drank Cinnamon by Kusmi Tea
22 tasting notes

On my first visit to the discussion site of Steepster I found that there was a RueLaLa promotion for 50% off Kusmi Teas. (I´ve searched for the thread to thank the friend that posted it but could not find it. To make the long story short, I brought the deal, placed the order, me teas arrived perfectly and I am tasting the first one.

To give just a little background, I LOVE chais and strong flavors, so the Cinammon Kasmi sounded like a very good choice to start my day and Kasmi adventure. The result was very different, not in a bad way, just very different to what I expected.

There is no strong cinnamon flavor (Teavanish cinnamon) in the tea. This is black tea, and tastes like black tea however there is a hint of cinnamon lingering somewhere between the smell and the taste. If I try to concentrate on the smell, it goes away and the same happens to the taste, yet, it is there all the time.

I dont know how they do it, and if this will be a constant on my other Kusmi teas, but I do like it! If I worked on the “Honesty on Advertising” department I would say: This is a black tea, this tastes like a great black tea with a bonus: A layer of cinnamon that is not competing with the black tea flavor but instead complimenting it softly.
