Better than candy

OK, so this tea doesn’t really have cinnamon hearts in it, but you’ll be forgiven for thinking it does. It’s a sweet blend of Sri Lankan cinnamon, spices, lemon, pu’erh and Chinese black tea. Unlike candy, however, this tea has no calories and no sugar rush. Just a nice jolt of caffeine from the pu’erh. So indulge away.

Ingredients: Chinese cooked pu’erh tea, Chinese black tea, lemon, cloves, cinnamon. With artificial and natural flavouring*.

Well, I don’t hate this tea – I just don’t like the dry smell of it… The cinnamon smells good, but there’s this weird, off putting smell to it I can’t really place. I want to say it’s like a stinky smell, but not actually. I don’t know… I think it must be the cooked pu-erh… The brewed tea itself tastes pretty good, though. I usually have this as a latte, but tonight I’m having just a hot cup with a little sugar. I like cinnamon as long as it’s not too overpowering, like this tea, the cinnamon blends well with the orange peel and it’s not too strong for my liking.

This tea made me realize I’m not a fan of cinnamon. I like chai but the cinnamon needs to be more subtle than this.

Finally a Puerh that I don’t dislike! It smells just like cinnamon heart candies and it tastes like very strong cinnamon, with a hint of puerh. I think I would like it as a latté.

I’ve been dreading trying this one for a while now as cinnamon hearts have never been a favourite of mine, but I vowed to finish the sweetheart collection before breaking into my new teas (only one more to go). Tried it as a latte in the hopes that it would make it more tolerable. Overall, it was actually pretty good. Not as intensely cinnamon-y as I had feared. The tea base is present too, but not overly earthy as some pu-erhs can be. Wouldn’t buy it again, but was pleasantly surprised.

I know the other day I was bitching about David’s Tea but I did go in there today to buy a couple of blends I actually like from them (Coco Chai Rooibos and Chocolate Rocket).

This seems to be one of those teas that people either love or hate. I thought I was going to be in the “love” category myself because when I first tasted it I thought it was pretty good. I like cinnamon and clove, and they seemed to be nicely done in this tea. But as this is cooling off I am getting the fishy smell that other people noticed. I drink a lot of puer and I can tell you that this is not really normal for me to have this reaction to puer. I think maybe the puer they used just isn’t such a great quality. It’s a shame since this could have been such a great tea, but cinnamon and fish don’t go together at all.

Meanwhile I am kicking myself for succumbing to this…. F*uck I’m not sure I can finish my cup! Why did I do it???? It smells “rotten”

I had the same reaction. Boo


I am hoping I can take it back!

Some one suggested to me that I steep it for 5 or 10 seconds, then dump it out, rinse the cup and steep again properly. I’m going to try it, but … I dunno, it tasted bad to me.


I will try it too. I’ve “rinsed” puerhs in the past but don’t normally do that with flavored puerhs since it rinses off some of the flavoring.

I tried this a third time. Actually brewed a whole cup for 4 minutes, then dumped the tea and rinsed the leaves before brewing the cup I drank. Nope. Still not doing it for me. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. I have an unopened 50 gram packet of chocolate orange pu’erh. I hesitate to open it. Maybe my friend Athena would enjoy it.


I actually tried that a couple of weeks ago and surprised myself by liking it!

Maddy Barone

I had it a year ago or so when I was in the store in Winnipeg, and I remember enjoying it. That’s why I ordered it. Oh, well.


Can’t win ’em all. :)

Sad to say, this tea was the loser in my DAVIDsTEA chai/spice taste-off… But that might be because it was competing with two more complex blends.The cinnamon here just tasted so flat and one-note, compared to the teas with more spices. And while I don’t hate pu-erh, this particular blend does have a slight fishy smell to it once it’s steeped, which was more noticeable alongside the other teas.

Still, the cinnamon flavor does resemble those candy cinnamon hearts, which is cool. Maybe I’ll try it again in a month or two, to see if I’ve changed my mind, then decide what to do with the rest. It’s getting pretty old, so I don’t want to keep it much longer if it’s just going to take up space in my cupboard.

I’ve had a sample of this for a while and put off trying it after striking out with the previously-adored Coffee Pu’erh.. I probably haven’t stored this all that well (zip lock baggie), but it still smells strongly of cinnamon. Taste wise it’s a lot of hay with the cinnamon adding a faint heat. Not bad, but I like Hot Cinnamon Spice so much better.

Still, I’m glad I got to try this one!

Another tea from my sample pack. I figured that the evening after a big meal was the perfect time to try out a pu’erh like this. Its smell definitely lives up to its name – it’s almost identical to those spicy cinnamon heart candies the stores sell for Valentine’s Day. The flavour starts of well – sweet, cinammon-y and rather candy-like. But then it just fades off into nothing leaving a sort of weak, dirt-like aftertaste. I’m not really getting any of the earthy richness that generally characterizes a good pu-erh. It’s rather disappointing.

Too bad: I would think the cinnamon/pu combination would fit nicely.


Yeah, I was really keen on trying this one. I think the problem is with the pu-erh base that Davids Tea uses as I’ve been less than thrilled with some of their other flavoured pu-erhs as well.
