drank Organic Apple Red by Tazo
22 tasting notes

Most people love apple and cinnamon flavors… I, apparently, do not. It had an earthy brown liquor and a wonderful aroma. It smelled like so many Yankee candles or scented potpourri. I appreciated the nice sour apple pucker in this tea, but it was so horribly smothered with cinnamon that it tasted more like a cider gone horribly wrong. There were splashes of watery caramel that just weren’t welcome and didn’t fit in.

The most infuriating thing is that I can’t understand where I went wrong. I can enjoy almost any tea, and I love Tazo teas…but I literally threw the cup of tea out.

EDIT: I think I know why I don’t like it! A revelation! It’s flavor reminded me of something, I now remember what it was. It reminds me of the Quaker Oats, cinnamon/apple-flavored oatmeal I had as a child. In respects to breakfast and oatmeal…I got sick of it eventually and have never really liked the flavor since… =/

I love the scent of apple cinnamon teas but usually can’t drink them! ek! I don’t blame you!

Oh, man. I used to live on that Quaker Oats stuff as a kid. The kind we got had this “flavor packet,” out of which you would squeeze a gel-like paste of whatever the flavor was supposed to be. They just don’t make “healthy” food like they used to. Ah, memories.

Quaker Oats, I tried it once, and only once. I hate oatmeal.
I love apple but I hate cinnamon. I can sometimes handle some cinnamon + apple desserts, but I can’t stand cinnamon tea. Well, I guess I don’t like “spices” in general for my tea, because I’m one of the few people who don’t like chai.
Anyway, you’re not the only person who doesn’t like apple cinnamon tea!

I mean well, despite being a finicky tea snob. That said, I don’t usually traffic outside of Tazo, Adagio and the odd brand. I only drink tea when I can afford the best and I’m not too adventurous. I have an Oolong pallet, but, also, I have an opinion on everything. So sit down, boil the water and have a cup of tea with me.
