This is a lovely tea. I’ve had the sweet & spicy herbal tea, but I don’t recall ever trying the “original” with black tea. The major spice is cinnamon, but it is a nice balance of spicy flavors and sweetness without sugar added.
My only complaint is that it tastes almost identical to the herbal tea – the black tea flavor doesn’t really seem to come through very much if at all. That’s not such a bad thing, but it would be nice to have a little more tea flavor in there. My purpose for this tea is to have another option for a bagged morning tea (with caffeine), and this will fill that role nicely.
