I. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. Cinnamon. When cinnamon hearts come out around valentines day, I stock up for the year – even though they never last that long. I love the taste of the cinnamon but also how it burns your tongue. Red hots are my all time favorite candy- like the real red hots that you really can’t find anywhere anymore.
This tea smells so delicious. It is exactly like cinnamon hearts. Mmmmm. High hopes!
The tea is very disappointing when compared to the smell. It tastes like very blunted cinnamon. There is no spice or burn to it. There is a bit of spice in the aftertaste, but it is more generic and not necessarily cinnamon. There is a very, very faint sweetness, more prominent in the aftertaste. Also in the aftertaste, I am getting a very fake, or artificial taste. Kind of like some kind of artificial candy coating that has no flavour.
I do not feel like the cinnamon is mixing well with the pu-erh.
So far my experience with these David Tea’s flavoured pu-erh’s is that the flavour seems to be in the aftertaste or when cool, but no so much when its hot.
