This is great! And that is NOT something I will generally say with so much enthusiasm about a chamomile tisane.
In fact, when I receive chamomile tisanes, my initial reaction is a sort of cringe, and then I usually stash it away and try to forget about it until it manages to get my attention (usually because I’ll feel badly about neglecting it). It’s not even that I dislike chamomile, because although I can’t say that I love it, I don’t hate it, and I have grown to appreciate it. But, I don’t drink it every night, and I think I probably should as it does provide restful benefits.
The apple flavor is not an overwhelming taste, but it is a natural pairing with the chamomile which tends to have a somewhat apple-y character to it anyway. The cinnamon and apple flavors is what I taste here, with hints of a nutty flavor from the rooibos. The flavor of the rooibos is not a strong taste, mostly what I taste is a nutty sweetness, but no aftertaste and not so much of a wood-like quality that I sometimes get from rooibos.
But as I said, what I taste primarily is apple and cinnamon, and these two flavors seem pretty evenly matched. It isn’t a hot, spicy cinnamon taste – it is a mild, sweet cinnamon that accents the apple tones. It tastes a bit like an apple-y dessert!
If this was the chamomile tisane in my tea cupboard, I’d have no problems at all drinking it every night. In fact, I think I’d look forward to it.
