Well hot, this was really good. I mean, for a few minutes, I thought it was THE apple tea. So yummy!! but then it errrr, cooled down and I lost the vibe. Booooooo!
Cooled down, a strange sort of sweet note emerged, reminding me of beets… like the kind in David’s Forever Nuts. But somehow in this tea it doesn’t work. Heck, FN only “works” for me some of the time, and if I recall correctly, and similarly, not so much when cool. So boo again.
I think this will be a tumbler tea. Because it stays hot in there for ages and in this case, I’m more than ok with that!


Oh yeah, come to think of it, I only really like FN when it’s really hot. Thank goodness for tumblers!


Right?! What would we do without them lol

Drank this last night but was too busy cursing studying to write a note. This was goooood, I wasn’t sure I’d like this because the caramel candy apple tea gave me a weird note from the apple peels. Della Terra did send me a new sample of that but I have no idea where it is :( Tea problems.

Anyway this does taste very much like apple pie. This one has that pie crust flavor that Grandma’s Pumpkin Pie doesn’t have. The almond does it I guess? I didn’t even realize this had almond in it until now. Definitely doesn’t taste like almond.

The apple and cinnamon definitely tastes a lot like the apples in pie, I still have a piece of pie from Thanksgiving that I made. My fridge is always freezing because I don’t understand it, so I hope it’s still good thanks to that…this tea made me want it later today. It tastes exactly like it, with the nice addition of black tea. The base tea isn’t too strong though, so it almost is reminiscent of apple cider too.

I wish I hadn’t gotten just a try me size of this now!

For an apple tea (I have a well established general loathing for fresh apple tartness in tea) this is decent/good, evokes baked pie well, not just the standard fruit and sugar elements. A touch tart and bitter, only at the end of the sip, but that could be remedied with a shorter steep time I’m sure (and also isn’t amiss as part of a true-apple-pie flavor). I wish I could say more but this was yet another late last night tea. My tea schedule of late works a treat for my personal utility but is a blight for accurate tasting notes the next day, alas.

Big thanks to Momo for this glorious sample of Classic Apple Pie from Della Terra Teas!!! This sample came at the perfect time. I am so stressed out from wedding stuff!!!! I went to try on my wedding dress today. It was supposed to be 100% done, no more alterations, pack it up and let’s go get married! Instead, I put it on and it’s soooo tight on my back. Uncomfortably tight. Like my back is squishing out over the dress in a very non-pretty way. And it’s looser in the waist…wtf happened?!

I went for lunch for 2 hours while they did some more alterations: letting out the back and taking in the waist. I mean, does anyone else find that weird? How could my back get bigger while my waist gets smaller? I’ve been working out like a fiend, so the only thing I can think of is that my back muscles must be larger. I mean, they really don’t look larger and I still can’t do a single pull up despite all my efforts. I don’t know. I called my mom freaking out and she just laughed because apparently she had the exact same thing happen to her a week before she married my dad. They had to let out the top of her dress and take it in at the waist. So, I guess like mother like daughter. It’s still bizarre though.

Anyway, I tried on the dress two hours later and it’s definitely better. I was so stressed though that I don’t think I really looked at myself. I just feel like there’s still so many things I would change about the dress, but we’re out of time. Honestly, I probably won’t feel good about it until it’s my wedding day and the dress fits and I’m married and it’s all over.

Okay, that was a really long rant. ON TO THE TEA!!!

This was exactly what I needed right now. Apple pie is total comfort food. It’s one of my favorite foods and I wait for it every year (we usually have it at either Thanksgiving or Christmas, both if I get lucky). I added Truvia and a splash of unsweetened almond milk. YUM! This tea is amazing! The black base is fairly quiet and non-descript. It’s the perfect backdrop for the other flavors I think. The spices are low key and not in-your-face or overdone. There’s a sweetness like cinnamon filling drizzled with caramel sauce. And then there’s the apple of course. Juicy, naturally sweet apple. Mmmm! This is delicious! Oh man, I’m going to go make another cup right away. There’s no way one cup is enough. Thank goodness for this tea and thank goodness for Momo!!! You’re a lifesaver!

Oh, I feel for you. I was a wedding planner for 4+ years and I’m sure all the wedding craziness is setting in right about now. Try to relax and just enjoy the day! As long as you end up married the wedding will be a success. :)


You’re so welcome! I’m sorry it took so long, I was losing my mind last week, but it definitely sounds like they got there at the perfect time!

Woaaahhhhhh this one’s bitter/astringent. I taste pie flavours, and apple, but this is definitely overleafed/oversteeped. I don’t think I’ll be particularly keen on it even when steeped properly though… It does taste like apple pie, but in retrospect, I’m not sure I want a tea that tastes like apple pie! Also, I’m getting some play-doughy flavours that are not so pleasant (strange, I usually only get them in flavoured whites).

Ah well. I’ll give it another shot later!

The name doesn’t lie! This is definitely apple pie! A nice sweet apple, doesn’t taste artificial at all, with some cinnamon. I think Della Terra uses different apple flavorings for their apple teas. This is the one I like better, that I think is also in the apple cinnamon yogurt rooibos that I love. The black tea base is perfect for these flavors, not too strong. I think there is also a slight bakey pastry flavor (maybe from the almonds?) but I might be imagining that, since the apple pie filling portion of this tea is so spot on! Another win for Della Terra!

Back log from Friday.

I over steeped this a bit.

Although I got a great apple taste, there was a bunch of astringency, and not really any pie taste.

Must try again!

Of the three apple flavored teas that I purchased from Della Terra recently, I think that this is my favorite. I haven’t logged the Spiced Caramel Apple yet because when I had it, I had just finished eating mac and cheese sprinkled with cajun seasoning, so my mouth was still feeling the burn and I couldn’t tell what part of the spice was from the tea. :p I don’t know when/if I will get around to trying that one again as Caramel in tea hasn’t been a favorite yet, but anyhow. . .back to the tea of this post:

Can’t go wrong with “classics” Smells and tastes like apple, not excessively artificial and no detectable flavored-tea aftertaste. Odd enough, I don’t actually like Apple pie. In fact, I don’t like any fruit pies. The texture of soggy extra-sweetened fruits covered in sticky fruit residue always grosses me out. I have a huuuuge texture issue with foods. I love the smell of apple pies baking and as far as slimy fruit goes, apples are more tolerable than berries. Well, so, my point is, this tea is a rare case of liking the tea better than the food it imitates. In fact, I think this would have to be the first case. As much as I love the attempt of teas imitating desserts, they never compare to the real thing in any way other than for health benefits :)

You know what? I don’t love this tea. But that’s ok because I absolutely ADORE a bunch of Della Terra’s other teas. I just had to try this one. I brought it to work with me today to throw into a swap and decided to make a cup and I’m deciding I’d rather just swap it.


im following you Jackie :)

Omnomonom. This is my favorite Della Terra tea and the one that I have been waiting for as far as apple teas are concerned. Finished up my packet today, and will look at getting a larger pouch in the future. I like it best with some sweetener and milk. It makes a heavenly latte.
