This tea smells wonderful, with lots of cinnamon and other spices, although one of my coworkers said it reminded him of potpourri. The spice flavors aren’t overly strong, and I added a dash of sugar to help make them a little more pronounced. Overall, pretty decent. I think I need to try again with a shorter steep time though, as it has a somewhat bitter aftertaste.

Bio

I’m a 30-something IT professional that’s taken an interest in tea because I don’t much care for coffee, and I wanted an alternative to sodas for my caffeine intake.

Loose-leaf teas have opened my eyes to a whole new obsession. The process of proper heating & steeping appeals to the orderly engineer side of my personality.
