Gloomy, rainy … this calls for some Hot Cinnamon Spice! I believe this is my first of the season! What more can I say about a tea I drink at least once a week all fall and winter? The proof is in the 1 lb bags I go through!

It provoked a conversation at work about how we need to order yet another big bag to split for the coming months … which made me peek at the Harney site … which made me realize it has a redesign! It looks quite nice – take a look :)

As you may remember, this one is way too hot for me! I am pretty excited, though. I just made a batch of Cinnamon Dolce syrup like Starbucks has, and I want to try adding it to tea, probably a nice Ceylon!

JacquelineM

Oooh, how do you make that?

Hesper June

Oh, it does look very sleek!
I have been wanting to order this tea for one of my winter teas.
But, I have to wait a month since I just placed 2 tea orders recently;)

Boil one cup water, one cup brown sugar, one teaspoon Vietnamese cinnamon or other strong cinnamon. Easy! This is what they use to make their Caramel Apple Cider. If you order it with whip (we don’t) they swirl whipped cream on top and swirl Carmel syrup on top of that. I have used it in the cider and loved it. I can’t wait to try it in tea! And actually, Starbucks uses Treetop Apple Juice, not cider. It is delicious and smells and tastes like apple pie.

Hesper: you will probably love Harney Hot Cinnamon. I used to keep it on hand just because so many people love it, even unsweetened it is almost too sweet because of the types of cinnamon! But it tastes like Red Hots to me, and I have never cared for them, if you like them, you will love this tea! I am just a wimp!

Hesper June

I do like red hots:)
The syrup recipe sounds tasty too!

JacquelineM

ashmanra – that sounds amazing and I can think of a million uses (ice cream drizzle being what instantly popped into my head!). Thank you!

Hesper June – people tend to love or hate this one – I love it! It cheers us all up at work.

Mmmmm….drizzly ice cream!

Not to sound whiny, but I think I liked the old site better! Maybe it is just what I’m used to?

I like the organization of this site – it replicates how I like to look for teas. I also like the bigger photos where you can see the color of the tea liquor too :)

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
