Sometimes, in the morning, I need something a little stronger. This was a good fit. It is pretty dark, and the cinnamon flavor is quite nice. My only major complaint was the “sweet”. I taste no sweet. It actually took me a couple drinks to read the label and realize there was even stevia in it. I still need two packets- my same amount for unsweetened teas. Over all, its a solid, kickmybuttfirstthing kind of tea.
