What quick shipping! I received this in my mailbox today, and just had to open it right up. This smells so deliciously of cinnamon and sweetness. And yes, it does look Christmasy with the greenish leaves and pink peppercorns.

The flavor is very spicy, but not so much that it overwhelms the white tea base. The cinnamon is similar to the liquid red hots feel the Red Hot Cinnamon black tea had. I think I’m tasting a bit of apple in the swallow, but I’m not sure if I’m just wanting the sweetness I taste to be the apple, knowing that it should be in there.

Well, if it’s any attest to how good this tea is, I finished it before I was done typing this review:) I can’t decide if I want a second cup of this, or to move on to another new tea. We shall see.

Yes! Another cup!:) Great review… although I’m a little worried about the red hots reference.

Oh, I hope my order’s in the mail (even though it didn’t include this one). How does it compare to the spiced pear?

Cofftea-it isn’t totally like red hots, but it’s a liquid cinnamon feel if that makes any sense. It tastes different than the powdery cinnamon taste I get from some chais and my pumpkin spice lattes. It’s silkier.

Jaime-Hope you get your order today! It’s spicier than the spiced pear, I think the spicing is a bit different too. I don’t get as much fruit from this one, and the base is a little deeper/more rich. The Apple Vanilla Chai has more flavor right off the bat but the pear is more subtle.

Jaime, would you like a sample of this one? I can set some aside for the next package I send…as I’m sure there will be one. I just mailed the Berry Chocolate Earl Grey today or I would have put some in there. I didn’t expect such fast shipping!

Jaime

I’ll never say no to a sample of any of Frank’s teas! Sadly, my package hasn’t arrived yet.

Bio

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
