This tastes so authentically like apple cinnamon applesauce that it almost weirds me out just a little. It is unlike any apple spice tea that I have ever tried. It is true, as others have noted, that the cinnamon is not very strong. I happen to think that it is just the right amount, but that’s just because I prefer less spice in my teas. Cinnamon applesauce and apples in an apple pie taste a lot more sweet than they do spicy, so from this perspective, the tea is spot on.

But, I will say again, it does weird me out just a little to feel like I’m drinking applesauce. This is a tea I’d have to be in the right mood for. Unfortunately, it is another one that sports a funky aftertaste so I dunno if I’ll try it again. I seem to have a bigger issue with aftertastes in flavored teas than anyone else, so anyone considering this tea shouldn’t take this observation too seriously.

My Rating System

100 My happiness absolutely depends on it

95 Will definitely repurchase

85: Might repurchase (teas that depend on my mood)

75 Won’t repurchase (but I would drink it again if offered).

65: meh

45: I reluctantly finished a cup.

15: Couldn’t finish a cup.

I simplified my ratings to single numbers rather than ranges because I can’t precisely compare so many teas with a system more detailed than this.

An unrated tea is most often one that I recognize as having significant notable quality, but that does not suit me personally. Sometimes, I leave teas unrated for other reasons, such as I am undecided or I brewed it wrong, etc.

Note: Boiling temp. barely reaches 200 where I am (and a few times it sticks at 195, I assume due to unexplainable shifts in altitude or the position of the moon. . .aliens?. . .).
