Right off the bat, I want this tea to be darker and don’t care for the orange smell. It needs to be purer cinnamon and warm spices.
Full disclosure: I don’t know how much tea I used. I have an enormous mug, so I just dumped a whole sample tin in a coffee filter and steeped it that way. Gheeeeetto…..
The taste is much better than the smell. The cinnamon IS actually like a cinnamon heart, in that it almost stings your tongue (in the best possible way.) I think I added too much sugar — a habit of mine. The body is heavier than I expected, and it’s almost coolingly refreshing, but warming at the same time.
I made the right decision using my entire sample and a huge mug. This is going to be a good afternoon.

I actually found that I felt unwell after drinking a travel mug (two ‘normal’ cups) recently – Just a bit too much cinnamon for the occasion, I suppose. I like the tea, but find it works best in smaller doses. Definitely does taste like cinnamon hearts though!

I’m a work-at-home mum. Seeing as how I work in the basement at the computer and am too lazy to brew myself a cup of coffee each day, tea has become my drink-of-choice.
