Oh cinnamon tea, why did I buy you? I think I found steepster too close to BF. I was so excited to TRY ALL THE TEAS that I decided to really take advantage of the many different sales to buy them all. Unfortunately, after some time realizing what my likes/dislikes are, I was left wondering why I bought half the teas I did when the orders finally came in. This is one of those teas. I find cinnamon to be rather finicky in teas and I really hate when cinnamon gets overly sweet.

This is just on the border of cinnamon sweetness. It is spicy enough that I can manage to drink the cup but I think this will be added to my teas to swap because I don’t particularly want to drink it again.

Flavors: Cinnamon

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Aw I liked this one. :) But I suppose we can’t love all the teas haha.

VariaTEA

Do you want it? I will pass it along. I think I am just super picky about cinnamon.

Stephanie

I hate when that happens!

VariaTEA

Its okay. I have learned. Now when I go on sites, I am incredibly picky about what goes into my cart.

Courtney

I’ve also gotten much pickier, and I’m all about sample sizes. I wouldn’t mind a wee bit, just the next time you’re sending something. :)

VariaTEA

It’s all yours :)

Fjellrev

It’s kind of nice to read about the more recent Della Terra offerings since I haven’t ordered since last spring. Seems like I’m not missing out on much. But glad Courtney likes it! It all works out in the end.

Courtney

I don’t really order either Fjellrev haha. Just Lemon Chiffon for J. Cinnamon Crackle is a holiday one I believe, because I had it the Christmas before the one just passed. Were you interested in some? I can certainly share. :)

Fjellrev

Oh no, it’s ok! It’s just funny how from time to time, I check their site and nothing seems to really interest me. Then, I come here and read the reviews and it just sort of validates my judgements. Almond Biscotti seems like their only decent-sounding recent offering.

Ah, I totally get this. I’m just in the midst of putting together a swap list as we speak…I have way too much of the teas I don’t like, it would seem.

This one wasn’t exactly what I was expecting either, but good enough to finish the sample pack off.

After being overweight all my life I finally decided to commit to the long journey of weight loss. When life got too monotonous with all the diet food I decided to try teas in hopes of finding new flavors. I never realized the addiction I would face and now I am in love with all things tea!

However, I am still new to the tea scene and although I have bought many David’s Teas and Teavana Teas I know there is just so much out there to try and I am excited for each and every new experience. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

Well after over a month on steepster, I have learned many new things about tea and my own personal tastes. For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well. Oh and I LOVE Red Leaf Tea’s flavored matcha.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.

Tea Ratings (a loose guide):
1-15 – This cup is going down the drain
16-30 – I will finish the cup but I am not making another
31-50 – I don’t think I like this but I will try another cup just to be sure
51-60 – I am really on the fence about this tea
61-70 – I like this enough to finish what I have but I won’t be buying it again
71-80 – I like this and will buy it every now and then
81-90 – I really like this and will replace it as soon as I can
91-100 – I LOVE this and will buy more before I run out of what I have so that this is never missing from my cupboard
