This one came from the bestsellers sampler of the Zoomedweebies kickstarter. This one has been on my shopping list for quite a while so I am glad I have had a chance to try it.

The dry tea smells like cinnamon cake, or cinnamon pastry, or a cinnamon bun. Its cinnamon with some kind of sweet bread mixed in.

The brewed tea smells exactly like a cinnamon bun, I am getting a strong cream cheese smell.

The tea tastes like the cinnamon bun/pastry/bread but I am not getting any cream cheese or any other icing. It is still very good. I think next cup I am going to add some sugar to see what happens. The taste is definitely becoming more distinct as it cools.

Edit: Brewed again and this time added some brown rock sugar. It was ok. I don’t think it really changed the taste profile at all. This one is reminding me a bit more of a Christmas spice cake/cookie with the cinnamon and spice.

I just ordered the best sellers sampler last night, I was going to try to wait but there are too many that have been on my list for too long :) happy to hear this one is good!

I think this sampler is great. All of the blends are good. I am finding there is between 2-4 tsp of tea in each depending on the type of tea. So it is not too much but it is enough to try it to see if you like it.

Yeah it sounds perfect to me, I debated just getting a few bags of the ones that sound good but it takes me so long to finish 1 oz bags that I might as well just get samples, and try 12 kinds!

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.
