Leaf Type: Green
Where to Buy: Souvia Tea
Green tea with a touch of cinnamon and apple makes this a satisfying cup. A great choice over ice in the summer too!.
Ingredients: green tea, apple bits, cinnamon, flavoring
This is a really delicious apple tea. I like that it has a strong apple flavor, but also a pleasant note of cinnamon that nicely accents the apple without overpowering it.
The green tea base is a smooth, rich tasting tea. The long spears of green tea (that sort of resemble blades of cut grass!) make me think that this is probably a Sencha tea, and the sweet, faint vegetative flavor of the tea further confirm this for me. The green tea flavor is not particularly strong in this blend, but it is at an agreeable level that is neither too weak nor is it overpowering or too grassy. It’s quite nice.
Both the apple and cinnamon flavors are strong here, but they don’t seem to be competing with one another. It is a pleasant synergy between the two distinct flavors. The cinnamon does have a nice warmth to it, and while I wouldn’t consider it spicy or hot, it certainly isn’t one of those soft, sweet cinnamon tastes either. It makes for a very nice autumnal tasting tea.
I found this to be incredibly warming on this cold evening. As apple flavored green teas are among my favorites to serve as iced tea, I suspect this one would make a very good iced tea too. It doesn’t need additional sweetener, but, a small drizzle of agave nectar or honey is quite nice in this.
This is my first experience with a tea from Souvia, and I am very pleased with it!
