First ever rating! Little nervous but jumping in with both feet…
This tea was a gift. I had been eyeballing it for a while, but wouldn’t make the leap so my friend did it for me. It’s scent in the bag was very nice. Very spicy and warm. Initial sip, however, struck me as slightly bitter. A mild sweetness overrode the bitterness a bit as I continued, but something felt missing. The cinnamon was extremely prominent and even slightly biting as I swallowed. Possibly the most curious thing about this tea was it’s after effect – a slight numbing sensation, not unlike a very mild analgesic throat spray.
I don’t think I’d recommend this tea without fair warning. I will likely taste again a couple times. Maybe a second or third visit will yield different results?
