A spicy apple pie taste (more spicy than most bland apple pies bought in stores) but not quite apple enough to be a spiced apple cider.

Had another 2 cups during the day and finished it off. I don't think I'll be buying this again, some of their other herbals are so much tastier, and I wanted more apple in it.

Post-Steep Additives: honey

didn't notice much difference

Rating: 2/3
