This tea is finicky. The first few times were huge flops – the first cup too watery, the second one way overleafed. I found the sweet spot at around 2 tsp/8oz water, and then I was actually able to finish the whole cup.
The smell reminded me of that nutty cinnamon raisin bread toast, and that smell was actually pretty accurate to what I tasted, too. There was a bit of “grit” to the cup, which I’m guessing was the tiny cinnamon particles poking through, but it didn’t bother me. A nice tea to have once in a while, but not something I’d drink everyday. I think this would be great around the winter holidays – it has that cozy, brunch feel to it.
