drank Marketspice by Winston's Tea Company
373 tasting notes

Had this a few times but kept forgetting to log it.

It was a present from my friend. There’s… not much information on the Winston’s Tea Company website. It smells of cinnamon and orange. Well, mostly cinnamon; the website only confirms that it contains cinnamon.

So much cinnamon.

It’s quite spicy. I’d try it with milk, but that seems kind of weird with orange. At least I’m assuming orange is the fruit I’m smelling—could actually be apple. It’s really hard to tell, I can’t pick it up much mixed with the cinnamon.

It’s certainly not an everyday tea for me. Makes me think of Christmas, though. Spice and fruit.

Definitely orange. Here’s more info from the original seller. http://marketspice.com/store/products/marketspice-tea-16oz-package

I agree w/ the milk. This is one spiced tea I’d never add milk too… although would be better as an iced latte. Make ice cream out of it? Darn you though, in looking for this link I found they have a lemon berry sage black tea that I now think I need. Oh well, I’ll wait for summer… would be a good lemonade substitute I think.:)

I found that site too, in my search for information. I figured it might be the source.

Latte sounds like a good idea, actually; iced would help with the overpowering cinnamon, I think.

I was inadvertently a bad influence. Wahahahah.

Cofftea

It would have happened eventually, I love that place!

I thought it smelled like Christmas too!!! This is one of the constant sellers at “Winston’s” in Naniamo, and she has bags upon bags of it, and dear lord the next time I have an empty tin it is going with me to Naniamo!

Bio

I change icons often, apologies. On that note, they are usually Doctor Who related (so no, that is not me pictured in the icon, it is most likely one of the Doctors).

A tea-drinking transgendered Canadian, currently in the third year of university, majoring in geology (yes, “rocks and things”). I take most of my tea made straight into a mug, although occasionally if I’m not in a hurry (this isn’t often), I’ll have time to sit down with a pot. It’s the highlight of a good day if I have time for a pot.

My notes and reviews will often sound dis-jointed, repetitive and confused, as usually I don’t work on them as a whole, but rather add notes as I sip without rereading what I’ve already typed.

On most occasions I won’t take my tea with anything (I reserve milk for chai). Occasionally agave nectar if I want to test to see if it’ll smooth it out. Chais I will make with either the nectar or honey. Although on occasion I will sweeten unflavoured blacks the Russian way—with jam or jelly. Occasionally I will take it instead with a slice of a citrus fruit. Normally orange, occasionally lemon if I have any on hand.

I prefer Earl Greys.

Lastly, I keep a teatra.de blog for reviewing and rambling about tea books/publications.

Also, I am a Doctor Who fanatic. As one may have noticed by my icons. For the record, my favourite Doctor is number three, Jon Pertwee.
