drank Cinnamon Heart by DAVIDsTEA
1621 tasting notes

Another tea from my sample pack. I figured that the evening after a big meal was the perfect time to try out a pu’erh like this. Its smell definitely lives up to its name – it’s almost identical to those spicy cinnamon heart candies the stores sell for Valentine’s Day. The flavour starts of well – sweet, cinammon-y and rather candy-like. But then it just fades off into nothing leaving a sort of weak, dirt-like aftertaste. I’m not really getting any of the earthy richness that generally characterizes a good pu-erh. It’s rather disappointing.

Too bad: I would think the cinnamon/pu combination would fit nicely.

Yeah, I was really keen on trying this one. I think the problem is with the pu-erh base that Davids Tea uses as I’ve been less than thrilled with some of their other flavoured pu-erhs as well.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
