Another tea from the box that my grandmother sent me.
This one is immensely better than the raspberry, but still not something I’d buy on my own. I don’t really do teabags in the first place, but that’s not really the point.
When I opened the box the smell of spice is the primary aroma- not specifically cinnamon, but spice. The same is true once the tea is brewed, although you can smell a hint of citrus as well.
Unlike the blackberry spice variety from Gevalia that I tried before, this one is less artificial in taste. The flavoring is actually quite subtle- a hint of orange with the cinnamon coming through ever so lightly. Not bad.
Like I said, I don’t ever buy bagged teas like this unless I’m completely out of anything else (god forbid, but the postal service does have a tendency to be slow about things!) but this wasn’t all that horrible. It had quite a warming effect and I actually finished the cup which was a surprise in itself!
All in all it was okay I suppose.
