Whittards Turkish Apple
Advantages: nice taste, good amount
I am a big fan of the Whittard tea company and for Christmas I got a lovely set of fruit teas. Ever since going on holiday to Turkey years ago, I have always loved Turkish Apple tea and so to get hold of it over here is amazing. Whittard always make such great flavours of tea and are a brand that I trust a lot, that is why when I saw this in the set I was really pleased. The thing I love most about Turkish Apple tea is that it can be taken hot or cold so it goes a long way and is worth the money for definite.
This tea comes in a big cylindrical tub with a plastic lid and on the front has the Whittard logo and then around the body has a pretty green pattern which makes it stand out. The tub says that it is a flavoured instant tea then on the side are a list of the ingredients and it also tells you how to make this tea. The tub holds 475g of tea which is a lot of tea and you should have this last you quite a good while unless you are drinking it daily and a lot of it. It is an eye catching tub that stands out on the shelf very boldly.
When opening the tub, it smells very sweet and very fruity which is nice and to look at the tea is a sort of golden grain and it looks just like light brown sugar. The tea feels really light and it does look different from other fruit tea but I like that it looks really different. To make a cup of this tea is very, very easy and there is not a lot of instruction to follow. You need to add three heaped teaspoons of this mixture into a mug or glass and then add 200ml of water either hot or cold whatever you prefer.
I have tried this tea in both cold and hot and have to say for me, I do prefer it hot as it tastes much better this way but everyone is different. The tea is probably nice colder in the summer but being January it is still quite cold so hotter is a nice option and really accentuates the flavour more. They recommend if having it cold to serve it over ice but it just depends what you like. The tea should be stored in a cool dry place to keep it perfect and not getting damaged, I just keep mine closed in the tub.
This tea has quite a sweet taste at first so it may taste slightly bitter but you soon get used to the sweetness and if you do find it too sweet then just put less granules in next time and it won't be as much. The colour of the tea is that lovely warm golden colour and it does look very nice and is always very hot at first but it goes down easy. It quenches my thirst always and has a lovely taste to it which is refreshing and it just makes me feel a lot more relaxed after having a mug of this.
Most people who like fruit teas will love this Turkish Apple tea, as it is like no other tea and it is versatile in the sense that it tastes lovely hot or cold. It is a nice gift to buy someone who loves their tea and even if you are not a big tea drinker but love fruity drinks then you should give this a try as it might just surprise you. Anyone who has been on holiday to Turkey will find this brings back the memories drinking this and it really is a drink that I can't say a bad word about.
INGRDIENTS: Sugar, Citric Acid, Black Tea Extract, Natural Flavouring
This tea can be purchased from all Whittard stores or online and a 475g tub will cost you £5.50 but I do find this tends to be in the 2 for £10 offer in stores.
