It is good for colds. It has a nice taste, and I like the cinnamon. I mainly smell the cinnamon.

“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!”

This tea is extremely strong in both scent and taste… and perhaps shouldn’t even be considered your typical tea. I brewed a cup of this at a friend’s place, not expecting too much from it at first. As is typical with opening a box of tea, I expected a nice smell, thought nothing of it at first. Then I poured hot water over it. As the steam wafted from my cup, I was surprised by the strong spicy scent in the air, as well as my neighbor sitting beside me. It smelled so amazing, that I had to lean over and take some deep whiffs; wonderful! It smells stronger than a warm apple cider. With a bit of sugar in this tea, it tastes similar to that—a cider… but not quite as heavy with sugar— when brewed in the aforementioned manner, it gives you a wonderful balance of taste and light sweetness. I’m going to buy a box or two for myself the moment I see this when I go out next. Best thing I have ever drank (even outside of the range of teas) maybe… but that’s just my opinion. :³
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.
