Still have the original blend and it tastes better than I remember it. Now that it’s fall I will get to drinking it! It’s sweet, of course, a little artificial, but its tasty all the same.

Here’s Hoping TTB
I’m not sure if this is the same Apple Cider tea that David’s has this year but I like this one. It is a little artificial/candy flavored but I’m not mad. It still tastes more like apple cider than apple juice which makes me happy. I’ll be taking this one out of the box to fill the hole in my collection where Celestial Seasonings’ Caramel Apple Dream once was.
Quick edit: if they wanted this to really be more like cider, it’s missing those cinnamon and clove notes I crave in cider.
Flavors: Apple, Apple Candy, Artificial, Sweet
This lovely tea isn’t going to last long! I am starting to inhale it! It’s so yummy iced in my new iced tea travel press! I love this thing. Like so much!
Anyways, I’m loving this one as an iced tea. It’s already sweet enough on its own so nothing added to this one. The rest of my tin won’t last long now…
Thanks for sending me some of this, EmilyGee!
As others have noted, this blend definitely needs no sweetener. It tastes just like hot apple juice – maybe a little thinner than actual juice. I really want it to have some cinnamon in the blend. It doesn’t quite seem like cider without cinnamon. So I made another cup with fresh leaf and half of a crushed up cinnamon stick. Alas, it still wasn’t quite enough. This is a sipdown but I’ll try for a full cinnamon stick if I ever have this again.
This one is a backlog note from who knows when, because I seem to only reach for this one when I’m about to go to bed…
I’ve tried this tisane both as a hot brew, and as a cold brew mixed with tonic water to try to recreate the effect of sparkling apple cider. It’s definitely sweet and apple-flavored, and I would call the cider experiment a success. But seeing the ingredients has me wondering whether that apple flavor I’m tasting is natural. Left to my own devices, I can’t really tell, and it’s unfortunate to think all the apple pieces in the mix might not be contributing much. It’s still tasty, but I would be more impressed with a blend that could use all-natural ingredients to produce a similar flavor.
