drank Cinnamon Heart by DAVIDsTEA
1350 tasting notes

I’m almost a little happy to discover I still don’t like this tea, because that means it gets to go to a good home with Indigobloom and get out of my cupboard! This was in the first batch of teas I ordered online from DT before I knew what I like and what I didn’t. I’ve since discovered that I don’t really care for Pu-erhs. But I adore cinnamon hearts, so I thought I’d give this a go.

It does taste like cinnamon hearts, yes, but more like cinnamon hearts I dropped in the backyard, brushed off, and ate anyway. I remember buying this and trying their Cinnamon Chai Rooibos around the same time and wishing this tea tasted like that tea. I remember mixing them at one point, but it just didn’t work. The pu-erh is too off-putting for me. I’ve always felt guilty about this one because I fought to get it in the cart, as the wife hates cinnamon flavored things. Now I feel good knowing it’s going to someone who will truly appreciate it. Enjoy!

Edit: I only drank about half of my cup, but I’m feeling lightheaded and shaky and flushed…I don’t know if it was this tea that did it, but it’s worth noting. I have eaten today and the most strenuous thing I’ve done is chop potatoes.

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.
