Wow cinnamon. I couldn’t smell it dry but it’s all I can smell steeped. Just waiting on this tea to cool before I taste it.

Hmm. I’m not really loving it. Must be the hot cinnamon. I really don’t think I’ve ever had a tea with cinnamon in it before – even when they try to sprinkle it on top at tea shops I ask that they don’t. That must be what’s throwing me off with this one. I can perhaps taste a slight hint of vanilla but other than that it’s just cinnamon.

I don’t really know how milk would go with this one. Or if I would be better iced. I’ll leave a rating once I’ve given it another try.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), travel, science, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not always in the mood for them. Greens and pu’erhs I’m working on, but they’re coming along at a snail’s pace. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino). Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss, to be continued…
