This tea is dominated by the taste of cinnamon. As someone that loves cinnamon I really enjoyed this tea. I gave it a lower score than other teas for two reasons, the unnecessary spicy kick and that I prefer the pu’erh based Cinnamon Heart, also from Davids Tea.

My memory of the cinnamon hearts candy is that the heat comes purely from the cinnamon candy, not the peppercorns and chilies added to this tea giving it some negative marks.

It is also difficult to not compare this tea directly to Cinnamon Heart from Davids Tea as they are both attempting a similar flavour blend. I prefer the Cinnamon Heart tea as the cloves and orange peel aide the cinnamon in coming out instead of competing with it. Had I not previously had this other tea I would be deeply in love with Hot Lips.

I just can’t bring myself to love Cinnamon Heart. But I totally suspect that it is because I’ve yet to be won over to the pu’erh teas, and that’s such a part of what makes that one great to those who love it. I’m hoping they make this one permanent so we both get our cinnamon fire fixes!
