”. The notes of cinnamon and apples accented in harmony with the green tea just paint the vivid image of a day picking apples in the orchard. Or a day at the Autumn fair spent enjoying the farm’s bountiful harvest. It is the fragrance that makes the most impact for the tea and inspires the heart to go and do some baking in the kitchen with those fresh delicious apples!
So last night I was up late at a friend’s show, and I’m feeling a bit groggy and grumpy having to get up and go to work today. So I turned to something that makes me feel comforted….apple-y, pastryish goodness. I need to remind myself to use a bit more leaf though, because sometimes I find it a bit weak. Its a wonderful apple tea on the whole though.
Yum. So much yum.
And I’m a bit surprised to be saying that, actually.
I smelled this one in store and didn’t care for it much at all. I passed it right by on my way to some other favourites instead.
But when I received a sample in my order the other day, I figured I should give it a go. And hurray that I did!
The aroma of this is very apple-y when brewed, smells almost like hot apple cider, which I think is lovely. Just the right amount of spice, and the green tea does add a dimensionality here as well.
The taste is tart apple with a nice natural sweetness. The tea isn’t lost in all the fruit, and there’s a good balance. I think I’m going to get along very nicely with this little number for the next couple of months!
Okay 2nd of today’s new samples! Well, I cheated. You could taste it for free at David’s tea today. They made it cold and it was good, so I bought some. I don’t have much to say about it, except that it tastes pretty much what it announces; apple pie (or apple sauce, because there’s isn’t any crust taste ahah… okay). No, seriously, it’s good and the taste is not too much, it’s light, but still strong enough to be present. I like it and I’m thinking of buying more next time.
My mom never made apple pie (note: I do not resent this. I’m not a domestic person, either), but the smell of this tea still evokes apple pie nostalgia. (But better than the apple pies of my youth, which were mostly the prepackaged ones from McDonald’s.)
My first sip was very bitter and grassy, but once the tea cooled down a little the apple flavor burst forth and it was AWESOME. Absolutely delicious! Not too subtle but not overpowering, either. I steeped the leaves a second time and it still tasted great. I am a big fan of this tea.
(Sample from silentrequiem. Thanks!)
