This is fairly mild, good but nothing to write home about. Some might prefer to add the sweetener of their choice but it is sweet enough for me.

Day 20 of the DavidsTea herbal advent calendar. I liked this one a lot! It tastes like hot apple juice, in a good way. I did want it to have cinnamon, because I personally am a big fan of cinnamon (no really, when I order ice cream I ask them to put on an amount of cinnamon that they think is too much, and then add a little more on top of that). I added some cinnamon chips to the leaf when brewing up the last cup, and that made a difference – it gave the cup a gentle kick and some depth that it had been missing before.

This is a terrible, terrible tea. I can usually pound through a mediocre or bad tea, but I ended up tossing the half of this mug. Thankfully it was just a sample. The apple is candy like, and the aftertaste is horrific. Bitter and chemical.

DAVIDsTEA Advent Calendar 2021 – Day 3

So this smells really good. But that’s pretty much where the good things end ha ha.

It tastes like a green apple Jolly Rancher, and there’s a weirdly musty and bitter aftertaste. Not sure if that’s the blackberry leaf or the apple pomace? I get a hint of creaminess I suppose, but mostly it’s apple candy.

Nope, can’t finish it. A shame, as I love apple cider… :(

Real apple cider is my favorite part of fall. Unfortunately, it’s easy to get the flavor wrong – and this one was very wrong.

It didn’t have a strong flavor overall while drinking. Both the spices and apple were detectable but weak. The artificial sweetness lingered, and the aftertaste was a manufactured apple candy made with sugar substitutes. I wanted to give it an honest try, but I poured it out before I could get through half the cup.

#tiffanys2021sipdown Tea #23

Fri Jan 22…2nd tea of the day was last of a cute tin and 1 sample pack of this tea in hot water and apple pie oat milk creamer as a latte. Another combination not a fan of but trying to be creative to use what I have around.

Apple cider is a herbal blend featuring apple, sweet blackberry leaves, artificial vanilla, and cream flavorings. Given the ingredients it no surprise that this drink is pretty sweet by nature. The delicate creaminess in the aftertaste is what I find quite surprising. I don’t remember classic warm apple cider ever being creamy, but rather slightly spicy with an overwhelming apple flavor one may expect given the name. However, it is this creamy aftertaste that makes this tea so enjoyable for me. I also think that the creamy notes of vanilla are what make the scent of this tea so delicate and sweet, making it an aroma that draws me in sip after sip.

Very, very strong apple taste. Was not very strong, used 2 scoops and steeped longer than usual to get a strong enough taste.

Okay, so I gave this one a try twice before I reviewed it since I didn’t like it at all the first time. But I am still not liking it. To me it tastes a little artificial and the aftertaste is not very good. It’s drinkable but I’m not really enjoying it… more so just hydration. I do love apple cider so I was surprised I didn’t like this one! I got it in the advent calendar and in two of the gift sets, so I’ve got a lot more to go through sadly :( I’ll try steeping it for a short time next time.
