Thumbs up!"I enjoyed the combination of the vanilla, apple and almond in the flavor profile and the quality of the rooibos is good. I think this is a nice alternative for folks who are a looking for something a little different from the typical apple cinnamon blends."

kteaslogo"This Rooibush with apple strudel is a tremendous dessert beverage & makes today your own special holiday." ---KTeas website.

Tonight I went rummaging through my sample options not sure what I was in the mood for. However, as soon as I opened the sample package and inhaled the delicious aroma of this Rooibush Apple Streudel, I knew I found my next cup of tea. The aroma is reminiscent of Fall apples and marzipan. KTeas lists the ingredients of this one as red rooibush, apple pieces, chopped almonds, and other natural flavors and my sample contains a fair number of dried apple pieces and almond slivers.

I scooped generously when preparing my cup and infused the mixture with boiling water for 5 min. I found that I enjoyed this tea best once it had a chance to cool a bit as the flavor profile seemed to come into it's own. The resulting cup is rather tasty. To my surprise, however, instead of the flavor profile being dominated by apples or almonds, my tastebuds taste vanilla as the lead flavor! I found this to be an interesting twist to my expectations. The combination of the vanilla, apples and almonds come together in the nutty rooibos base to create an enjoyable dessert tea. I did find that I enjoyed this cup best with a pinch of German Rock Cane sugar as that seemed to bring up the flavor profile a bit. However, even with the addition of sweetener, the flavor profile is not as full as some might prefer. I also tried this with a splash of fat free half & half. Due to the less than robust flavor profile, I was a bit concerned that the addition of a bit of dairy might wash this out. However, it provided a bit of extra creamy goodness and the cup maintained a reasonable amount of flavor.

KTeas is a company that I have found to offer a number of solid tea blends. This Rooibush Apple Streudel is no exception. I enjoyed the combination of the vanilla, apple and almond in the flavor profile and the quality of the rooibos is good. I think this is a nice alternative for folks who are a looking for something a little different from the typical apple cinnamon blends. While I personally would like to tweak this one just a bit and bring the overall flavor profile up a few notches so that it is a little fuller, this one is still worth consideration. Further, at the time of this review, KTeas has the majority of its blend on sale to make way for new packaging!
