This tea was packaged in a silky pyramid tea bag and is part of the Holiday Cheer Gourmet Tea Collection. I’m going to apologize ahead of time for the horrible picture. I couldn’t find a photo of this tea so I had to scan the wrapper from my sample. This tea was absolutely delicious. It tasted exactly like a caramel apple, super sweet but balanced by a pleasant tartness. I’m a total cinnamon addict so this was right up my alley. The black tea base was mellow and smooth, providing a perfect platform for the other flavors to shine. My mom was sitting nearby and found the aroma really overpowering but I enjoyed that aspect of it. This is the third tea bag collection Adagio that I’ve sampled and I have to say that I have been very impressed by them.
