This festive fruit tisane is great all year round.  It smells like christmas, but tastes like summer.  Sweet roasted, caramelized almonds, apples, and beetroot sprinkled with cinnamon make this a favorite.

Taster’s Review:

This is so yummy!  No wonder it’s Caraway Tea’s #1 seller!

The aroma is warm with sweet cinnamon and toasted nuts.  I can also smell hints of apple in the background … you know, I have to disagree a little bit with the above description, because this smells more autumnal to me.  I can certainly understand where the “Christmas” comparison comes from, but for me, this is autumn.  If I close my eyes and take a big whiff, I can even “see” the beautiful fall leaves on the trees.

This is a light-to-medium bodied tisane that is beautifully sweet.  It tastes like a cross between lightly spiced apple cider and freshly roasted almonds that have been sprinkled lightly with cinnamon and sugar.  And… no, I didn’t add any sweetener to this, that sugar sweetness comes naturally from the beetroot (which also provides a pretty, pinkish color to the cup).

While I am sure that this makes a very tasty iced tea, the autumnal feel of it demands that it be served hot.  It is so cozy and delightfully comforting.  A delightful dessert substitution that is naturally caffeine-free so it can be enjoyed any time of day.  Kids will love this one too!
