From 52teas

I’ve already made a couple of apple teas this fall, but since I had a few more freeze-dried apples in the studio, I figured that meant I needed to make at least one more tea. Plus – I’ve only made one other maple-y goodness tea this season & I can always go for a little more maple!

With this blend, I started with organic Chinese Sencha tea – the light, soft & creamy taste & texture of Chinese Sencha would work nicely with the sweet flavors that are going on with this tea. Then I added maple essence as well as some maple cotton candy. The maple cotton candy that I use is made from real, organic maple sugar & what I like about adding the maple cotton candy to my tea blends is how the cotton candy ends up crystalizing as the tea cures. What remains is tiny little crumbles of maple sugar, which adds not only some sweetness to the cup but an authentic, deliciously maple note as well. It really amplifies the maple! Then I added a bunch of apples – you’ll find both freeze-dried & air-dried apples in this blend. I used both Fuji & Granny Smith apples for a nicely round, sweet yet tart apple flavor. Finally, I added a touch of essence – my own “blondie” essence recipe!

The flavor of this tea is so nice! A beautiful apple note with a delectable maple note. Notes of a brown sugar, cake-y like taste melds with the apple & maple so nicely – dessert in a teacup! The sweet flavor of Chinese Sencha lingers in the background. When drinking this without additions, you get more apple & maple. After adding just a teensy bit of sugar (less than ½ a teaspoon) I find that the blondie notes pop a little more.

Not only tasty, it’s also organic, vegan, gluten-free, allergen-free & all natural!

organic ingredients: green tea, apples, maple cotton candy (cane sugar & maple sugar) & natural flavors

to brew: make sure you shake this blend well to make sure you’re getting some of those tiny little maple sugar shards in your measurement! Use 3g of tea to 12oz of very hot water (175°F) & steep for 2 minutes. Strain & allow to cool for at least 5 minutes. Enjoy!

Homemade Advent Exchange Tea #14

I’m behind but will eventually get all of my tasting notes uploaded! (they are written in a notebook)

This has a lovely strong maple scent. The brew is flavourful and the green tea comes through a lot. There are vegetal green notes and some maple. I get a hint of dried apple, as well. I would have liked a bit more vanilla and cakey/buttery flavour or maybe some apple butter/caramelized sugar notes. If I didn’t know any different, I would think this was just a maple apple green tea.

Ashmanra’s Sipdown Challenge | December 2023 | National Cookie Day: Drink a cookie-flavored tea!

My recent Simpson & Vail order added quite a few cookie-inspired teas to my stash, but none of them were ready for a sipdown. So instead I’m going cookie-adjacent with this blondie-inspired tea! I brewed up a nice personal pot using the remaining leaves and am enjoying it with some Biscoff cookies as an afternoon snack.

I still really love this one. It’s such a comforting, cozy cuppa. Today I’m tasting a bit of woodiness I didn’t notice in previous cups, which is a nice counterbalance to the sweet maple and apple notes. Just such a perfect autumnal tea. <3

Nice! Mine wasn’t an actual sipdown. I am having to dig around to find things that are even close so I can get a few sipdowns in this month but I know I won’t make my goal for the year. I am closer and have cleared some of my oldest teas so that is satisfying!

It’s great to say goodbye to some of those old ones!

I randomly spotted this packet under my old desk at work six months after I’d moved to my own office – I’m so glad no one decided to throw it away! The maple is a bit woody (in a good way). That’s the main flavor I taste…and perhaps some apple. The green base is perfect for this tea. I added some milk, which goes really well with the maple. This has to be one of the best green teas I’ve had – the maple is so authentic and delicious!

XD oh my goodness! The things that tea must have been thinking. Glad it was still good!

Me too! It would have been sad to miss this one!

I remembered Kittenna’s tasting note about this getting bitter with over steeping so I kept my steep time short as I made this – it was something that I sipped on while cooking supper a few nights ago and it really hit the spot! Overall it was nice and medium bodied, and the two main notes of maple and apple both came through very clearly in a super complimentary way. It felt like such a harmonious balance of a more fresh, sweet summer apple and the more cozy and decadent autumnal kind of baked apple/apple pastry vibe but with really yummy maple syrup drizzle.

In the past I’ve found 52Teas’ maple syrup flavouring to lean a little too fruity, but combining it with something like apple is the perfect way to sort of lean into that quality in a way where it just helps marry the flavours even further. Definitely pleasantly surprised by this one!

Ugh, oversteeped significantly so it was bitter but I think I liked what I was tasting otherwise – sweet and appley. Will have to review again later.
