I was so happy to see that they brought this one back again this year. It was one I really wanted to try last year but never got a chance to! I steeped a cup of this for the first time this morning and was pleasantly surprised. This tea definitely has a strong apple smell which almost reminds me of a mix of forever nuts and the glow. I didn’t like forever nuts and was a bit hesitant to whether or not I would like this tea. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised! The smell of all the spices comes through even more once steeped as does the smell of the apple. I wasn’t sure how much I would like the taste of hibiscus mixed with all the spiced but I must admit that I did. I will pick up some of this once my sample runs out and before it goes away again!
