I enjoyed the appearance of this tea and was excited by the little golden balls and the whole cloves.
I wasn’t crazy about the smell…put me in mind of cinnamon jelly bellys…which was probably the only flavour of jelly belly I didn’t like. I’m beginning to wonder if I actually like cinnamon at all. When I think of rice pudding, or apple pie or anything like that I feel cinnamon should be an ingredient, and I throw powder and whole cinnamon sticks into into many Indian dishes so I would say yes I like cinnamon but if I come across any cinnamon flavoured sweets or gums when I travel abroad I think it’s disgusting. I always throught I liked cinnamon but not ‘fake cinnamon’ but I think the truth is I like a little cinnamon with rasins or apples.
Back to the tea…it had a beautiful appearance while brewing…shimmery gold. When I added milk the shimmers disappeared and it revealed itself to be a pale weak tea that still smelled like a cinnamon jelly belly. That is how it tasted too.

Made as a chai latte as others have advised (2 tsp tea in 1/4 cup boiling water, tsp brown sugar, pan of semi-skimmed milk – allow to infuse 4 mins)
Delicious.
Wish the spices were a little stronger but overall really nice.

I made this as a tea latte because I didn’t like the idea of marshmallows floating around in water.
It was pleasant, but like others have said the allspice is very strong and overpowers the rest of the flavours.
There are nicer teas to use in a tea latte so even though it is nice I wouldn’t buy again

It didn’t do it for me.
I made it with boiling water, tried in hot – wasn’t impressed so added milk. Milk improved it somewhat. It made it drinkable but to be honest I wouldn’t be rushing to make it again.
I then tried it with honey (figs and honey go together) and it didn’t improve. That said I rarely feel sugar improves tea plus I worry about it rotting my teeth so I am disposed not to like it.
I would not buy this tea again and I’m not sure I’ll finnish the 50g bag I have of it.

Really lovely. I’m not a big fan of any hot liquid that isn’t improved by milk but this is a gorgeous bedtime tea. Raspberry overpowers the lemons. The colour is beautiful in a glass teapot.

Bio

I really love tea… and when I say tea I mean Barry’s or Lyon’s Irish Breakfast Tea. It’s what I grew up knowing as tea and for me it’ll always be the best.
I have also drunk infusions, normally berry flavoured ones. I am beginning to explore other teas.
I take black tea either infused in water with cold milk added or as a tea latte with sugar.
Mate, Green, white or infusions I take plain.

Dublin, Ireland
