This one was interesting. It was not what I expected at all as the flavor was all cinnamon and orange peel, no detectable taste of cardamom or other spices (even though they were clearly in the blend. The taste of this reminded me of Good Earth’s Sweet and Spicy tea only it had much more character. The black tea was bold and smooth and the cinnamon and orange peel blended perfectly. Even without sugar or cream, this tea was CREAMY. It was a little odd at first, I don’t even mean to say that was reminiscent of something creamy, the texture of the brewed tea was actually physically THICK and the taste matched in that department. Like I said, the closest thing I would compare this to is Good Earth’s sweet and spicy, but it’s on a much higher level as far as taste and quality go. Very much enjoyed this.
