I recently moved into my new place, and my new roommate has a box of this so I thought I’d give it a go since she said I could help myself.

The first time I tried this the other day, I actually enjoyed it. I let it steep for about four or five minutes then took the bag out, and it was like liquid cinnamon heart candies. I don’t recall any other spice. If they’re there, then they’re clearly being drowned out by the cinnamon.

I thought I’d try it one more time now, and I left the tea bag in the water for longer, more like eight minutes, and boy, is it abrasive. It’s like I dumped a few teaspoons of cinnamon powder into my mug and swirled it around in the boiled water. It tastes a lot drier this time around, as it lost its candy sweetness. It’s also burning my lips this time.

Hey, I like spices, but this is a little too single note for my liking. Neither the nutmeg nor cardamom showed up to the party. I has a sad.
