This tea has a very strong scent of cinnamon and that musty marsala scent (but the cinnamon has clearly beaten the tea and the marsala into submission). My opinion is that this blend takes the worst aspects of cinnamon, wine, and black tea and brings them out. If you are such a cinnamon fanatic that you would suck on cinnamon bark, you might like this tea. It’s a bit too much for me.

So cinnamon is a bully? lol I totally just imagined a cinnamon stick body slamming the tea;)

Oh, that is exactly what it is like. The cinnamon in this tea is a total thug. It’s a very violent tea.

Cofftea

Thanks Carolyn, I still feel like crap, but this post gave me the laugh I desperately needed. Not to mention a tea I might be interested in trying.

I love this post, thank you for a morning giggle! I hate when cinnamon decides it HAS to dominate!

Auggy

It makes me sad when any tea with ‘monkey’ in the name is bad. Shame on that cinnamon!

Cofftea

@Auggy, ditto!

Carolyn

It is a little known fact that monkeys can be very violent.

I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
