drank Hot Cinnamon Spice by Harney & Sons
2383 tasting notes

Thanks again to Jenn for sending me a sample of this. I LOVE cinnamon and this tea certainly packs a wallop. It is like drinking red hots candy! Sweet and cinnamony and hot and spicy all at once. Definitely seems like a winner for moi.

A few minutes later: I’m not sure my stomach is going to agree with my assessment of the tea. I am getting nauseated. Are there flames coming out of my ears?? I feel like I need to lie down and have a glass of water, geez! Downgraded a lot for the nausea factor… boo. I do love the taste of this but if it makes me ill, I’m afraid it’s got to go in the yuck category… :(

I had the same experience with this tea. Weird… I really liked how it tasted by my stomache hated it. Too bad : (

Try it with a light snack before giving up on it. Red Hot tea is just too cool to abandon without a fight.

I don’t have any left so no more experiments for moi.

I have a few stories about tea not sitting well with me too. A couple times the samples were new,or just from old samples, or from "stupid " here issues, which left me bowing to the porcelain god! :))

Their Vanilla Comoro did this to me last time I had it, boooo. I’ve been too scared to try again.

@aisling – weird. I wouldn’t think vanilla would have that effect?

I think it was the tea base more than the vanilla.

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
