Apple pie is proof that apples and vanilla make an enticing duo. We've blended apples with the tangy berry and bright citrus qualities of exotic Nigerian hibiscus along with lively rosehips to create this aromatic, uplifting herbal tea.
Steeping herbal tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 5-7 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.
Hibiscus (flower), rosehips (fruit), apple bits (fruit), stevia (leaf). Other Ingredients: Natural vanilla and apple flavors

Surprised myself with this one
November 26, 2014
I'm not a fan of any sort of "flowery" teas but I decided to try this on a whim to round out my sampler pack. I was pleasantly surprised at the light, crisp flavor and lovely scent. I would likely order this again in a sample pack so I could try it iced.

Hibiscus teas were recommended to me as a way to help lower my BP. The Republic of Tea was the recommended business to purchase from. I am thrilled with the results that I'm getting by simply enjoying a delicious cup of tea. The Vanilla Apple is my favorite. I'll be
a fan and customer forever!

Fabulous tasting tea. I drink a lot of black tea so I'm used to a stronger taste, this has just as much taste as black tea and it's healthy and the apple really does balance out the hibiscus. It is really good if you have a sweet tooth but don't want the calories. I added about 1/2 teaspoon of stevia and only steeped for about 2 minutes, it was perfect!!!
great health benefit

Love the vanilla apple hibiscus tea on a cold winter evening. Not only do I love the taste but it also helps control my blood pressure. Thank you republic of tea for helping to keep me healthy!
Great for kids tea party

Had it at a children's tea. Granddaughter loved it. Bought it for "home tea party". All the children loved it with a bit of raw sugar.

We ordered hibiscus with vanilla apple & strawberry. The vanilla apple really balances out the tart hibiscus, and it's wonderful. My husband likes the strawberry better because it's not as mellow. I am going to order the bulk this time!

Love this tea. I have not been a huge fan of hibiscus teas in the past because it is too tart. But this tea smells SO good, the apple comes through with the tartness with the hibiscus, but the vanilla makes is so smooth! I love love it. Will be ordering more soon.

This tea brews to a pretty purpley color. It ism however, fairly weak no matter how long you let it steep. Not as much apple or vanilla as I had hoped. It is somewhat naturally sweet and mellow. I guess I'm just used to my stronger black teas.
Best tea ever!

The best tea I have ever had by miles. I have many a different kinds of tea, but this one with a little milk, and sugar depending, does the trick every time. I have let many a friends try it and everyone is surprised by how much they like it. It has turned many a tea hater into a tea lover.
a new favorite!

With no caffeine, it is a great night time snack. Creamy vanilla, light and distinct apple, and full hibiscus are a lovely combination. With plenty of flavor, it is also very smooth. I got 3 good cups from one tea bag. I will order this one again!
My husband's favorite

My husband drinks this tea everyday. The hibiscus helps with his high blood pressure. The vanilla apple rounds out the flavor and makes for a mellow, smooth cup. However, every individual should check with their health provider regarding any herbal remedies for any medical condition.
Best I ever Had!

This is my favorite of the hibiscus teas. I always buy it in bulk.

I drink 3 cups per day using 3 tea bags each time. It is suppose to help lower blood pressure and seems to be effective along with proper diet, weight control and frequent exercise.

I ordered this tea because it sounded like a dream. Though it is VERY good, I also think it's a bit too tart. I add honey and then it is perfect.
Not what I expected but still delicious
February 12, 2012
When I purchased this tea, I was expecting a similar taste to the when I get when I combine Hot Apple Cider Tea and the Good Hope Vanilla tea bags. This tasted nothing like that, but it was still delicious! It had a berry-ish flavor that mixed with the apple and was yummy. I couldn't really taste the Vanilla, but it was still really delicious!

I've been using the Hibiscus tea for several months and I was on blood pressure medication for over 18 years. Once I started using the tea, I seen that I didn't need to take my medication and my doctor took me off my medication and have been without taking my meds for over 3 months now, with no problem with my blood pressure, it works, it took about 2 month or more to get me there, but I am here now and I love it. Thanks for the tea, it works for me.

I am totally enchanted with this drink! This is a delightful alternative to hot apple cider. The color is beautiful and the more it steeps the better the flavor. Thank you Republic of Tea!

This is a great tea for kids. My son who is 10 loves it! It is good with and without honey.
Every cupboard should have a tin...

This tea is gentle and flavorful without being too bold. Young children like it and even not-yet-converted tea drinkers like this tea. Steep it at about 180°F for nice flavor and color.
