This tea smells heavenly. The combination of spices makes me want to cuddle up by a fire and perhaps toast the mini marshmallows in this blend. There’s a little bit of an odd alcohol-like scent amid the spices, but it’s not overwhelming.
The tea steeps to a cloudy orange-brown, and the smell dwindles down to a light cinnamon scent. Sipping the tea, I taste cinnamon first, with a touch of sugar – the marshmallow or brittle, I assume. Although the tea is slightly creamy as is, I decided to try it out with some milk… And it’s incredible. A perfect, toasty winter blend for a cold night. The tea is sweet enough as is, and I find that adding sugar or honey changes the taste too much for my liking.
This tea has officially found a place among my favourites. Looks like I’ll have to buy a tin of this tomorrow! If you want a winter tea, something to look forward to on a snowy morning, this would be it. It’s the perfect blend of cinnamon, brittle and adorable marshmallows!
