This was part of the Tea Forte Winter Collection I got as a holiday gift. This is the last flavor!
This is a nice spicy red tea (I can’t do caffeine after 6 pm). The cinnamon really dominates and you need to look for the other flavors for you to recognize their presence.
Perhaps I should have steeped it longer? I also can’t smell or taste the lemongrass. I could see it though.
Post-Steep Additives: lactose free fat free milk
Made it creamier less water and masked the rooibos woodiness (not necessarily a positive).
