While this tea is good, do not expect it to taste anything like it’s name or it’s smell. The aroma from the canister seduced me into buying 2 oz of this but sadly, it tastes nothing like how it smells. It’s good, don’t get me wrong, but compared to the aroma it’s a bit weak (even when I use more tea than directed). I wish it had a stronger nutty flavor.

I like to let it cool a little as I find it’s easier to taste all the notes after it’s cooled. I agree with the other poster who said it tasted a bit like apple cider. If I wanted apple cider though, it’s certainly cheaper.

Not sure if I’d order it again.

That’s it! It tastes like the hot apple cider packs my mom used to buy. I definitely agree, nothing like the name. Which is odd, given how easy it is to add nut flavor ( I think they should have skip the cinnamon).

Hello!
I’m Amanda, and I’m new to the world of tea. I got sucked in by a sample at Teavana and have been exploring ever since. I prefer loose tea but will slum it with the occasional, high quality bag.

I live just outside Chicago with my husband and our dog.
