Samurai Travelling Tea Box – Tea #5

When Shae asked me if there were any teas in her cupboard that I wanted to try, I must have really been craving apple teas because I ended up asking for A LOT of apple blends; apple cinnamon and apple ginger in particular…

I’m glad she added this one in though – it’s a tea bag and without having the chance to sample in this type of format, it’s a tea that I would have likely passed up/ignored. However, I thought the flavour was really nice this afternoon and of the five teas I’ve tried from the box so far it was actually my favourite!

Simple in execution – this is basically a medium to full bodied and slightly astringent black tea coupled with a consistent sweet green apple flavour and a hint of something floral to the undertone. It’s rare to get a green apple tea without any tartness/sourness, but that’s what this tastes like to me and I really appreciated it!

Apple Refresh is a light, nearly floral aromatic experience. This black tea offers a body that blends apple flavor with light astringency when brewed properly.

Nothing about the flavor seems artificial or forced, which is very nice. The apple is very strong on the nose but the body yields this scent to remind you that this is a flavored black tea and not a fruit infusion.

This is a delightful afternoon pick me up or compliment to snacking. I would purchase a box on its own for summertime enjoyment or a very pleasant iced tea.

I oversteeped this so it came out bitter, but the apple flavor is pronounced and unique. It doesn’t taste like apples, more like green apple candy. I don’t really like the flavor.

Hmph. I could’ve sworn I’ve reviewed this one … because I know y’all are impatiently waiting for my official pronouncement before you decide whether to imbibe or not.

Do. It’s quite pleasant. Subtle Granny Smith apple peel, but neither unpleasantly bitter nor painfully tart. Perfect on a scratchy throat induced by heat wave + inconsistent AC at work. I’ve been either sweltering or shivering for two solid weeks.

This was a nice tea. Very simple, but still nice.

The apple aroma changed a lot from dry to wet, going through stages of bitter granny smith apple to sour sherbet to sweet apple laces. The taste was a bit of a mix of them all.

I appreciated how full the black tea base is. I thought a rich tea base might clash with the vibrant, sweet and sour apple, but actually it works really well. A lighter black tea or green tea would have let the sourness take control of the blend. It’s balanced well.

Not much else to say about this tea, other than it’s not refreshing in the slightest. I’d rename it “Apple Boost”.

I’ll finish the little box I’ve got of this tea in the early afternoons. I’ve been carefully cutting the wrappers to save them for Martin, storing them in an envelope that probably won’t be big enough by the time I’m finished! It’s highly satisfying seeing my tea bag wrappers cut perfectly and left whole – not sure why. I’ve always been a bit like that. I like order and symmetry and organisation and keeping careful records. I’ve been known to create a spreadsheet organiser just for fun.

Izzy, thank you for cutting them carefully. I like them cut perfectly more too!

I’ve been looking for an apple-flavored black tea ever since Adagio discontinued theirs. That’s harder than it sounds, since there are so many apple cinnamon teas and very few that are just apple.

This makes for a decent substitute. While it’s bland when hot, after it’s cooled a little it’s good and strong and appley. Planning on trying it iced next.
