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.
