This tea smells so delicious I want to eat it. The dry tea smells like sweet cinnamon candies, like hot tamales or hot lips. My favorite. I love cinnamon. The dry tea has a strong scent of cinnamon spice as well.

While brewing I did not hear any popping or snapping, which was disappointed. I even put my ear close enough to burn it on the steam from the tea. Oops. I’m OK.

The brewed tea smells of sweet cinnamon, spicey cinnamon, a hint of vanilla, maybe kind of nutty.

The tea tastes delicious. Ther is more of a sweet cinnamon taste and not so much a spicey taste. The sweetness is not overpowering. There is a hint of vanilla. I was a little disappointed it was not as spicey as I thought it would be. I love cinnamon spice, and occaisionally will just chew on a cinnamon stick. But in saying that, this is a delicious, well blended tea. I am sure it will now be one of my many favorites.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
