Amazon Customer Review : This book not only gives a description of the different types of teas, it tells how they are processed from the same plant to make the different teas and the history of tea from China to India, to Japan, to Europe, to America. There is a whole section on terminology used for herbal teas, how to grow, cultivate, harvest, dry and store them.

Adagio Teas : Candy Apple Flavored Tea Review

A Odd Tasting Caramel Flavored Tea

Summary : This tea is no replacement, sadly, for a caramel covered apple. You can taste the caramel in the tea, although it is a rather odd "caramel flavor." Sadly, the apple flavor of the tea is missing altogether.

Review : One of the greatest snacks of all time, one that is even marginally healthy too, is a caramel covered apple. I mean, who doesn't like apples dipped in caramel? As such, I was rather curious to see how the candy apple tea from Adagio Teas would stack up to the real thing.

Candy Apple Flavored Black Tea Leaves

And since I'm always on the lookout for low calorie snacks, I had rather high hopes for this tea too. Yeah, beat me to death...I know that is a bad thing to do. Still, I have a incurable sweet tooth, so the mere thought of finding a nice, sweet tea that has no calories simply put me in a very positive and euphoric mood.

Here is how Adagio Teas describes this tea on their website : "Premium black tea from Sri Lanka flavored with caramel and apple pieces. A taste reminiscent of the trick-or-treating favorite, auspiciously available for Halloween. You'll think it's scary how delicious this tea is - but it is only available for a limited time, so don't miss it!."

Well, where to begin. Oh...let us start with the teas aroma. Now, the aroma isn't half bad. You can really smell the caramel infusion. However, rather curiously, you can not smell the apple in this tea at all. Still, I did my best to keep an open mind...lack of apple aroma and all.

Sadly, though...the tea once brewed basically tasted exactly like it smelled. You have a relatively strong caramel taste...with no taste of apples at all. And perhaps worse yet, I found the caramel flavor a bit on the "strange side," for lack of a better word. The caramel flavoring in this tea is by no means a substitute for a piece of Brach's caramel candy, that is for sure.

Overall, I was disappointed in this tea...mainly due to any lack of apple taste - despite the rather large chunks of apple that are found in the tea.

Recommendation : No. If you like apple teas, you definitely won't like this one, as there is no apple taste at all. And unless you like any caramel flavoring, in all forms and shapes, I suspect most people wont' care for the caramel taste in this tea either...as the caramel flavor tastes nothing like a caramel candy, let alone a caramel covered apple.
