This is a nice tea. Tastes similar to cider, as someone else noted, but much more refined. Very different from other Rooibos teas I’ve had in the past. Smooth flavor with very light notes of coconut and ginger.

I just love how this tea smells, it’s by far my favorite in that aspect, I could keep on smelling it forever. Tastewise I don’t feel the flavor is as strong as the smell, but a little sugar helps a lot in improving the taste.
I’ll stop writing this review and go for another cup right now.
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Coconut
Yes – this one’s a winner for me! Quite unique – almonds and …. something. Don’t know if it’s the ginger or not. I used a heaping teaspoon of rock sugar for a 16 oz. brew, which is a bit more than I usually do. Very enjoyable tea that I will be keeping on my shelf.
This came in the Teavana holiday collection with cute little tins! I taste the rooibos and something else that I couldn’t put my finger on. Not really coconut or ginger. Maybe it was the combo of the two. I had to come look at the packaging to see what was in it. Apple! Yep I taste the apple on the back side of this. Has a cherry taste to me but no cherries in it. First cup I tried it with honey. Second cup with rock sugar. I did like this tea. But I won’t search it out to replace it.
Flavors: Apple, Cherry
This dry tea smells truly amazing. Once brewed though, it had an aroma that’s very unpleasant to me. The flavor is just like the aroma. It reminds m of something unpleasant from my past.
My BF loves it and is insisting we buy more. He drank his cup, and then mine. I guess it’s a hit with one of us.
I’m splitting our ratings and ending with an average.
I have this theory: I don’t really like coconut in my tea. This blend seems to be popular, but I really wasn’t into it. There was “just something about it” that wasn’t sitting well, and I have thought this about other blends. I am starting to think the common denominator is coconut… stick with me, we’ll test that theory.
It is hard to objectively review the positives, because it certainly has potential, when I am so stuck on that “something” that I don’t like… Perhaps I shall keep it simple and leave it at: Not my cup of tea.
This (currently) my favorite tea. The coconut flavor is strong but the ginger and spices come through really well – I’m not sure I detect almond or apple, but the chai type pepper/cardamom/cinnamon mashup is delightful! My husband bought this for me for Christmas and I’ve re-upped twice already
