As far as teas that taste exactly like what they are intended to mimic, this one totally hits its mark. The package says no additional sweeteners are necessary, but I’m the habit of adding milk/cream and sugar in everything. I did sip it first, and was mostly overpowered by cinnamon but not a lot of sweetness. I think it would actually be better without the milk, but my picky tastebuds love some extra sugar.

I can taste hints of clove that remind me of a strong chai, but overall I think this reminds me most of Celestial Seasonings “Tiger Spice” (which I’ve taken to calling tiger blood, lol) only taken down a few notches on the strongness front. Tiger spice is way more overpowering and so strong it makes me feel the need to sneeze. Cinnamon bear gives me a nice mix of that cinnamon flavor without being too overwhelming. It’s definitely not subtle by any means, but with a couple spoons of sugar it’s pretty awesome. next time I’ll do without the milk, because I think it adds a weird flavor note that doesn’t go well with the cinnamon, but for those who may find this too strong, a bit of cream or milk might help. I’m not sure if a different kind of milk might work better with this tea (almond? coconut?) but I will experiment a bit.

Overall, I like it and if you’re a fan of tiger spice but think it may be too strong, try this one. Its totally like biting into a cinnamon bear gummy.

Bio

I’m creative, introverted, sometimes boring, a little bit crazy (aren’t we all?), I like my sense of humor, though you may have to get me drunk to really notice its existence, I’m shy and quiet most of the time, I love my friends and family but hate People in general (society makes me sick most of the time), I like the smell of nailpolish and gasoline, I like broccoli and hate lima beans. I like music. I like being surprised. I like waking up on Saturday morning and going back to sleep. I talk to my animals. I meow at my animals. I enjoy puzzles, word games, sudoku. I love the sound of rain when all else is quiet. I love thunderstorms and will chase down lightning when it’s close by. I love reading and writing. I love photography. I love people who are passionate about things. I hate when people tell me I have a pretty smile, because they can’t think of anything else nice to say about me. I like when people get me, or at least tolerate my oddities. I enjoy praise, but only when it is truly deserved and not just trying to blow smoke up my ass. I have a hard time saying no. I have an equally hard time saying yes. I’m a lover AND a fighter. I miss my Dad. I miss old friends. I will not forget or dismiss my past, and look forward to my future.

If you want to know anything else, you’re always welcome to ask. I am honest. I am curious. I am just Me, and that’s the best I can be.
