I had a cup of this when I got home from work yesterday. TGIF!! I accidentally steeped this at 175 instead of 195, and it really changed the flavors a lot.

This time around the cinnamon smell wasn’t as strong and it had an almost tartness about it. I made a second cup afterwards with the 195 temp and I got that great creamy taste I’m used to. This is turning into a real hit or miss tea for me. Definitely not the most forgiving, as far as my experiences thus far have gone, especially if you’re aiming for that cinnamon roll taste.

Preparation

Not much too say. I love tea! Especially greens and oolong. I also really enjoy the occasional fruity tea, but really I’m up to try anything.! …Well except earl grey, I really don’t like bergamot.

When I first joined I usually always forgot to finish my last sip of tea leaving it cold and alone, destined for the drain. Nowadays I still leave the last couple sips of tea. I really drink my cups slowly, HOWEVER, I almost always finish my cups now, even if they are room temperature.
