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).

Thank you :) I got it in a large assorted box of teacups my Mother-in-Law no longer wanted

Resteep: 6 minutes or more, 6 ounce cup, not as strong but drinkable, yea! I like it when teabags handle a resteep, it’s an unexpected surprise.

Bio

I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
