From Simpson & Vail

Apple and cinnamon goodness with a hint of maple flavor. The aroma is pure lazy Sunday morning. Breakfast on the griddle, hot tea in your hand, your favorite book waiting to be read. The sweet apple and the heady cinnamon flavors dance on your tongue, while the rich maple taste offers the base note in this amber colored cup.

Ingredients: black teas, apple pieces, organic cinnamon pieces and apple cinnamon french toast flavoring.

Brew tea at 212º – steep for 3 minutes.

Samurai Travelling Tea Box – Tea #13

Finished off the single serving that was in the box, and it was very good.

Definitely reminded me of French Toast – the good brioche kind! Sweet with maple and brown sugar notes, the perfect amount of warming cinnamon and a kiss of sweet apple. This is a tea that I would totally want in my cupboard for a decadent fall/autumn type of sweet flavour profile!

From the Samurai TTB.

I completely missed that this one is also on my wishlist so ignore my comment in that last post. The reviews on this tea are insanely good. I was already excited after reading through some of them when I found the package in the tea box. I could smell the fragrant cinnamon before even opening the bag. And thank goodness, it’s not that spicy red hot cinnamon. That’s my least favorite of the bunch.

I used 1.5 teaspoons and steeped according to the website directions. I tried it after adding a spoon of honey and it was good, but then I poured in a bit of Oatly Barista blend for some creaminess (still out of cream) and it’s next level. Wow. I had to stop myself drinking it so fast so I could take some notes before it was gone. I can’t say I tasted french toast exactly, though everyone else seems to so it’s probably something to do with how I steeped it. The apple cinnamon flavor was spot-on though and so delightful. I wish I had taken better notes because this is all vague and uninteresting but now my cup is empty and I can’t nail down the specifics. I’ll just say it lives up to the hype, for sure.

Oh and thanks, tea-sipper, for adding this one too!

This is a tea I snagged a sample from in the Discovery Teabox, so thank you Skysamurai for organizing and all participants for sharing their tea! I’ve been craving apple cinnamon flavors lately, and recently restocked pretty much the one Stash tea I like, Cinnamon Apple Chamomile which I’ve been drinking a lot in the evenings.

This really does smell like an apple cinnamon pastry from the aroma; it has that overly-sweet apple filling smell that I get from those little finger danishes that have the hard sugar on top. The flavor isn’t quite as strong as I’d like, but I only saved 2.5g from the teabox and lately I’ve been brewing my blacks closer to 3g in the morning, but it is still very nice; I’m definitely getting a sweet cinnamon note, and an apple flavor that is more akin to sweet filling than tart, juicy fruit. There is a subtle warm baked bread note coming through from the black tea, as well as malt and spice. Maybe just a very, very subtle smokiness at the back of the tongue as well, in the aftertaste. It is very warm and satisfying and I’m enjoying it very much as my morning cuppa.

Oh this one sounds good!

This one is probably my favorite from Simpson & Vail and I have MANY favorites from S&V.

Mastress Alita

I finished my thermos this morning so fast I had pretty much no tea by the time I got to work!

tea-sipper

Oh no! Teamergency!

AJRimmer

I definitely regret not ordering some more of this when I restocked some of my favorites from them recently. This one is so good.

The first time I tried it Cameron B. sent me some. Ah, I got to try this again. Thank you TeaSipper! Lightly cinnamon, just the right amount. I love Cinnamon but not overly done cinnamon that it masks all the other flavors. This was just right. Freshly baked apple hints, french toast, maple goodness, buttery, bready… And not overly sweet at all. Nice balance. This time I tried it was a splash of heavy cream. Oh my, a delicious breakfast for me today hehe.

Sometimes you have a tea that’s supposed to be whatever flavor, and you would never know if you hadn’t read the name on the tin. This one tastes exactly like french toast. You can taste the apple and cinnamon. It’s so, so good. When I saw a pouch of this in the tea box, I’m pretty sure I Iet out a little maniacal laugh because I was so excited to drink this tea again. My only wish is that they had a decaf version because I would drink it constantly.

Kawaii433

Cameron sent me a sample of this, now I’m really excited to try this. I went through the Lupicia and the B&Bs, now I’m on the S&V.

tea-sipper

….and another fan of Apple Cinnamon French Toast. The maniacal laughs are exactly why I added it to the teabox. :D

AJRimmer

It’s just the best. Thanks so much for sharing! :D

I need to try the Apple Cinnamon Coffeecake version, just to compare… For science!

For once, I find myself agreeing with all the rave reviews! This really does give me apple, cinnamon, and that custard-ness of French toast. I made a huge tumbler to get me through a meeting, and I was sad when I guzzled it all down and was left with nothing. I do overleaf it pretty heavily, as I tend to overleaf most teas anyway but I also agree with other reviewers that S&V teas tend to require it. BUT I DON’T CARE! I’LL GO A TSP PER OZ OF WATER IF I NEED TO, IT WAS THAT YUMMY! Ahem.

I tend to shy away from most blends with cinnamon in them, as that’s a flavor that tends to overwhelm. But this one smelled delicious, so I decided to give it a try. And I wasn’t disappointed! There’s a good mix of maple, cinnamon, and apple flavor without any one taking over. A nice morning treat!

I don’t love apple or cinammon in tea, but this one really gets it right, in my opinion!

tea-sipper

Yep, this is a cupboard essential for me now. I think I’ve had this tea the most in the last couple of months.

Okay, now this is a tasty tea!

It definitely tastes just like french toast mixed with apple pie. There’s a lovely buttery maple syrup flavor. The cinnamon makes it lean toward french toast, but really it could be pancakes or waffles as well. The apple is more of a cooked apple flavor, like apple pie filling.

My only possible complaint about this tea is that it’s a bit weak, even though I used a lot of leaf. Next time I may try using boiling water (as instructed) to see if that brings out any more of the base tea’s flavor.

I would love to see a version of this tea with blueberry (and maybe some lemon) instead of the apple cinnamon, like blueberry pancakes! ❤

Simpson & Vail can be kind of hit or miss for me. Their shipping charges are high and their packaging is often not airtight. However, there are definitely some gems mixed into their offerings. (Try the hazelnut coffee!)

This is definitely one of those gems. It tastes like a mix between spiced apple cider, French toast, and pecan pie. Heavy on the delicious syrup and pecan. I know that sounds like a lot going on, which it is, but it’s more like a symphony than a cacophony. It’s perfect for those mornings when I’m grumpy about having to adult. Cheers me up and gives the morning at least one pleasant thing to enjoy. Get you some.

Additional notes: Alright, I could drink this one every day. And I probably have never said that before for any tea. It’s my new favorite tea. If you thought S&V’s Apple Cinnamon Coffeecake was delicious, this one is even MORE delicious. I just got an e-mail today from S&V that a few of their caramel and apple teas are 15% off if anyone is interested: https://www.svtea.com/FEATURED-PRODUCTS/products/144/ Raising the rating from a 97.

Also, you know it’s autumn when five of the last ten of my tasting notes were for apple or pumpkin teas.

Tabby

I’ve bought this 3 times now, haha. It’s glorious.

tea-sipper

YES it is glorious :D

Cameron B.

Agreed, this tea definitely delivers on its name. It was a little bit on the weak side for me, but next time I’ll use more leaf. ;)

tea-sipper

I love the result with a teaspoon and a half.

evol-ving

And on to my wishlist it goes—if I ever allow myself to buy more tea :)
