Mmm… This tea is good! I’m sure I’ve had it before at the B&N. But my mom gave me a 4oz tin that my grandma had given her as a gift and she hasn’t liked. The dry leaf smells exactly like Red Hots. The tea is lighter in color than I’d have thought and it smells only faintly of cinnamon and sweet. This tea tastes like sweet cinnamon! Which I love!
I only steeped it for four minutes cause the smell of the dry leaf was so strong and I didn’t want the tea to end up overpoweringly undrinkable cinnamon-y. However, the taste didn’t come out very strong. I think it could easily handle five minutes. The resteeping was lightly cinnamoned water.
I’m giving this tea a high (for me) 83 right off (80-90 = great range) and will likely raise it later on.
This tea is one steep only.
