Today was a fun event – my gang of tea-loving friends gathered for our first Tea Exchange. Everyone brought and offered up the teas that they no longer like and get to choose from others’ unwanted teas for something new. Highlights: Nobody wants anything to do with DT’S Honeybee, Fantasy Island, Pina Colada and Sencha Pear.
In the midst of this, we all made some tea – Cinnamon Heart, Sweet Dreams, Buttercream for my friends, Hot Lips for me. I’m really happy I got to try this one.
First impressions: The most beautiful tea blend in the world. Fiery red flowers and peppercorns make it soooo pretty!! And, it smells exactly like the cinnamon heart candies. Kinda insane. The liquor was a surprising yellow and had the same aroma.
Taste: Cinnamon, swallow, and… hooah! That’s got some kick going down!
Loveability: Won’t be purchasing any of it before it’s gone. I don’t ever crave cinnamon in my teas, so even though it’s a very tasty tea, it would just end up being given away at our next Tea Exchange.
