Review of Cinnamon Apple Herbal Tea
December 17th, 2016
Not even realizing I had a bag of this, I discovered it while digging in my pantry's tea shelves for something else. Guess my wife won't miss just one bag, eh...especially if there was only one in there. ;-)
Overall, I liked this tea a lot. The real apple pieces are quite visible inside the bag, and impart the great majority of this blend's flavor. The cinnamon is there and could stand to be a touch more assertive, but still isn't drowned by apple flavor. I can smell the rose petals and licorice root but not taste them, and can detect the lemon peel and hibiscus neither with nose nor tongue. The aroma is stronger and surprisingly different than the flavor--beyond the dominant apple theme on both fronts.
Regardless, it's a more dynamic flavor than than just glorified apple cider in a tea bag, and tasted delicious and plenty potent after a lot of steeping, as a steamy cup o' tea on a cold winter night.
Nahh, she won't notice it's gone, will she?
