To add to what many have already said, this tea is beautiful. Rich, dark tea leaves with tasty sugar crystals and glittering gold balls. Gorgeous! There are glittery sparkles that transfer to the actual water! This looks magical and I haven’t even had a sip yet!
The cinnamon scent becomes more tame while the tea steeps and blends well with a nice black tea aroma.
The cinnamon and the black tea blend seamlessly into a smooth flavor. I actually really like this aspect about the tea & haven’t tasted anything like it before. Despite the presence of sugar crystals, the tea isn’t overly sweet. I suppose looking at the tea, I was expecting a bolder cup. It’s surprisingly mild.. almost maybe a little too mild. This is still a very warming and interesting cup of tea, though. Thanks so much to Ashika for a sample of this!
