From Celestial Seasonings

“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!”
— Charlie Baden, Celestial Seasonings Blendmaster Since 1975

If you dislike cinnamon, run away! It tastes a little like cinnamon potpourri, but you can, in fact, taste the apple sweetness, especially if you let it brew for a looooong time. Adding some warm apple juice to the cup sounds like it would make it delicious.

I can certainly agree with the other reviewers who say that this tea is nearly a liquid version of Big Red gum. It tastes even worse when cold (or left to steep for too long), so drink it quickly!

I quite enjoyed this tea because of it’s aroma and because I didn’t need to add any sugar. All I added was two spoons of milk and it lessened overbearing taste of cinnamon. I wish it had more of an apple taste to it and wished that the cinnamon wasn’t so strong, but for the price, it’s not so bad and is actually quite alright. Perfect tea for the winter holidays!

I wish I had read the reviews before I impulsively bought this in the grocery store. Lesson learned. I gagged a little when I took a sip. It’s nice and fruity to start but then it’s a cinnamon metal-concert-scale takeover and that’s all you taste. I like cinnamon, but I prefer it to be balanced. Not a Big Red kinda gal, not a cinnamon apple tea kinda gal either. Maybe I’ll try steeping this in hot apple juice.

I love spiced teas! This one reminds me of a cinnamon apple cider my aunt makes around Christmastime. The cinnamon almost overpowers the apple flavor, but it certainly doesn’t mask it. I find that I usually taste the apple or the cinnamon – whichever I am in the mood for. That’s how flavorful this tea is, and the chicory and chamomile help give the tea weight. A very delightful tea that I enjoy drinking in the afternoons.

I generally prefer my apple-spice teas to be more apple and less spice, but if you drink Celestial Seasonings, you should know that they’re super-fond of cinnamon, so it’s not a big surprise that this one is heavy on that particular spice. The apple is more of a scent than a taste, really. But it’s really good mixed with a basic black tea (today I’m using Yorkshire Tea because it’s strong enough to stand up to it), and it’s strong enough to take to milk and sugar well.

I love all things fall, and this tea is pretty much the season in drinkable form! This is a strong tea, very fragrant, and may I add delicious?

Ugh. The taste was…okay at first, but the longer I left it in, the stronger it got. But not in that pleasant steep-for-a-long-time-to-let-the-flavor-intensify way. Just got really bitter and spicy toward the end to the point of my tongue and throat tingling. Definitely smelled like cinnamon and cider…The smell was actually overwhelming and made everything else smell like cinnamon apples once the box was opened. Didn’t really remind me of apple cider, actually (or even apple juice). Maybe I just left the bag in too long, so maybe I’ll give it another chance in the future with a shorter steeping time.

I’ve been a huge tea binge lately in an effort to cut down on the liquid calories I consume. I love, love, love this tea when it’s hot but it’s really strong when making iced tea. The apple flavor is too subtle to be more than barely noticeable when it’s cold and the cinnamon seems twice as strong. This is the only cinnamon tea that I’ve had the actually made my mouth tingle like Big Red does. If you’re going to be making iced tea with this, I recommend steeping for a very short time.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
