Just sipping my sample here…
You can smell mostly cinnamon but you can tell the vanilla is there too. The cinnamon smell reminded me of the cinnamon hearts that you eat around Valentine’s Day.
As for taste, it’s true that rooibos flavour is the main taste but I’m in love with rooibos right now so I’m okay with it. The cinnamon is strong enough to taste it too, and I find the cinnamon taste lingers in my mouth for a few seconds. Vanilla isn’t there so much – I can’t notice it in the taste – only the smell.
If I place another order with ROT, I will include this in my purchase. I just purchased some tea from them so we’ll have to see if I order again while this holiday tea is still in stock.

I order tea for the bookstore I work in. We weren’t able to get this in because they were already out. I don’t know how much they had to sell directly, but I know they were running low. I prefer Cinnamon Orange and it isn’t seasonal.

I just checked and you are right, they are sold out! They are recommending Cardamon Cinnamon as an alternative. They say the Cardamon is like ginger and pine. Not sure if I’ll try it. The Cinnamon Orange sounds alright but is the cinnamon flavour similar to dream by the fire? I love the strong cinnamon. I will see if there are tasting notes for these other teas now. Thanks for your input, brianfuchs.
