Of all the teas I have tried from the Harvest Collection, this is the one that strikes me as a truly autumnal flavor. In the beginning I didn't particularly care for it, but over time it grew on me as I began to appreciate the unique combination of flavors. This tea encompasses fall flavors that have been missing from a fall lineup rife with heavy spices, bringing something a bit more traditional to the table.
While this tea was hot I had trouble tasting the apple, but once it cooled to room temperature the flavors began to shine. The apple is present, but in a much more subtle way than I expected. There is a sweetness I noticed with each sip that balances well with the bitter snap from the molasses. The added spices round the tea out giving it a hint of the classic fall spice teas. If you want a unique fall tea be sure to give this one a shot.
My Rating: 81/100
Would I order this again? Yes. It is really exciting so see such a traditional combination of flavors.
