As previously mentioned, the teas I ordered don’t seem to be very fragrant, save for a couple, and this is one of the ones which lack in fragrance. Maybe a touch of spice but giving the plethora of positive raves about S&V, especially regarding the aroma, I’m surprised this doesn’t have more oompf.
Taste-wise, it’s pretty tasty. A definite apple cinnamon. It reminds me of sitting at the counter as a kid whilst my grandma would make cinnamon twists, rolling the dough in a bed of cinnamon and brown sugar. It’s like that with a touch of apple. I’m not really getting cakey notes from this, though.
Some Steepsterites have suggested overleafing S&V teas so I’m going to start doing that after the first round of sipping is done.
