When this came in the mail I was SO EXCITED. This is the first tea I got purely from all the great reviews people on steepster were giving. A cinnamon roll tea that tastes exactly like its name? TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE! After having two cups of this so far, (one with a 1/2tsp of sugar, the other with the same amount of sugar + milk) I still have to say that it is too good to be true. Maybe I had my expectations set too high?
First impression is it smells strongly of cinnamon, like others say. After brewing it, I still had the strong cinnamon smell but it wasn’t quite as prominent when taking a sip. It did not taste like cinnamon roll though. A shame, because I WANTED IT TO. I’m not giving up either, I’m convinced this must be user error if everyone else is having such success and I am not. That or everyone else is having VERY different cinnamon rolls than me.
Despite it not tasting like it’s name in my opinion, I still enjoyed this tea. It made for a very nice cup of late night tea before bed. I expect (and hope) my rating will change as I experiment more with how to brew it.
