Review: This is a tea that, at least in smell, lives up to its name. You definitely get that nostalgic aroma of toffee apple on a stick, or toffee apple pie, or even apple crumble with toffee sauce. Mmmm…. The scent is lightly spicy and quite pleasant just to have in the room. It immediately brings to mind autumnal evenings with the lights turned low, the wind outside blowing the browning leaves off the trees and scattering them over the streets.
Such a shame that you can hardly taste any of that. It starts out alright – a bit smoky, no doubt from the toffee flavouring – but then it’s quite bland. Happily, it’s not as bitter as normal green tea, but the apple is also subtle – too subtle. We frequently find this is the case with apple teas. Unless it’s done just right, the apple can be watery and flavourless.
What started out so promising turned out to be not bad, but just…not anything. There are much better apple blends on the market. You won’t hate this Twinings offering, but you’d be better off spending the money on something that truly tastes of apple.
Best time of year to drink this: Autumn.
Best time of day to drink this: Evenings.
