Another tea I took out of the GCTTB.
This is tasty, but it’s another tea who’s name doesn’t make sense. There is no cinnamon in caramel apples. This is apple pie, or apple crisp, or something that is apple, cinnamon bakery goodness. Disappointed, wanted crisp tart apple, with caramel
Tasty but wrong name. :((
From the Great Canadian TTB.
This one smells so good. It smells strongly of sour green apples (my favorite) and it also smells very sweet.
I brewed this one two bags for 8 oz. It actually turned out quite weak. I was disappointed in the taste. It is very flat. There is a slight apple flavour but I am not getting the same sour green tart taste that would go along with the smell. I do get a sweetness. Kind of like caramel. It actually mixes quite well with the rooibos.
This one gets slightly more flavourful as it cools but it is still pretty flat.
Yay! Sipdown achieved today after all!
So I steeped the heck out of this walking between the office and getting caught up in a 10 minute conversation with my boss about GuildWars2 (him and his wife play and he was excited that I made a character).
Thankfully this can handle it. If anything it just brings the cinnamon out as that’s the prime ingredient I’m getting. And then apple. It’s very tasty for a bagged tea. The apple is really tasty. I don’t really get caramel but it’s enjoyable enouugh.
158 teas in the stash! :O
Smells a bit like an Airwick ‘Apple Cinnamon’ air freshener, and I’m not sure that’s something I like in a tea. One of Zhena’s other rooibos teas was actually my first experience with red tea ever (And it was not a good one) so I was a little skeptical about giving this one a shot—but I’m glad I did.
I nice light, sweet taste! Reminds me of a nice hot apple cider! It’s a delicious herbal tea to unwind with while watching Hoarders on A&E! (which is my monday night ritual, do not judge me).
What’s this? A rooibos I can stand?? Sorry, had to get that out. This is a very mellow, lightly spiced tea. It still has a bit of that rooibos aftertaste that I don’t really like, but it somehow goes well with the apple, cinnamon, and chamomile flavor. The taste reminds me of real apple cider, just not as strong and sour.
Hmm, I wish I’d have known this was a red rooibos before I selected it to bring to work with me today… Both the bag and the brew smell quite strongly of rooibos, pretty medicinal. However, from the brewed tea at least, I am getting quite hefty smells of caramel, like jarred caramel sauce after it’s been warmed. Not so much apple, though, and the chamomile isn’t earning it any points, either. (I’m only a fan of chamomile in certain applications, anyway, because it tends to taste like bland lemonade to me, without any of the citrus-y bite that lemonade should have… if that makes any sense.)
Whoa. In the first few sips, I’m getting nothing BUT apple and chamomile. The caramel didn’t show up until the fifth or sixth sip, and the rooibos has mercifully taken a backseat. The overall effect is not as unpleasant as it might have been, but still not something I’d ever think of and go “yeah, I’m in the mood for THAT.” I’ll probably finish this cup, but I definitely won’t be buying this. Thanks to IrishBreakfastLass for this one, though (I think… I may be remembering incorrectly who sent this to me, and if I got the wrong person, I’m sorry!). Glad I got to try it.
This is a sample I got from someone. Thank you mysterious benefactor!
It’s pretty tasty. It has a light flavor of apple pie that really complements the rooibos/honeybush blend. It’s not overwhelmingly sweet even though it has licorice root. I didn’t even know it had licorice root until I looked at the website, which is great since I tend to really dislike licorice root. This is all around a pretty satisfying lightly sweet, lightly spiced apple flavored tea. I would drink this again, but it’s probably not something I should pick up right now since licorice root is one of those things pregnant women are supposed to avoid. Oops! At least there’s not much in this blend.
