Its OK"For the most part, this tea drinks like a naturally nutty rooibos with a tiny smidge of added almond. This tea failed to deliver the apple flavor that its name suggests."

kteaslogoRooibush Apple Streudel is an herbal concoction consisting of rooibos (or rooibush, if you insist on saying it that way), apple pieces, chopped almonds, and other natural flavors, Upon examining my sample, I could see small pieces of almond, but really couldn't see the pieces of apple. The tea's aroma was primarily nutty, likely resulting from the rooibos itself, as well as the almonds (and perhaps the other natural flavors added, although its hard to say without knowing what those flavors are). After brewing this tea and mulling ot over for some time, I have decided that this tea is not fantastic, but nor is it undrinkable. I guess I would call it decent. My main criticism of this tea was that it failed to deliver the apple flavor that its name suggested it would carry. Even the almond flavor was fairly weak. For the most part, this tea drinks like a naturally nutty rooibos with a tiny smidge of added almond. Again, it's not that it was bad, but I do think it could have been better. On my second attempt with this tea, I added some sugar, and while this sweetened the tea and seemed to round out the nuttiness, it didn't help coax out the apple flavor. I also should note that only a little bit of sugar was needed; this tea seems easy to oversweeten so that the essence of the tea itself is lost beneath the over-sugared water. Having reviewed a large number of KTeas blends, I know that KTeas is a great company with some nice teas to offer. I personally don't find this one to be among their best, but those that like mellow rooibos blends might enjoy this one.
