I only started my pouch of this on monday, and it’s almost gone. I think that, more than anything, shows just how much I love it. It’s been a cold week, so the idea of a warm cinnamon bun has been really appealing. Since there were none to hand, this tea was a more than ideal substitute. I’ve been brewing it for between 4 and 5 minutes, by and large, and I can’t get over the fact that it tastes almost exactly like the real thing. The smell is the first thing I noticed. In the bag, it’s quite strongly cinnamon, and I could see the quantity of chips in here. In practice, though, the cinnamon is remarkably delicate, there’s a sweetness that’s reminiscent of icing, and there’s something…something in the background that’s maybe just reminding me of pastry. I picked this out after giving it a longer brew time on friday — before then I wasn’t really getting the bun element at all. I think I’m going to take some sugar to work next week and see what that does. As honeybush goes, though, this is going to be another of my favourites, alongside Strawberry Pie. It’s amazing stuff, particularly for autumn.
