It's important not to expect fruit teas to taste like juice or cider; if you do, they'll always disappoint. And it's important to remember that the flavor is often less intense than the scent. But with those points in mind, Tazo's caffeine-free apple and cinnamon rooibos blend is a calming tea for fall, fragrant but delicate, and just lightly spicy.
Rooibos is a bit of an acquired taste, but its flavor works well here, latching into the sweet apple and chamomile notes. Serve with toast and apple (or pumpkin) butter.
Around $5, available online.
