Toffee Apple in a Cup

Toffee Apple tea

Summer may be the most cheerful season, but is by far the tastiest. Autumn means it's time for pumpkin pies, apple crumbles, cinnamon buns, and toffee apples. These treats are delicious, and so are the tea blends inspired by them. If you can't resist caramelised apples, then Toffee is a perfect tea for you.

What is Toffee Apple tea?

Toffee Apple tea is a flavoured blend inspired by the ultimate autumn treat – toffee, candy or caramelised apples. The traditional toffee apples are fresh apples coated in caramelised sugar often mixed with red food colouring. They are so popular that they even have their own national day – October 31st. Toffee Apples are usually available in autumn, but they are easy to make at home too. However, making a cup of toffee apple flavoured tea and adding the right condiments may be just as delicious.

Toffee Apple black tea blend from The Tea Crew is a pretty and deliciously smelling blend of Ceylon black tea, apple pieces, cherries, coriander seeds, almonds and natural flavourings. It smells sweet and fresh, with deep sweet apple base notes. Since a good apple needs not only to be sweet, but fresh and crispy too, smooth and crisp Ceylon black tea is a brilliant choice for this blend.

The best thing about liquified autumn treats is that while they are full of flavour, they are also virtually calorie free. This tea doesn't contain any added sugar, but since it's a black tea, it contains caffeine.

How to brew this tea?

Use 1 heaped teaspoon of tea leaves per cup of water and steep for 3-5 minutes at 100 degrees Celsius. First and foremost, this is a Ceylon black tea. It's not an intensely flavoured blend, and the scent is lightly sweet, with deeper black tea notes. Toffee Apple is highly aromatic, but still light autumnal tea with hints of apples and sweetness. It's not astringent or bitter and is great with no condiments.

For the ultimate experience, the best possible way to drink it is with 1 teaspoon of unsweetened condensed and ½ teaspoon of brown sugar. With a bit of creaminess and nutty sweetness, the result is a real liquified autumnal treat. It will still be low in calories, as adding ½ teaspoon of sugar and 1 teaspoon of condensed milk will add approximately 30 calories to this tea.
