The dry leaves of this tea smell (to me, and I’ll fully admit to being the odd person out) like grass and musty spice cupboards. I really wasn’t convinced, which is why I decided to try this one as the second tea of my order.
Steeping it (too hot, probably), it smells like cinnamon. Really delicious cinnamon. Sipping it, I get hit with WARMTH from the spices. There’s not a lot of apple, even though I saw a lot of apple in my steeping basket.
I want more apple.
As the tea is starting to cool, and I keep slurping it, it’s pretty good. Cinnamon SPICE, other notes in the background, a little green, a good texture. It’s not going to be a favourite, but I’ll have fun playing around with it. The flavours are most definitely fall, and it’s nice to have a cinnamon tea finally that’s spicy and not sweet and syrupy.
Still, I want more apple. Maybe in my next scoop.
