I finally got a chance to try this from Josie Jade who sent me a package full of goodies.
Boy does this sure smell like Red Hots when brewed?! I’m not a huge fan of them but it didn’t stop me from trying it. The dry leaves smell almost like licorice…VERY candy-like. Eesh.
The taste…is unique.
It’s VERY sweet and cinnamon-y. I don’t know if I’ll be able to finish it. I had to look on there website to see if any sugar was added and I guess it’s natural and comes from the Chinese cassia?? It might taste a bit better iced. It’s just kinda weird, honestly.
When you take a sip you get a little orange (it’s smooth and sweet) then it zips right to the cinnamon (spicy) then it goes a little sweet again back at the end. It sure is strange to say that THIS is a tea, lol. I don’t think I’ll be able to finish it. Would anybody like to try some??? It’s packed full of flavor for sure! And if you like Red Hots THIS tea is for you!
