“This dreamy blend perfectly captures the experience of biting into a freshly dipped caramel apple. Sweet apple and cinnamon flavors are quickly followed by the melt-in-your-mouth taste and aroma of creamy caramel, plus hints of maple and just a dash of sea salt to balance the sweetness.” -Charlie Boden, Celestial Seasonings Blendmaster

I actually love this tea.
You know how caramel apples seem so brilliant and appetizing, in theory? It’s the holiday season and it’s dark out but the incandescent lights of a mall are so yellow and warm, and now that you’re inside you’re actually starting to get a a little toasty in your heavy jacket. You peer into the glass display case of That Commercial Confectioner (name withheld) and see rows and rows of sleek, shiny, beautiful candied fruits. You can just imagine the complementary marriage of apple and caramel: sweet-on-tart, creamy-on-crunchy, gooey-on-firm.
Then you buy the apple and the caramel is really thick and actually hyper-sweetened with no darkness or richness and you can barely even penetrate it because it clogs your jaw. And when you finally do, you’re left with a sad, naked, hardened Granny Smith, bare of caramel and bereft of flavor. And you are so sad. So you just eat the caramel and then feel bad because you wasted the apple, and curse Corporate America and The Holidays and spend the remainder of the day grinching out, surreptitiously trying to pry caramel out of your molars whilst being accosted by holiday salespeople.
You know what I mean…right? But this tea doesn’t do that. This tea doesn’t disappoint. Being a liquid, it doesn’t suffer from the logistical plights of actual caramel apples. This tea is the caramel apple on the rack, perfect and glistening and full of holiday hope, sweet and warming and delicious. It is wonderful. Try it.

So at around 12:30, I was checking out a crochet pattern and decided I need new yarn. Consequently, my mom and I decided to venture out to the 24hr Wal Mart up the street. Then, 2 hrs later we left with no yarn but a bunch of Batman and Marvel sweatshirts and this tea (which I was tricked into buying by Celestial Seasonings new packaging).
The color of the tea looked like plenty of hibby in the leaf but it is not tart. Unfortunately it is not caramel either and there is certainly no sea salt. Cinnamon is prevalent in this and a little bit of apple flavoring comes through right at the end but it’s a fake apple versus the taste of the fruit.
Actually, as I continue to drink I am getting more hibiscus which is making up part of the apple taste yet as the hibiscus comes out so does the caramel. It’s weird because the two flavors can be tasted at the same time and yet they aren’t blending. They are both there but both separate. I have this cold brewing as well so I guess we’ll see what happens with that.
I picked up the last two boxes they had of this in the grocery store before I moved so I should be set until it’s back next fall! That being said, I haven’t had much tea in the past few days amidst the hustle and bustle of moving.
I’ve had to change my method of making tea. Before I was using a keurig for hot water and now I get to use a kettle (yay!) While unpacking I keep forgetting I even made tea so this keeps getting cold… Unfortunately, I’ve learned that this is not a good iced tea :/
The best part of this tea is it tastes just like a liquid caramel apple. The worst part is, well, do we need a tea that tastes like that?
I don’t taste any cinnamon or hibiscus.
There are other apple teas I enjoy much more. I think it’s just too much with the caramel.
I tend not to like Celestial Seasoning’s apple flavoring, so I was hesitant to try this. But, it had enough positive reviews here that I decided it was worth a shot. THe final verdict…I still don’t like Celestial Seasoning’s apple flavoring. It doesn’t taste too bad at first, but as the tea cools it gets sweeter and more artificial tasting to the point where I find the tea undrinkable. I am very much not a fan.
I was blown away by this one! It tastes exactly like a caramel apple. They managed to make it sweet without resorting to stevia (thank God) . The apple tastes genuine, and the caramel dances with it. The hibiscus and cinnamon were interesting choices, but upon sipping it, they work. The hibiscus works with the apple and brings in a tart note to counter the sweetness from the caramel and the cinnamon.
I hope they don’t stop making this one! It’s fabulous. Better than Bigelow’s seasonal Apple Cider flavor.

Ha-ah! Found some! Granny Smith juice up front, a hint of burnt sugar in the back. Another one that may improve more with a little dairy and sugar, but I’m far too schleppy to get up. (Reveling in the dregs of a decadently quiet holiday weekend: tree up, cat snoozing on my lap, “Fiddler on the Roof” cranked up loud. L’chaim!)
Not a fan.
I got this for my boyfriend to try since he really likes warm apple drinks in the colder months and loves caramel. Turns out that this is so not for me. It tastes like a sour apple with a lot more sourness than should still be present after coating it in caramel. The caramel isn’t really noticeable, especially compared to how strong I thought it would be based on the name. There also seemed to be a fine line between weak and overpowering when it came to steep times. My cup was too weak at 3 1/2 minutes, so he left his bag in for almost 5. The hibiscus in this kind of took over at that point. Why on earth did hibiscus need to be the second ingredient in this tea?!?!?? Oh well. The search continues for an apple-y caramelly tea that he’ll like.
