I don’t know if you’ve ever made those weird orange things where you stick whole cloves all over it into the peel. If you have, then you can imagine exactly what this tea smells like. It brought me back to the third grade.

It is a spicy scent, but fortunately, I’m not picking up on an overkill of spices in the taste, which often loses the tea. I can still taste the sencha, which is nice, because for once I didn’t oversteep it. I went with 175/2 min and it came out as a really nice cup of tea. I have to say that I put off trying this one for a couple of days, not being a spiced tea lover, but it surprised me. It’s not fruity in the tropical fruit way that I normally love. It is a homey, down-to-earth flavor. It’s interesting that the ingredients say cinnamon, but I’m tasting clove. The apple isn’t a fresh taste, rather more of a deep, baked taste. It comes together well.

I’m a middle school teacher of French, Spanish, ESL and reading intervention. I’m also a mom to two young children.

I’ve always been a tea lover. When I lived in France during college, I really loved the tisanes. Over the past couple of years, I’ve branched off into loose teas. I’m not very knowledgeable about teas, but I’m really loving the learning process!
