I’m finally trying this tea thanks to SimplyJenW! I’ve been eying it for a long time now. I love cinnamon and caffeine free is always good since I like to have tea in the evening and tasty caffeine free teas are not that easy to come by.

The first time I made this, I used about the same amount of leaf as I normally would for a rooibos and it was STRONG! It was so sweet and cinnamon-y and spicy and slightly orangey. Tasty! I can see this working well in blends… I’ll need to think on it.

Tonight, I made it with half the leaf and it is much better! I can actually drink this normally because the flavor isn’t super intense. Still sweet and tasty and I think it’s actually making me a bit sleepy. :) Great evening tea!

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
