Wow, I really missed being here. I didn’t realize how much I would. I had a cup of coffee yesterday morning instead of my usual tea and missed taking time first thing to sit and write my note. I think it really disrupted my whole day honestly. I am absolutely a creature of habit so missing that time alone with my thoughts left me feeling tired and unmotivated. I’m glad to be back into my normal routine again today.
I was surprised when my husband chose this spiced black tea over an apple cinnamon spiced herbal. He loves herbals best so I was worried he wouldn’t enjoy it. To my surprise, he tried this yesterday and loved it! He said it tasted just like apple cider and insisted that I bring some to work with me today. He normally puts a lot of honey in his teas so for him to drink this one unsweetened and still sing its praises I knew it must be a good one. I appreciate that this has very few ingredients (only black tea, apple flavor, and cinnamon) so I hope each of the flavors will really come through.
The dry tea smells of sweet cinnamon but now that it’s steeping the black tea is really coming out. I know we’re living in the summer months right now, but the smell of this tea reminds me of a cool, crisp October morning and I’m loving it. I can taste the cinnamon but it’s not overwhelmingly spicy.
I know this may not work since it’s a teabag, but I’m going to try steeping this one again since I’ve enjoyed it so much.
8 ounces water + 212 degrees + 15 minutes
I knew this probably wouldn’t go a second round, but I’m still kind of bummed that it didn’t work out. I let this one sit for a good 15 minutes and ended up with a very light colored liquid that smells and tastes like lightly spiced hot water. Oh well, no second steep for this one.
