I was desperate for some tea that gave me a “feel good” familiarity, so I popped over to Montana Tea & Spice Trading company to check out their teas. They have a large selection of teas and tisanes, not to mention that decaf stuff I won’t touch, rooibos and yerba mate. I picked up Cinnamon Spice, falling into the desperate hope it would remind me of a much better Bigelow’s Cinnamon Stick. One whiff and thought, “oh no — not hot cinnamon.” But I forged ahead and after a flash rinse (when in doubt, flash rinse) and brewed up a pot.

The first pot had a bit of red-hot cinnamon flavor to it, but it wasn’t obnoxious. The second steep proved to be the gem — a smooth flavor of cinnamon shines through. I’d give it a much higher rating if the first pot had done that. Overall, it performed pretty well and I’m brewing a fresh pot tonight.
