Light in Color. This is probably one of the most fragrant teas of the MoOT that I have smells so far. You can certainly smell the apples and cinnamon…smells a lot like Hot Cider. It does taste that way tho. The taste is quite fruity. Almost a bit too much for me – I prefer a tea taste with fruit undertones not a full fruit flavor with little or no tea taste. I like the smell of it but not so much on the taste. I will finish the cup but I won’t be making it a point to buy this one. It’s not terrible but it’s not wonderful either.
