I was expecting a stronger taste of cinnamon with a tea that calls itself “Three cinnamon”. It’s a pleasant, airy tea, but I feel as though it’s lacking. Nice for one tea bag, but I’m glad I don’t have a box of this. I am, however, happy that it’s not a “hot” cinnamon.
I was really excited to try this tisane, and I had had my eye on it for a while. Finally I decided to take the plunge and make the purchase…….and man was I disappointed. I love chamomile, lavender, elderflower and rose….and so I loved the idea of this tea. But it was so weak. It tasted like nothing. Maybe I got a bad box or something, but I ended up using 2 teabags in 10oz of boiling water and never took them out, and the taste was very very faint. Quite disappointing. I will be returning this tisane.

Not sure what I expected from this tea, but I should have expected exactly what I got – cinnamon. I guess I expected something like a chai but it isn’t spicy, it’s like a sweet cinnamon water. I’m not explaining it very well but I really did like it! I overstepped this one by like 15 minutes – I was applying for an internship this summer and got caught up it in but it was still really nice! added some milk like I do to my chais and a tsp of sugar and it tasted like a non sickly sweet cinnamon bun! A pleasant surprise!
Edit: re steeped to see if it’d be any good and it’s just as flavourful! I actually prefer this cup because it’s actually hot, having not forgotten it :P
Edit Edit: If anyone has this tea and doesnt like it, I totally accept donations, hahaha – it is impossible to find where I live and costs a FORTUNE to ship!
(For anyone wondering? Didn’t get the internship… sadness)
Backlogging from last night.
I don’t drink a lot of floral herbals, but I need to reconsider because this was nice and a pleasant way to wind down at the end of the day. I could pick out the elder-flower, lavender, chamomile, and rose but I enjoyed the tea more when I quit thinking about it and let the flavors blend together. The licorice root gave small notes of sweetness, but thankfully it didn’t dominate the tea. All in all a nice little cup.
I left this to steep at least an hour, in the hopes it would make me feel better. Oh gosh, this is a great ginger tea. It’s very spicy, with several layers to the heat and flavors. Mind you, you’d have to love turmeric to love this as well – it’s almost more a turmeric tea than a ginger one at this point. Regardless, I love it – I think my new favorite ginger tea.
This is a mild, floral tea that I would probably enjoy if not for the Licorice. I’m beginning to get the idea that Licorice in any amount just ruins a blend for me. I’ll have to start checking for it and making a point to avoid it in the future.
Flavors: Flowers, Licorice, Sweet
I have to admit I’m not a huge fan of tulsi – I’m drinking this because I have only 1 bag, so it qualifies as a sipdown.
As tulsi teas go, it’s not bad – the flavour is smoother than others I’ve tried. And I really do appreciate having caffeine-free options in my cupboard. But, easy sipdowns are easy sipdowns!
Thanks to Jude for sending me this in a swap.
As the color, dull
So the taste uninspiring
Why do I lic’rice?
Why do I keep brewing the random teas I’ve been given without first looking at their ingredients? xP Well, here I am with another licorice tea. At least no one can say that I never try them. Here goes…
The dry bag smells yummy, a bit of spice (ginger?) and sweet (marshmellow root? Not too licorice-y…).The liquor is a vaguely cloudy dull goldenrod.
With my first sip….I am hit with a storm of flavors…and a sickly sweet remains in my mouth. Nope, can’t stand it. The initial flavor is interesting, but not worth the licorice-sweet aftertaste.
A straight-forward, comforting, smooth cinnamon tea made from three different types of cinnamon bark. This tastes like a high quality tea with high quality ingredients. The cinnamon flavour is pure tasting and thankfully the licorice flavour does not overpower the cinnamon (not a licorice fan in tea.) This cinnamon tea is really well done and if you like cinnamon, I would recommend trying it.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Licorice
Well….this was weird. My co-worker and I got a box of this at Mother’s Market today and tried it when we got back to work. After the first sip, she looked up and said, “I think I just drank somebody’s grandma….” Now, that was clearly concerning. Turns out that the perfumey/floral aspect of this tea sort of smells like the quintessential grandmother’s house….like floral-scented sachets mixed with mustiness from the stuff that’s been sitting untouched all over the house. I don’t know. That makes it sound like a terrible tea and yet…there is something super comforting about it. I’m not sure which of the three main flowers gave me this whole impression. I know now that licorice root isn’t my favorite…that weird sweetness that just coats the back of your throat. Not a huge fan of that part. But, overall, I wouldn’t mind drinking a small cup of this on rainy days.
Flavors: Floral, Perfume, Sweet
I’m surprised at how much I’m enjoying this tisane! I’ve always had it in my mind that I’m a decided non-fan of fennel and licorice in teas, but I’m realizing that maybe what I really don’t like is when those ingredients are used to add sweetness in blends where they really don’t belong. Anyway, this is quite strong on the fennel, and rather sweet. I could’ve done with more cardamom—I love cardamom—but I’ll take what I can get. I’ve been trying to expand my decaf collection lately, and this is something I can see keeping around.
I had this tea last time I was backpacking. A perfect way to both start and end the day. I should really note that I’m a ginger lover. I love strong, hot ginger flavors. This fit the bill very nicely. Invigorating and relaxing at the same time.
Flavors: Ginger, Spicy
