This is an odd tea. I liked this tea, but something about it is throwing my taste buds off. It’s a tad bit more fruity than I expected, but it is not overly sweet. I think I would have this tea again.

“Screw it. I don’t care if this IS a cheap, low-end teabag – I am quite enjoying it. The description is mostly dead-on. This is all sweet apple and cinnamon with a hint of creamy sweetness...” Read full tasting note
“Wow, tough crowd, eh? =) So, ya. This is cinnamon tea with some apple sweetness. If you’re looking for the cinnamon to modify the apple with grace and subtlety, you’ll need to steep...” Read full tasting note
“this is the cinnamon bark potpourri sachet your grandmother warned you about; a fiery tisane with stentorian sinus-clearing capabilities, and a rabble-rouser at that. i wouldn’t be surprised...” Read full tasting note
“I really tried liking this tea. I really tried. It smells nice and the apple flavor is there, it’s juicy and refreshing. What’s wrong? That damn cinnamon! It’s too overpowering...” Read full tasting note
“This lively blend is dominated by an aromatic burst of sweet and spicy Vietnamese cinnamon and bushels of juicy, all-American apples. There’s a toasty chocolate note and a hint of creamy butterscotch in the finish that complements the lasting taste of apples and cinnamon – making this tea comforting and invigorating all at once!”

I expected this to be a great tea because of the name. Who wouldn’t want a tea that tastes like apple cider? Unfortunately, Celestial Seasonings was way off the mark. The cinnamon is overpowering when it would be best as a subtle flavor. The apple is barely discernible under all the cinnamon!

Backlog. I just got back from a trip to New Mexico. I love the desert, but it really does not love me back. By the last day I was dried out, feeling sick, and fighting a migraine. Now I am back home and feeling a ton better in the (relative) humidity of Indiana.
I can’t believe there’s hibiscus in this! That sneaky little flower. I honestly didn’t taste it this time. This is a pretty good approximation of spiced apple cider, and after a long day of travel and a colder-than-expected forecast it was more than welcome. Sweet like a candy apple but somehow not overwhelming, strongly cinnamon-y, and I actually managed to resteep it once. Not bad for a cheap bag.
I’ve had apples that tasted less like apple than this tea. Props to celestial seasonings for creating strangely accurate fruit herbals, as their peach tea tastes uncannily like peaches, too. Anyhow, this tea epitomizes fall: crisp and fresh-picked apples, warm cinnamon, and the color of changing leaves. You owe it to yourself to try this during fall.
This tea tastes fine on the first sip, a somewhat artificial apple flavor, with a strong kick of cinnamon, but even if you take out the teabag it quickly gets more and more sweet until it is so sweet that it is utterly undrinkable. I do not recommend it.

Eek. This tea is rubbish. It’s far too sweet – even if you don’t sweeten it – and it doesn’t taste good at all. I’m a fan of Celestial Seasonings teas, but this is one I will not be buying again. Perhaps it would suit the taste of a young child or sweet-toothed adult, but blimey, it tastes like being slapped in the face with a giant apple-infused sugar cube.
To put it as best as I can, this is like drinking liquid Red Hots candy. You’ll never taste the apple in this because the cinnamon overpowers it by a huge magnitude. Even steeping it for less than the recommended time yields a too-strong-to-be-enjoyable cinnamon taste. Unless you need to clear your sinuses or get rid of serious garlic breath, I would avoid this tea.
I can’t seem to over brew this one. The cinnamon flavor is not so strong that it overpowers the apple and it tastes physically juicy, as opposed to tasting like juice. In terms of a bag tea it’s great. Those who like their tea strong might have issues when doing a round 2 with the the same teabag. No matter how long I let it steep or how much time I take off the original brew it still tastes watery. But hey, I’m sure my plants would love it.
