Apple Custard | 24 Days of Tea: Day 20

Apple Custard - 24 Days of Tea Day 20We hope you’re sitting down. Because we’re about to make a pretty bold claim. This might just be the most decadently creamy blend we’ve ever tasted. Seriously. It’s almost crazy how much it tastes like a warm and comforting custard or pudding. It blends sweet apples, golden raisins and honey-scented chamomile with a rich and creamy hint of vanilla. Go ahead, indulge. With this in your cupboard, who needs dessert?

The welcoming aroma of this tea is heavily dominated by candied apples with a strong honey presence and a touch of warming spices including cinnamon. Vanilla notes add a lovely sweet creaminess to the blend while a bit of raisin balances it out. The chamomile is barely noticeable under the heady honey.


Slightly more subdued than the rich aroma, the flavour of Apple Custard is still one of strong candied fruits and a powerful honey presence. More to the raisin side than the apple, the opposite of the aroma, it is nicely balanced between sweet and slightly tart with great warming spice notes. A lingering sweet raisin flavour brings the vanilla more to the foreground and the honey is strong throughout. The flavour of the chamomile is very subtle but provides a great backbone for the decadent and sweet flavours.
