Somehow during the new canister transition, they changed the recipe. It no longer tastes like apple, purely cinnamon. I used to love this tea! It smelled like the holidays and I couldn't wait to curl up with this tea and buy more. Unfortunately I've not heard back from customer service, so I'm posting here.
For all those who purchased this tea before 2018, the recipe and flavor has changed due to the ingredients going all organic. While I love it going all organic, the tea doesn’t taste the same and only tastes like cinnamon; sadly the apple notes just don’t pull through like the previous tea.
This one is exactly what you think it is and what you want in an herbal tea when you're looking for that mulled apple cider profile. You know how you walk into certain stores at Christmas and they smell Christmasy? That's how this one smells. On the palate, the cinnamon is prominent in a way that I find pleasant and just right. There's also a general fruitiness, and a bit of candy sweetness. Overall it is nostalgically evocative of the holiday season and perfect as the weather starts to turn.
