drank Red Hot Cinnamon by 52teas
4231 tasting notes

This is actually so much better than I was expecting it to be! I expected this to be similar to some of the other cinnamon teas I’ve tasted (which I do like a lot), but this is different. The tea is a much more pronounced flavor, it doesn’t taste like a candied tea… it tastes like tea with a bit of candy… if that makes sense.

But what I am especially enjoying about this is that I can really taste the fruit notes of the Nilgiri in this blend. It is so good!

I totally know what you mean. I expected not to like this but it totally surprised me and tasted nothing like what I thought it would taste like. It was surprising good. Probably wouldn’t purchase more but would finish the bag. I guess I shouldn’t judge a tea by it’s cover. That and never underestimate the blend powers of Frank. :-)

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
