I am sorta sad to see that people seem to not share the love that I have for this tea. It is one of my absolute favorites.
The leaves smell like true cinnamon sticks, not like the candy but like the real thing. You can see the pieces of cinnamon stick in the leaves.
I have tried brewing it in different temperatures and steeping times. It does better in hotter water and 3 minute steeping time. Any longer and the black tea becomes a bit overwhelming and bitterness takes over.
The resulting liquor is sweet smelling and tastes just as cinnamony as it smells. It has a thick feel to it, almost syrupy in a good way. I like it best sweetened with brown sugar or splenda.
It is perfect on a rainy day or after a tough night. If you like cinnamon you will like this tea. I have been drinking it for years now and I still love it.

The only negative to this tea is that it does seem to eat at plastics… I think that the cinnamon flavoring is a bit strong for plastics to deal with and if the leaves are in contact with plastic for extended periods of time, it will eventually eat though it… So, best get a metal tin! : )

I love tea and have since I was a little girl. Once I could buy my own tea, I began to explore and learn about the extensive and delicious world of tea!

Also, love my French Bulldog (named Sencha…) and my tea oblivious boyfriend. I enjoy ice skating (I am a part time coach), reading, writing, baking, running, and lots of sweets!

My favorite teas tend to be on the sweeter side. Both flavored and plain teas are great to me. Currently going through a flavored tea phase. Enjoying it greatly! : )
