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*.

I have to be honest, I’m not a fan of this tea on its own (I often mix it with Hot Lips for a powerful punch). I do appreciate that it is true to its smell and what you expect. It is a cinnamon pu’reh with a touch of orange. I think it’s because I’m not a fan of pu’reh teas. I often find they taste like 4 month old aquarium water, and who wants to drink cinnamon flavoured aquarium water? There is clove in this tea, however I smell it more than I am able to taste it. Again, I could not imagine this tea cold…. Blah!
Flavors: Cinnamon, Orange Zest
This tea isn’t bad if you’re looking for something spicy, although if you’re really in persuit of spice you should check out Hot Lips which combines both cinnamon and chili peppers. Overall, a noticable enough cinnamon taste but probably not as strong as I would have liked.
Not in the best mood this morning but oh well. Anyway, I go to my kit and take out Cinnamon Heart. I smell it and cinnamon hits me in the face. Most people don’t like the strong smell of cinnamon but I actually love it! Cinnamon Heart smells DELICIOUS! So I steep it for 5 minutes and then go for 8. I take a sip… Bland. I take another sip… Still bland… So I add some sugar cane sugar… Not as bland but still bland. I am super disappointed in this tea. It’s not like the flavors bad it’s just that there isn’t enough flavor! I still like Cinnamon Heart though better than Mango Madness so I ill rate it a bit higher.
Ah! My first ever Pu’Erh tea, and I couldn’t be more pleased. I do find the earthy flavour to it very mild, but for someone who has never tasted an earthy tea it seemed a bit… Odd, to say the least.
However, the tea was very, very nice. It was on the more mild end of the scale for the cinammon flavour, and I quite enjoyed this. I will definitely be making this again, and trying out new Pu’Erh teas when I get the chance.
I recommend this to anyone wanting to try Pu’Erh (I can’t recommend to other Pu’Erh fans, since I don’t know and can’t rate how this ranks up with other Pu’Erh teas, but I certainly love it!)
Enjoying this as an Almond Milk Latte right now. Pretty darn tasty. I love the smell of it-it reminds me of Market Spice, which I also love. As a latte the cinnamon is a little bit harder to taste. I added sweetener while I steeped the tea, and as a result the latte tastes like warm, muted sweetness. It’s pretty tasty although, like I said, the cinnamon is lost. That could be because of the milk though. I will post again next time I drink this straight! None the less, very tasty.
