scourger Posted September 6, 2008 Share Posted September 6, 2008 There's desire in the air…and it's as delicious as an apple chai sure to warm when the weather turns brisk. Be tempted by our spicy apple and berry blend kissed with mouth-watering honey and sugar…surrender to sweet and steamy Autumn Lust! In the bottle: I get fresh, crisp apples, a sign that summer is at an end and the heat is finally breaking. On, wet: The apples stay crisp, but the cardamom and other spices are more apparent. It's not the smell of apple pie fresh from the oven, but the smell of apple pie about to go in the oven; the apples still crisp and tart, with spices and sugar sprinkled over them. There's even a little bit of something like pie crust in the background, though that could be my sense memory fooling me. Drydown: An almost buttery honey note comes through, blending perfectly with the apples, which have now stepped back a bit. The cardamom is still the most dominant spice note, which keeps this from becoming a cliched, cinnamon apple combo. This is a much more lively spiced apple than Liberty Belle, redolent of deep blue skies over leaves just starting to turn, and hayrides with fresh cider waiting to refresh you at the end. Mmmmm.
