From American Tea Room

Our Red Hot black tea is a spicy and warming organic blend of Chinese black teas, cinnamon bits and Chinese long pepper. Dry, its aroma is deep, complex, spicy and sweet. Brewed, it becomes even more warming and wintery as a cinnamon note dominates the bouquet. The burgundy brew offers notes of cinnamon, earth, chocolate, spice and (thanks to the Chinese long pepper) a slightly earthy note that deepens the cinnamon flavor. Lingering cinnamon sweetness in the aftertaste makes Red Hot perfect for pairing with pumpkin bread, cinnamon scones or cinnamon buns. This is a must-try tea for cinnamon lovers!

okay, so for some unknown reason i was prompted to try this tea. i tend to have an aversion to cinnamon, similar to my banana bias…. call me a masochist, but i wanted to know how the chilli pepper went with the cinnamon.

i don’t usually do spice, so erring on the side of caution i leafed following the instructions (so unlike me). it’s a good thing i did! this tea has got game! i got heat in a ring around my tonsils… which is weird seeing as i was born without any!

whew! predictably, i’m in a great mood now, lol. (spice causes endorphins to be released)… wonder what will happen if i do my usual leafing? heh heh.

i like this one. american tea company is an interesting vendor… creative combinations.

OKAY: there are actual chilli centers in this blend…. i doubled my leaf and my steeping time. HOLY HANNAH!!! (can’t imagine what it would be like if i weren’t complete chicken that put cream in it, lol!

NEVERMIND! as it cools it gains more teeth!!! even WITH cream. i don’t even taste cinnamon at this point and it’s a creative thing if i hiccup. i will be ordering this again…. it’ll reduce my hydro bills in the winter!!!!

Wow, I’m yet to find a fiery hot tea! This sounds like the real deal.

Oh boo. I think the feed is broken, again

Hmm, I think I was expecting more spice. I mean, come on. It’s called Red Hot.

There’s definitely a spicy, nipping element, and that does increase as the cup cools, but the sweet cinnamonyness of the cup wins out. In that way, it actually really does remind of the Red Hot candies, just once the biting spicy outside coating is all gone and leaves only the cinnamon candy.

Thanks TastyBrew!

Random sample I pulled out. Thanks TastyBrew! I was expecting more of a spicy flavor with this tea but it’s pretty sweet. It reminds me of a chai with some sugar (note that I didn’t add any to this cup). It does have a fair amount of spice but the sweeter note is stronger. I like it but I don’t think I would buy it.
