For Tea's Sake Sour Apple Martini Tea

When I was at Plumyumi Day Spa last week, I was intrigued by the name of one tea in particular, the Sour Apple Martini blend. It's rather ironic since I'm a teetotaler (or tea-totaler, as I like to say), but I have always love-love-loved sour apple anything! When I commented that I was interested in this tea, the owner of the spa offered to brew me a cup on the spot, and I took him up on it. It was a wise move on his part, because after just one cup, I bought the largest tin they had before I left!

Are you a fan of sour apple flavor? I remember fondly the sour apple Jolly Ranchers of my youth, and I also recall a sour apple chewing gum that I don't see around anymore. A good grown-up replacement is this Sour Apple Martini green tea, which contains green tea, apple and lemon pieces, safflower and sunflower petals, and natural flavors. Somehow, they managed to subtly capture that "sour" taste in the tea, and I just love it!

I steeped the tea in a filter basket in my teacup, and I enjoyed seeing the bits of fruit and the tea leaves spring to life. While this tea is one of those I'm now fortunate to be able to  purchase locally, if you don't live nearby, you can visit the For Tea's Sake website and check it out for yourself!


  1. For Tea's Sake is a Canadian tea company (nice to see them being distributed in the States), so I can actually find their teas are my local stores. Yay! I usually gravitate towards the sweet teas, but thanks to your positive review, I'd like to sample the Sour Apple Martini. Looks like it would also make a great iced tea!

  2. Sounds interesting! (I do remember the Sour Apple Jolly Ranchers.)

  3. I am not a sour anything fan...so I'll pass. Loved the spa name though!

  4. What an amazing tea combination. What will these tea people think of next. Glad you liked it.

  5. Sounds interesting. Have you tried it iced?

  6. I most likely would not have even wanted to taste anything sour, however, I am glad you did. I love this spa idea and all it offers.


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
