Nice aroma of apple and cinnamon.

The taste is a light apple cider flavor, which I liked quite a bit. The apple flavor could be a little stronger, but overall, pretty good.

Grabbed a box of this for the holidays because I was feeling in the spirit of the season.

The tea has a wonderful aroma of cinnamon and clove, which is great for making the house smell nice. The problem is that the actual taste of the tea is extremely bland. There really is no flavor whatsoever. I was pretty disappointed.

I bought this chamomile on a whim, and I find it pleasant.

The bag is a nice mesh, and allows plenty of room for the flowers to expand. After five minutes of steeping the tea was a very light peach color. It gave off a much lighter aroma than I would have expected given the strong citrus smell that came the teabag had.

The tea had a very light upfront flavor of orange right off the bat, but this gave way pretty quickly to an aftertaste that I can only really describe as Fruity Pebbles. Maybe I’m a little bit nostalgic, but I think that taste really is nice.

I don’t have a lot of experience with chamomile, and I think this could be better with a stronger, slightly more flowery taste, but I liked it well enough.
