I don’t even know what to say about this, other than I don’t taste apple. I taste rose mostly…. and I’m not crazy about that.

Last one of the fall collection that I bought a small sample of. This one is probably my least favorite, I’m just not a huge fan of floral teas. However, I like it more than I thought I would after I added a touch of honey.
Taste is sweet, floral, with a hint of nuttiness. I don’t get a lot of apple, which is too bad, if anyone can suggest a better apple tea I’d appreciate it. I haven’t found one that compares to an apple tea I have from the UK with apple and mint.
Tea number 3 from my latest DT shipment..
I think this one will take me a few different tastes to determine whether or not I like it. The thing that bothers me most is the fact that the dry leaves smell very medicinal. The aroma of the brew smells similar, just slightly less potent.
Overall, I do get the flavors of the apple, pistachio, and rose, but somehow I’m also getting a taste of cherry too. I might have to try this one cold to see if that makes any improvement.
Do you ever find that your senses fight to be right, and you can be led astray by listening to the wrong one? I remember years ago having a dessert that included an orange coloured mousse – we were trying to figure out what was odd about it. It was orange – it should have been orange or peach, right? We couldn’t place it and we were confused. Then my sister said “It’s cantelope!”, and all was right with the world. We were using our eyes, and totally disregarding our tastebuds.
If found the same thing with this tea. I read the description, and throught “Baklava!”. But it isn’t baklava. Then I smelled it and thought “Old Lady Soap and Powder!”, but that isn’t it either (thankfully!). You know when you are trying to remember something all day, and you just can’t get it, then at 2 a.m. you bolt upright and almost shout aloud “Mickey Mantle” (or whatever it is) – you’ve remembered, but usually at this point I forget why I the information is needed. Midway through my cup of this, I had to all of a sudden text my husband “What is the name of that dessert your grandmother makes with Turkish Delight in it? Some sort of cookie…” Turkish delight – THAT is what this tea tastes like.
Not sure that it is a must have, but (now that I have placed the taste!), it is very good.
Persian Apple is currently on special and I bought lots of it. It’ll take me a while to finish this one off!. It is one of the most delicate teas I’ve ever had, but definitely worth the extra attention!
There is a lovely, kind of green apple taste with a lovely nutty hint, primarily pistachio. There is a slight acidity (not a bad thing though) from the apples.
Again, another gift from my tasting trip through my friend’s shelf. I tried a couple of sips of this, trying my very hardest to remember I don’t like floral notes and I hate pistachios. Even with my most open mind, my reaction to this tea was predictable… Not my thing. Nope. Not at all. It taste faintly of apple (which I love), but more heavily of rose and pistachio, (which I loathe). A gorgeous tea to look at, great to smell, but not in my cup again.
