I received this tea in a swap with Ottawa Tea… thanks!

It smelled like cinnamon in the bag, sweet and spicy at the same time. 195/3 min (plus another minute afterward because it was too weak)

The scent and flavor remind me a lot of Forever Nuts, however, in order to achieve that, I used nearly double the amount of tea than I normally do. I’ve found that some of Teavana’s teas just have so much stuff in them that the tea to stuff ratio is seriously off and requires adjustment. This tea is no exception.

Hot, it tastes of apples and cinnamon, but as it cools, it takes on more of a nutty sweetness, like an apple crumble or apple cobbler. It’s quite good, but I don’t think the cost it would take to produce a pot of this (with needing to double the tea amount) would be worth it in the long run.

Thank you for the heads up. I find a similar problem with their teas too.

It is frustrating. I went in to talk with them about it, moreso to be annoying than anything, and they acted like either my water or the temp or steep time were off. Then, at the end of the conversation, the woman told me that they have to adjust their tea amounts, too, or add more of TKY to some of the oolongs to get a more pronounced oolong base.
