The aroma of this tea was incredible. It struck me as being slightly more like apple cobbler but I was blown away by how "baked" it smelled. The taste was oh so juicy and sweet without being syrupy. The cassia (aka Chinese cinnamon) gave it a perfect touch of home baked goodness. Even though the fruit was definitely the dominant flavor, there was a subtle earthiness in the background that kept it from becoming overwhelming. After drinking this herbal tea, I really wanted a slice of pie! It had a very interesting blend of ingredients and I think they really came together and delivered. I've had several teas from Stash's guayusa dessert tea line and they have all been delicious.
