Caffeinated herbal blends always intrigue me, because they make me constantly wonder how and where the source of the caffeine is. Typically, it ends up being that the blend either contains tea of some sort or another caffeinated plant like mate. This one is hard to tell. The package shows an apple, some cinnamon sticks, and an unidentified root or branch of some sort. Apparently, this is the source of the caffeine. While I may not know from where this tea gets its “punch,” I do know that after steeping it for the recommended five minutes, I am left with a delicious combination of cinnamon and apple flavors, blended so as to be very complimentary and not overwhelming each other. If you require a fruity and spicy tea with caffeine to jump-start your brain on a cold morning, this is the herbal blend to drink. On my personal enjoyment scale, I rate this tea an 87/100.
