This is Hot Cinnamon Spice but weaker. The cinnamon still translates, but it’s thin and watery. Not impressed.

I’m not usually a huge fan of black tea- I find the flavor a little too sharp and bitter, even when it’s been properly steeped. However, I like this one. The cinnamon takes some of the bitter edge out of the black tea and gives it a gentle kind of spice. It’s a nice option as a two o’clock pick-me-up tea. While I won’t make it part of my everyday routines and rituals, I will keep some of it around as a comfort tea on cold days.
Umm. Ick. No idea how old that teabag was, but even after almost 10 minutes of steeping, this tasted like… absolutely nothing. Hot water. The moral of this sad brew? Beware the steepings of those who keep ancient tea in their cupboard just so they can offer it at gatherings.
It is tea, and right now in my afternoon slump, that is a wonderful thing. But, I’m glad I only have a few bags left so I can replenish my work tea stash with something more exciting. The cinnamon flavor isn’t very strong or spicy – it’s just sort of..there. Maybe it’s a bit stale? It has caffeine and is not unpleasant to drink.
