I’ve been on my break for 3 days so far, and this is the first afternoon that I’ve had the time to sit for a cup of tea! Since it is the afternoon, and I’m home (where the milk and sugar lives!) I wanted to try something froofy, flavored, new to me, and compatible with milk and sugar.
This one stood out since cinnamon and pears sound very hoilday-ish to me! I was excited but scared. Pear flavoring can be so fake, and cinnamon…well, I’m a big fan of Hot Cinnamon Spice, and I can’t imagine any cinnamon tea usurping that one as my favorite. The other scary thing was the tea is very broken/CTC looking. I decided on a 4 minute steep and hoped for the best.
I was rewarded with a nicely spiced, very juicy and natural pear flavor! I wouldn’t call the tea complex, but it’s very drinkable and not bitter. The cinnamon is not hot. Think mulled wine spice, not red hots. I like! Very nice in the afternoon, and extremely nice as a Fall/Winter treat. I’m gravitating less and less toward flavored teas these days, but gosh, it’s comforting as can be to have something sweet, milky, and spiced every now and again!
