I. Love. This.

Almost out of the small sample I purchased so I need to restock this. Such a sweet treat and needs nothing added to it. I never tire of cinnamon (even though I can never spell it right on the 1st try) and love the way it pops in my mouth. Of course, I do happen to be the type of person who can eat atomic fireballs all day long. This reminds me of a subdued version of an atomic fireball but without the intense fire.

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

I love those fireball candies! but I’m not sure I want the sweetness in my tea, hehe! On the one hand, this never gets bitter…one the other hand I couldn’t taste the tea base at all, and thought this was an herbal tea until I read the ingredients! I ended up giving all of mine to my mom, who loves it, so go figure :) different strokes for different folks!

I’ve got to try this in the loose tea—the bagged version was so dull and I really wanted to love it!

S

You know what Alannah, the version I tried was bagged, too, and it was really dull! Now you’ve inspired me to seek out the non-bagged version :)

How interesting that the bagged version seems dull! I didn’t find the loose leaf dull what-so-ever and I only steeped it for 3 minutes. Wonder what the difference is between the two.

S

Hmm, by dull, I meant that I couldn’t taste any black tea and that was kind of boring for me. But it was really, really strong! And super sweet, which I didn’t like. :’(

Ahh, I see. I was able to taste the black tea but it definitely wasn’t the foremost flavor. And I loved the sweetness of it. Very yummy to me. It is so neat how everyone’s tastes are different :)

S

nods It’s so neat seeing how people react differently to the same teas. It’s been fun finding out what my preferences are as well…I never thought I’d be the type to turn down sweeter teas, but there you have it!

S

Or, perhaps I’m just a superfreak, since I love the Aveda tea and that’s kind of sweet, too :)
