This is much better than Della Terra’s Oatmeal Raisin Cookie. I was beginning to think that pastry-inspired tea was just not for me. I didn’t love this, but it did give me hope that these kind of teas might be ok.
The best thing about this tea is that you could still taste the base under the cinnamon. It was rich and dark. It was also really smooth. There was a note that tasted like raisins, but turned a little more to chocolate as it cooled. The cinnamon was nice, not fake tasting. There was something artificial that I couldn’t quite put my finger on. It was kind of like that dreaded soy lethicin taste I hate, but not quite as strong. That’s the one thing that didn’t make this tea a win for me.
