Finally! Everything I’ve been looking for in a cinnamon tea! It smells spicy like a cinnamon bear candy, but it doesn’t have that burning bite. Instead it has a fantastic black tea base, with a good strong but not overwhelming cinnamon flavor. It’s sweet and as everyone else has mentioned, a bit of a bakery flavor. It takes milk and sugar well, but if want to stay away from sugar it has a natural light sweetness (not a flavored sweetness). This is one black tea that actually tastes as good or even better as it cools down! So happy to have found this tea!
12 Tasting Notes
This is a very dark china black tea and is very smooth. It’s smells of berry’s and has wonderful undertone of bergamot. The flavors are very well balanced. It handles milk well and a bit of sugar brings out the berry flavors. I thought it tasted like strawberry, but the ingredients say raspberry. Either way, a very delicious tea!
The bergamot is gentle – and the vanilla bean adds a lovely compliment and gentle sweetnets. The thing that most impressed me was that it was a wonderful high quality black tea base that stood up to the flavoring and was not overpowered.
When I opened this tea, my mouth began to water! You can smell the terrific blend of masala spices as well as large dark Ceylong tea leaves. This is a terrific tea – the best Masala Chai I have tasted!
If you would enjoy a pear flavored Jolly Rancher melted into your Sencha tea, then you would enjoy this tea. However, though I love Sencha, this was not a tea I would ever drink again.
I was entering new territory trying a roasted green tea! So I carefully studied the website before brewing my first cup. I wanted to get it right. I followed the instructions, adjusting the water temperature a bit for my own taste. I’ve never had a tea I only steeped for 45 seconds!
I took a sip, then another and another. I loved this tea!!!! It has a lovely nutty flavor – maybe a bit like chestnuts. When first brewed and still very hot, it still had a bit of the fragrance of tobacco and grass, but that quickly faded as the tea cooled. It also became sweeter and sweeter as it cooled! I have never tasted such a sweet tea that was not flavored to be sweet!
I drank this ALL summer long as an iced tea. Fantastic!!!
I love this tea! The black tea is rich and smooth – and the addition of strawberry and lemon is unique. I drink this with milk and a bit of sugar. Can’t wait to buy more!
I originally bought this tea as a nice spiced iced tea, but as the weather wasn’t quite warm enough, I started brewing it hot. I love this tea so much I may have to buy more for summer! It is is a great tea blend – reminds me a lot of “Yorkshire Red”, but it has a great spicy flavor with the whole cloves and cardamom and the black pepper. It’s great black – with a nice spicy bite to it – it takes milk well and even a bit of sweetener if you want. An amazingly versatile tea! It’s only down fall is that the leaves are very tiny – again like the “Yorkshire Red” and so you need a good strainer for this loose leaf tea.
Rather than a fake coconut flavor, this is soaked in coconut milk. It creates a lovely smooth cup of tea! I feel like I’m in the tropics when I drink this tea! And it can be brewed several times!
I have never been a huge fan of Earl Grey – but I love this one! The background tea is a wonderful black tea base that is not overwhelmed with Bergamont. And the addition of lavender is perfect! The only Earl Grey I will drink now!
This is the best Ceylon I have ever had. It’s creamy, strong, smooth and I can brew it directly in the pot and it doesn’t get bitter even over a half hour!!! Amazing! I LOVE this tea!
