Taster’s Review:

This tisane smells so good – like my gramma’s apple pie!

The taste is a bit more like the name of the tisane suggests:  Apple Crumble.  This tastes quite a bit like an apple cobbler or apple crumble. There’s even a creamy vanilla flavor to this cup to make it a bit like apple crumble a la mode.  YUM!

The apple flavor is strong, sweet, and it tastes true to the fruit.  It doesn’t taste like a fresh apple, instead, it tastes more like a caramelized baked apple with a sprinkling of cinnamon and brown sugar.

The honeybush is the perfect base for this tisane, because it has a natural nutty flavor and sweet, honey-esque tone which plays well to the pastry aspect of the crumble.

Overall, this is a delicious, dessert-y tisane.  It is naturally caffeine free, so, it makes a great late-night snack when you’re craving something sweet but don’t want to eat something heavy and calorie-laden.  This tastes indulgent without the guilt!
