Dry, this tea smells just like an oatmeal raisin cookie. Yum! Once brewed, the cinnamon aspect shines through a little more. It smells really good.
Taste wise, this one is pretty good. I’m getting the cinnamon, vanilla, and a bit of raisin in every sip. I’m also picking up a bit of the brown sugar flavoring (makes it taste a little like a cookie) and just a hint of the black tea base. I don’t know if I’d say it tastes like an oatmeal raisin cookie. More like a cinnamon raisin. Overall, though, it’s good.
Might try this one with milk next time and see what I get…

Note: Tastes better once it has cooled off a bit.

Bio

Started brewing loose leaf tea about two years ago, so I’m still relatively new to the scene. Excited to share my experiences and learn more from everyone on here!

I’ve found I Prefer:

Oolong Teas
White Teas
Smooth Black Teas
Flavored White Teas
Flavored Black Teas (depending on the base tea)
Flavored Oolong Teas
Pu-erh’s
Certain Herbals/Tisanes

I’ve found I Dislike:

Bitterness/Astringent Teas
Strong Floral Teas
Fruit Tisanes (at least hot)

Green Teas, Matcha, and Rooibos teas tend to be hit or miss with me. I guess it depends on the tea and my mood that day.

That being said, I’ll give anything a shot!

When I’m not brewing/sipping tea, I’m usually reading, listening to music, studying for classes, or in the summer, kayaking/camping/hiking! I also enjoy a good movie now and then. I’ve got quite the collection going. It almost rivals my tea collection! ;)

I’m currently searching for a nice, “non-grassy” tasting green tea that works well cold brewed. If you think you’ve found it, just send me the name/company and I’ll check it out.

Happy steeping!
