Say what, no notes on this tea?
Am I the only one who was super curious of the pop rocks in this tea? OMG POP ROCKS!

DRY: Red hots – super spicy cinnamon smell!
STEEPED: smokey black and cinnamon smell. Yes, I heard the pop rocks going off while it steeped! Sounded more like bubbles popping.

TASTE: Spicy cinnamon, sweet and warm. Nice full body from the black tea base. Tastes just like those spicy cinnamon hearts on valentines day. There is a powerful cinnamon candy finish, with a hit of almost bitter loads of cinnamon just like the candies. The cinnamon tingles my tongue as an after effect.
Quite sweet on its own, does not need sugar I think.

COMMNENTS:
Liquid Candy tea!
This reminds me of DAVIDsTea’s “Hot Lips” but much much better. The sweet finish makes this tea more like a cup of candy than a straight cinnamon blasting. The pop rocks were a fun bonus to this tea.

This would be a fun latte (I always think that). If you like spicy cinnamon and sweet teas, seek this one out!

Bio

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk. I am also a crochet and knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

To contact me for reviews, check out details at OolongOwl.com/about or email me at [email protected]

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 573 Teas – August 2015.
