Taken with milk and sugar + plain.
Without milk and sugar the tea leaves are over powered by the strong spices. Drinking this tea plain is actually kind of unpleasant in the way that tasting cinnamon by itself is dry and bitter.
With only sugar the spices mellow out and become nice. My only complaint is that the spices still over power the tea and it has a very weak mouth. This tea really just tastes like spiced water. It’s nice but not awesome.
Adding milk with the sugar rounds out the body and flavor but they are still not at all robust. The spices become well mixed and the tea flavor pops out a little more.
This is a nice holiday change but if I could have it year round I really wouldn’t be excited because it could have been done much better.
