Thanks to Doodleology, there was a tin of this in my mailbox today! Tea party was two days late this week because of a very full schedule, so this worked out well. The tea is fairly light in color, but the aroma is dark dark! It is a scent I associate with toasted walnuts, and one of my favorite characteristics to find in a oolong. At first I just wasn’t getting any reason for having cassia in the name, but after eating some seriously sweet goodies I took a sip and said, “There it is!”
The contrast now made me pick up a very light and delicate spicy flavor, certainly not as strong as actual cinnamon in the tea, just a hint, a mere breath, of spicy note. Very good! Thank you, Doodleology!
