A Re-imagined VIT!

Some time ago, shortly after I started doing this thing as the Mad Tea Artist, one of my online friends suggested that I create a caramel apple Oolong and he suggested using a roasted Oolong base. I liked the idea but the thing was that Frank had already crafted a Caramel Apple Oolong using a Fujian Oolong. (Click here to read my original review* of that tea.)

So here is a tea that was previously imagined and then later re-imagined based on an inspiration from a tea friend. I started with a charcoal roasted TieGuanYin which is delightfully nutty and sweet. To this, I added a combination of freeze-dried apples: Granny Smith and Fuji (which, interestingly enough, are my two daughter’s favorite apples. Amethyst loves Granny Smith and Lilith loves Fuji.) I added some caramel essence and then – just because I felt that it needed some warmth, I added some cinnamon.

This is a tea that’s deliciously, apple-y sweet but also pleasantly spiced – with a creamy, nutty background of a truly delightful Oolong tea.

ingredients: oolong tea, organic apples, organic cinnamon and organic natural flavors

Today’s cups are redolent of cinnamon, earth, and gentle apple. The apple flavour reminds me of toasted apple chips with woody cinnamon. The roasted oolong provides the earth and the slightest aspect of green in the base. A solid grounding tea with a barely there sweetness. Beautiful blending with inspired choices.

I sipped on this while making a lazy version of tomato egg stir fry. The food was good. This stir fry was not what was expected. It never is. I always expect caramel apple which this tea is not. This tea is more baked cinnamon apples than anything. It is good and dessert-like but whereas caramel apples are more dessert with fruit, baked apples are more fruit with some dessert quality. Subtle difference but it hits you in the cravings…

“Hits you in the cravings” = yes. Nothing like that disappointment!

I would love to find a Caramel apple tea that has a little tart flavor that granny smith apples have. I’ve only found one or two type of candies that mimics a caramel apple like that, and I’ve search high and low for that. I once tried Yogi’s caramel apple and it was disgusting to me. :(

First tea of the day today!

Not sure how much tea drinking I’ll get in today, as it’s both Christmas Eve and my Mom’s birthday so we’re celebrating the holidays this mornings and then later this evening we’ll be going out for dinner and doing birthday things.

This was a nice tea to start the day with though; I got something smooth and medium bodied that was sweet but not overwhelmingly so either! Plus, the overall flavour was richer than last time which automatically made for an improved cup/experience. Of course, I paired this with a nice big handful of actual caramels so I did get quite a bit of sweetness from the candies. But mostly this was just a nice, lightly toasty/roasty sweet red apple flavour with cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, and roasted nut undertone. Juicy tops notes! Very much a “baked apple” kind of flavour over a caramel apple, which I think I actually observed last time I tried this? Still, very enjoyable and a pleasant way to start off my morning today! If I don’t get a lot of tea drinking in today at least I’ll know that the cups I did get in were really good/solid ones!
