I thought that I would enjoy this tea more… it smells just like hot apple cider, so I was expecting something much more flavorful. The taste is there.. it’s just, quite soft and not as pronounced as I would have liked. I’m also tasting more of the other ingredients and less of the apple. Good, but not great.

My favorite was to drink this was to combine it with a bag of unflavored green tea. I’d let the green steep for 3 minutes and this one for 10.

Jaime, did you taste a bunch of apple or cider at all?
I’m wondering if maybe I missed the point of the tea by expecting cider notes… instead of the flavor as a whole. I want so much to like this tea more!

Jaime

I don’t remember much about it, but I do remember thinking it was rather weak. It never smacked me in the mouth and let me know it was apple cider. I almost bought another tin of it though, because I remember taking the last bag out and sadly staring into the empty tin. It was one that grew on me, I think.
