Holy cinnamon! Definitely that’s what I get from this tea (sample graciously provided by MissB). Lots and lots of cinnamon.
As it cools, it gets sweeter. Must be the “bits”! A bit of creamy icing comes out, and perhaps a bit of breadiness, but it remains kind of thin and lackluster in flavor. I mean, it’s drinkable, it’s decently tasty, but it just doesn’t do it for me. I can think of so many nice bready black teas that would be awesome with this (or maybe a bready, moderately roasted oolong!) instead of this tasteless black base. As before, my experience with Della Terra is all flavoring, no tea. Well, this is why I wanted (small!) samples of a bunch of them, to try a wider range of them without committing to their (rather too large for me) samplers.
