I’ve paired a nice Chinese Keemun with freeze-dried granny smith and red delicious apples, cinnamon chips and organic flavors, including some brown sugar and other yumminess that goes in an apple pie. I think this one is going to be really popular, so don’t drag your feet about getting yours.

When I opened the pouch of this Apple Pie Keemun from 52Teas, I was greeted with the delicious aroma of apple pie! A strong cinnamon note with lingering apple notes. Mmm! I started to get very excited over the prospect of tasting apple pie in a tea!
This is really quite tasty. When I first read the announcement about this flavor, I thought … “Oh … that sounds amazing. Apple Pie and Keemun tea.” The body of the Keemun is rich and full, and it offers a nice platform for the flavors of apple and cinnamon.
The Keemun has a slightly smoky note to it. This smokiness gives the cup a “fresh baked, home made” sort of goodness which is further enhanced by the buttery, pastry like flavors that I’m tasting. The natural fruit notes of the Keemun elevate the flavor of the apple. And the earthiness of the Keemun compliment the cinnamon.
A really good, palate-pleasing combination of flavors. It all works together very well!
