Recent Tasting Notes
I decided to buy a sampler of Karel Capek teas because I won’t come across them. This was the first one I drank because I wanted something fruity. I must say that it was much better than I had thought it would taste. The apple taste is quite evident but the black tea base wasn’t the best of quality so it was a bit rough on the bitter side. I ended up drinking the whole cup so that says something right?
Karel Capek is a Japanese tea shop famous for flavoured tea in cute tins. There are real apple pieces in the tea but it’s heavily scented with artificial apple flavouring! When I say artificial I am serious – when I opened the bag of tea, I was greeted by a smell that reminded me of my fruit-flavour toothpaste in childhood! :0 Fortunately, the taste is more natural than its smell… the mellow sweetness makes it a pretty nice dessert tea after all.
