First I just want to say that I am loving my new electric tea kettle. IT IS THE BEST THING EVER!!! I can now quickly brew tea to the temp that I want, and brew it in my room. Woooo! Now to see how long it will last. I’m hoping it will.

I got this tea yesterday along with my new moriage dragonware teapot

and Khiro shock pads for my long board; I accidentally ordered hard risers instead of shock pads with my board >_> Now I just have to wait 2 more days for it to come in………

Ok on to the tea:
The dry leaf smells yummy. I can’t really describe the flavor other then sweet. It makes me just want to eat it out of the bag. The brew it self smells just as sweet. The first time I drank this sweeten with just light agave, it was ok. I got more of the flavors when it was cooler. This morning I used a some more leaf, then I added a small spoonful of brown sugar and a little bit of light agave….. Yes! This taste just like french toast! The cinnamon is in good proportion too. It’s present, but not dominating. The buttery after taste is awesome as well. It even has this bread/pastry taste there too. I can’t wait to see how this does as a latte. I can see vanilla sugar working great with this as well.

P.S. I should get some dark agave. That would be perfect in this.

Just love it and might keep as a staple

Really liked it, and makes a above average cup

Is good, but might not have a lot of complexity or wow factor. Is pretty average

It’s ok, but not great. Might need added ingredients or tweaking, and is below average.

Would only if nothing else was available. Would not recommend to someone.
