A new addition to our flavored tea line and already a huge hit with all of us here! This slightly sweet, scrumptious blend has a lightly toasted flavor with the delicious taste of apples and cinnamon. Sipping this tea reminds me of the Sunday morning breakfast treats of my childhood. Now that I'm all grown up I could have those treats every day of the week; however, I think I'll stick to this tea blend instead. It's full of the sinful tastes of childhood but, with no calories, it suits my adult metabolism!
Ingredients: Black teas, organic cinnamon chips, apple pieces, flavoring and orange blossoms.
Brew tea at 212º - steep for 3 minutes.
Apple Cinnamon Tea Cookies
These cookies are so scrumptious that we ate almost all of them right from the oven!
To add the superb flavor to these cookies, we infused our Apple Cinnamon Coffeecake black dessert tea in butter then strained out the leaves. The butter was left with the most heavenly taste and aroma.
2 sticks (8oz) butter
8 Tbsp Apple Cinnamon Coffeecake Black tea blend
Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add the tea and steep on low heat for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and steep for 5 minutes. Strain the leaves from the butter using a fine strainer or cheesecloth. Some of the butter clings to the tea leaves, so always make sure to use more butter than a recipe calls for when making infused tea butters. I strained the tea butter into a measuring cup to make sure I had enough for my cookies. Once strained, cool the butter so it solidifies.
3/4 cup (6oz) tea butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 egg, plus 1 egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup Apples, chopped small (choose a firm baking apple like granny smith)
Pre-heat the oven to 350 and lightly grease a cookie sheet.
In an electric mixer beat the tea butter and sugars together. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix until creamy.
Stir the flour, salt and soda together. Gradually add to the sugar/butter mixture until incorporated.
Fold in the apples.
Roll the dough into 1 1/4" balls (a rounded teaspoon size) and place on the greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-13 minutes until golden brown.
Cool on the sheet slightly before moving to a wire rack.
Enjoy with your favorite cup of tea!

||Tastes like toasty streusel!
|I've had teas that tasted more like pure apple, but the addition of the toasty "coffeecake" flavor makes this a very unique tea. It has a really different scent and taste that reminds me heavily of the crumbly streusel on top of a good coffeecake...a little buttery and like brown sugar. The other reviews are right...the smell is even better than the flavor, which is heavenly. I definitely recommend this tea. I will say that the cinnamon flavor is very muted...if you're a cinnamon lover, try the sweet sizzlin' cinnamon, which satisfies that urge and then some.|

||A classic combination, but the coffeecake flavor makes this unique!
|Plenty of goodies in this blend, so I went with two teaspoons! What a lovely autumn blend during this miserable weather: apple, cinnamon, orange blossoms, and a unique toasty flavor I havent tasted with any other tea.... that must be the coffeecake flavor. The ingredients in the blend play nice, but how could they not? Apples and cinnamon are the classic combination. The black tea used here enhances the fruitiness of the apple, yet adds dark layers to the cinnamon and coffeecake flavor. The orange blossoms dont add much to the flavor, as far as I can tell. The toasty flavor is actually stronger than the cinnamon. Without the toastiness, it might be an ordinary tea, but the toasty flavor brings something unique to this blend! Its definitely an autumn blend, but I could drink this all year. This was a sample in the dessert box sampler, but I would definitely stock up on this. I stole an apple cube from the infuser and it was delicious. :D
Steep #1 // 2 teaspoons for a full mug// 10 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 5 minute steep|
|This is a great tea. When drinking you get a great apple with spices flavor like a non-alcholic apple cider with a lingering taste of a little black tea with cinnamon.|

||Good to have on a cold day.
|Dessert tea or not, I like to have this in the morning. In all truth, the toasty, bakey flavor combined with the apple and cinnamon seems more breakfasty to me than anything. It smells lovely too, though since it is a bit strong you might want to keep it away from any other teas.|
||A different kind of mug cake!
|The other reviews do not lie--this smells and tastes like apple cinnamon coffee cake in tea form. Am looking forward to drinking this while watching the sun come up on cool fall mornings.|
|- Morrisa N, TN|
|There is nothing like the aroma of this tea! It is warm and fragrant - smells exactly like an apple cinnamon coffeecake. It is one of my favorite Sunday morning treats.|
|It really is apple cinnamon coffee cake in a cup. Delicious!|

||Ohhhhhh...this tea is WONDERFUL!
|I received my second shipment of Apple Cinnamon Coffeecake tea today and stowed it safely away in two Simpson and Vail tins...theYellow Ducks Tin and the Teapots Tin. I did save a bit out to give to a friend so she could try it. I know she is going to love it and I enclosed a catalog so she can order it for herself. This particular tea smells so delicious and tastes delicious as well. It is definitely dessert in a cup without the calories of coffeecake!|

|This one is a winner any time of year but especially during the autumn season. The aroma and taste of spiced apples are unmistakable. This tea warms the soul as the chill of autumn enters the air.|

||How to enjoy the taste of coffeecake without the calories.
|Soothing on a cold winters day in the Northeast. Enjoyed a cup at a friends house and had to find
a local place that sold this. Since it was gifted to her,
she could not tell me where I could buy it. Found it !!|
|- Lois, NY|
||Subtle yet sweet
|I found the tea to have a very subtle fragrance of vanilla. I was pleased to see the flower petals were orange! I would make it a bit stronger than the usual 1 teaspoon per cup.|

||Apple Cinnamon Coffeecake
|A delicious tea that smells just like apple cinnamon coffeecake, especially after drinking -- it made my entire dorm room smell like apple cake for a day! I love this tea. I recommend half and half or whole milk for a more dessert-like taste, or nothing for a lighter taste.|
|This tea is one of the most flavorful teas I have ever tasted. I have quickly become addicted to it! Love the aroma and robust flavor. It is dessert in a cup without the calories or the guilt. What more could a person want!?!|
|- Rebecca C., CT|
|This is the best apple tea that I have ever tasted! The cinnamon adds a touch of extra flavor. Its also has a beautiful visual appearance.|
