If you want cinnamon dust in a bag – this is your tea! For devoted fans of tea fannings and dust, you will not be disappointed! Let the exotic colors of the box mesmerize you into thinking you’re not in isle 7 of a mainstreet USA grocery store. Let the exotic pictures on the box transport you to a time when colored water with little-to-no taste was appreciated in more than just an oversized coffee mug with a happy face on it. Your imagination runs wild with the possibilities that someday this tea may join the legendary shelves of teas that carry a name recognized by legacy and grandeur. For now though, you’ll just have to settle for cinnamon-colored water. Dare to dream though! :)

This is amazing.

Great yet razor-sharp review of a tea I really like and yes, I’m a fan of dust. I’ll take the box off of your hands if you don’t want it.

Marie

Don’t get me wrong. The stuff’s in my cupboard too, it just shouldn’t advertise itself as quality tea is all I’m sayin’. :)

Hilarious! Sadly, my life is aisle 7 of mainstream USA, LOL :) Thanks for the funny review!

Marie

Mine too! Although these last couple of years I’ve really amped up my online ordering of tea just get access to a greater variety and higher quality of tea. I get frustrated when companies advertise flavorful tea and they know they’re selling the crumbs of the good stuff. I don’t think it’s fair. If there is a tiger on the box, I expect a tiger flavor to jump out of the cup and gimmie a nice tiger roar. :)

Haha, I’ve just recently stopped my ordering of tea online. I got one bad, bad batch of a Sencha, one that I’ve ordered for years. It caused me to lay in bed wide awake, eyes wide open with an above average pulse ALL NIGHT! I tried another cup around a week later and got met with the same results, zero hours of sleep. Perhaps they stock “Sencha” right next to “Speed” and had a little mix-up.

It’s fannings and dust for me, from here on out! I still reach for the ol’ Tiger in the morning. Nothing wakes you up quite like lighting your tongue on fire.

Marie

Serdie, I totally understand. You know that tends to be why tea wholesalers tend towards selling blended teas. The tea harvest changes from year to year just like wine and is compeletely influenced by the environment. A blend can help mask the subtle changes from year to year. I support you in your decision, yet encourage you to keep an open mind for an occasional high quality loose leaf cuppa. :)

Bio

Intergalactic tea traveler. Will stop this side of the Milky Way for piping hot black tea in a fine bone china cup with milk and sugar. Add a tea sandwich and some sweet morsels and I just might stay a while. Music, Photography, Cooking, Art, Spirituality, and the Paranormal are preferred topics of conversation.

Tea Preferences: ALWAYS loose leaf over bagged fannings or god-forbid, dust. I do bag my own loose leaf, and will resort to pre-bagged black or herbal if I have to. Black tea is always taken with milk and sugar, and herbal may escape the dairy and sweet to thrive on it’s own in the cup on occasion.

Allow yourself the possibility of a life without bagged fannings or dust – and open your heart to all that – that is loose leaf. You’ll immediately discover where ALL the flavor has escaped to. It’s like a universe of flavor you never knew existed. ;)
