I tried this tea in store so can’t give specifics on the amount of tea used or the temperature at which it was brewed. I allowed this tea to steep for the time it took me to walk from the store to home (about ten minutes), so it was stronger than most might enjoy. It was great for me though, as I really enjoy cinnamon. It has notes of vanilla in the smell, which I think brings out the cinnamon taste. If you simply enjoy a spicy cinnamon, without many additional spices (like the ones in chai), then you’ll like this tea.
