Teas’ Tea New York Green & Red Apple Black Tea


Apple-fla­voured teas have fea­tured prom­in­ently in my col­lec­tion of teas for the past five or so years. Yet, they all man­age to taste some­what dif­fer­ent from each oth­er, even if only slightly. Teas’ Tea New York Green & Red Apple Black Tea is one of the earli­er apple-fla­voured teas in my col­lec­tion.

This tea gives the refresh­ing aroma and fla­vour of fresh apples when brewed for the one minute as sug­ges­ted. It’s a very clean fla­vour with a good bal­ance between the tea and apple fla­vour. The apple fla­vour lingers as an after­taste with only a slight astrin­gency from the black tea. While the label describes the tea as a mix of green and red apple, it’s not some­thing I can dis­tin­guish, assum­ing green apples mean sour notes and red apples mean sweet notes. Overall, it’s a fresh and bal­anced tea that tastes like an unsweetened ver­sion of the same tea that comes bottled in vend­ing machines in Japan.
