Oh dear. While a taste of African Autumn cut down my wishlist for Harney’s, a taste of this just added to it. I love, love, love cinnamon, but I’m also very much in love with my Cinnamon Chai from DavidsTea, so I didn’t think I’d be tempted to order this one. I was wrong! So very, very wrong. It’s not better or worse than DT, it’s just different in a wonderfully yummy way. The cinnamon scent and taste are strong, which means I probably won’t be allowed to steep it while De is home (she hates the stuff). Kristin, I owe you big time for this sample…or maybe I should be mad at you for adding to my list…I haven’t decided yet! But this is definitely a tea to try if you like cinnamon! It tastes like a stick of Big Red gum, which makes me happy because I have fond memories of that gum.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
