Eh. I bought this tea in my efforts to try all the holiday CS teas (except Sweet Harvest Pumpkin, because pumpkin tea doesn’t appeal to me and I don’t like stevia). I like gingerbread, but I know that dessert teas that try to mimic sweets are never as satisfying as the real thing.
This didn’t taste like gingerbread to me at all. It tasted like cinnamon. A LOT of cinnamon. It tasted sharp and dry. I didn’t really even taste much ginger in this at all, which sucks because I actually really like ginger in pretty much anything else— Thai food, sushi, Bengali/Indian food, and, yes, gingerbread. However, I didn’t sweeten this because I was actually trying some of cartomancer’s cup, and he hardly ever wants sweetener in his cup. To the tea’s credit, cartomancer, his mother, and his grandmother all seem to like it, so I decided not to just dole out a bad rating when my experience showed that 3 out of 4 people who tried it liked it. His mother had it once plain and once with sugar and milk. Maybe I’ll give it another try with some sugar and milk so I can give it a real rating. I think the cinnamon was just too intense for me, though, so I doubt I’ll try it again. I think I’ll just give the three other boxes I ordered to cartomancer.
