You know those “How’d they do that?” shows? I would like to see one on THIS tea. How someone can put cinnamon and completely kill a tea (for me, anyway) and someone else — say, sTEAp Shoppe — can do amazing things with cinammon, like this here tea.

Now this is what I would call delicately spiced. There’s cinnamon in here, duh!, but it doesn’t bludgeon the rest of the stuff to the point that you just feel you’re sucking on a cinnamon stick. I’m interested in also knowing how they get the bread taste. In wine, you know they use yeast, for example in Chardonnay. I doubt they use yeast in tea so … how?

In any event, delicious tea. I was worried maybe cinnamon in tea is not for me. Clearly this proves it wrong. As for the tasting note, you don’t need one from me. Just remember your last Cinnabon. That’s what your tea will taste like.
The End.

PS. Thank you to the amazing Sil for sharing this. Awesome choice.

Mmm. I could totally go for a Cinnabon though. It’s not a complete replacement, although it’s fairly close.

JustJames

do they use taro root at all? because that has a cake flavour to it. it’s frequently used in bubble tea and makes an awesome cakey base.

Sil

glad you liked it!

TastyBrew

From what others have said, the bready flavor comes from the puerh. On it’s own i don’t really like puerh, but in this its so perfect. Also it resteeps a million times over.

Terri HarpLady

I still want to try this one…

TastyBrew

Ok Terri – lets make this happen! I’ll pm you.

Sil

terri…did i really not send any your way??? i could have sworn i added it.

JustJames

i’ll be placing an order. the comments have been filling up my feed and it’s making me hungry.

Sil

fair warning just james, i’m finding that a lot of the other teas taste similar to one another…which is fine if you like them and less fine if you find you don’t lol

Nxtdoor

Justjames if you hate it, I don’t want it on my head!

Terri HarpLady

nope sil, I never got THAT one, just lots of other yummy samples.

Sil

blah. if tastybrew doesn’t hit you up, just remind me to add some to your package. I’ve got a collection of terri teas now :)

Terri HarpLady

Tasty’s gonna send me some.
Meanwhile, I have to confess, I haven’t sent your box yet…first I ran out of baggies, then a busy weekend, then excuses #7, 11, & 13 through 17, plus 97. ;)

Sil

no issues if you want to hold on to it until like june 24th lol then it’ll be here sometime after we get back from vacation. :) Our other order still hasn’t arrived here yet so no rush on my front.

JustJames

ROFL… i blame no one for my tea decisions but myself! unless someone possessing this tea would like to swap, in which case PM me.

Cavocorax

Hey – JustJames – I could send you some, but it might not mail out until the weekend!

JustJames

i’m game! snoop in my cupboard and let me know what you want…. i also have an order from butiki on its way if you want a list of what’s coming!

Profile

Bio

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

NOTE: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity. Home improvements, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
