Where we come from, apple picking season is a huge deal. What do you do with an abundance of apples (and a sweet tooth)? You make a mountain of candied apples. Rediscover an amusement park favourite with a sweet apple tea featuring a touch of cinnamon over a black tea base—the perfect treat.

What makes it great

The rich black tea base provides the perfect canvas for this blend.

A pinch of cinnamon perks up the light caramel flavour.

The crisp and slightly tart apple flavour contrasts the caramel-ness.

I wanted to buy a black tea, but also wanted a change from the Earl Grey flavours I usually go for. I was hesitant to order this because it seemed like an odd combination of ingredients, but it really works! With no added sweetener, it has just the right amount of sweetness for me, and none of the bitterness you sometimes get with black teas.

I actually preferred this one with some milk. The apple smelled really artificial and unpleasant, but it turned out pretty decent. I taste a sweet cinnamon along with the artificial, but good enough apple. The black tea doesn’t make much of an impression. To be honest, I think I would drink this one again, but not frequently.

All weak apple, no candy and a little bitter. I wanted to like it… still haven’t found an apple tea i enjoy.


For green tea with apple, I enjoyed Little Women from Harney.

I have not had a tea that I was so appalled by in ages. When I opened the bag I was hit by the smell of acetone. Strong acetone. It came through in the flavor of the tea as well. Now that I have that association with it I can’t taste past it or pay any attention to the other flavors. Cinnamon is present in the finish after the acetone dissipates.
David’s Tea has a lot of winners with me, this one is the opposite side of the scale.

Indeed! I have a friend who steeped it in a way that she claims taste better, but still not great, so I might try it again.

This is definitely an interesting take on a candy apple. It’s more of a red hot apple. I guess some candy apples have cinnamon in the sugar coating? It’s also very much a green apple. So, if cinnamon covered green apples are your thing, you’ll probably love this tea.


That is interesting. I feel like those flavors would almost be better suited to a caramel apple tea.

Same thoughts as before, it’s a fine apple black but doesn’t match my recollection of a candy apple; too much cinnamon.

This was a preportioned/overwrapped sachet and not the loose leaf version of the tea; I ended up taking some of this format home from the office a few weeks ago just because sometimes it is more convenient to have them around for moments of extreme laziness…

I definitely find the sachet less intense/aromatic than the LLT but, considering that the LLT is kind of a punch of flavour, that can be a good thing too. There’s the same sweet candy style red apple flavour though alongside that warming red hot cinnamon finish. So the flavours are all present, just not the whallop of sweet autumnal coziness that the LLT delivers. It’s just different portioning of tea leaf overall, is all…

If I actually measured the amount of tea I used and didn’t just eyeball it I’m sure I could produce a more gentle cup like this with the LLT too…

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.
