Frank has been at it again. This is a tea I picked up a while back but the flavor remains fresh. A Green Apple green tea from 52teas has made this a great day!

As a child one of my favorite flavors of candy (re: jolly ranchers & such) was always sour apple. There’s just something about the combination of sour, sweet and pucker I can’t keep myself away from.
This pretty blend of Chinese sencha and sizable apple chunks looks a bit like thick blades of grass and smells like a sour apple candy with a bit of vegetal pucker thrown in for good measure..
The liquor brews to a nice light yellow and provides a vegetal aroma with hints of steamed bok choy and roasted leeks amongst overtones of apple sweetness.
Green Apple Green Tea brews a smooth flavor set. While there is some trace of apple sweetness, the pucker I was expecting wasn’t there. It’s not bad though. The apple flavor helps to balance the vegetal astringency and grassy tail of this brew.
I recommend this blend for fans of fruit teas, lilghter Chinese green teas such as Lung Ching as well as fans of Rooibos.
