I receieved a sample of this from Suziqzer. Thank you!
This was pretty similar to H&S Hot Cinnamon Spice. It was a nice afternoon treat.

[Backlog] – I picked up a box of this tea because I had heard good things. It smells like Christmas right out of the box and seemed so promising! I noticed that it gave up its flavor and color quite fast. The cup was incredibly overwhelming with spice and sweetness. It’s the kind of syrupy sweetness that coats the tongue. I simply couldn’t get past a few sips. My brothers really enjoy this tea, though, so I happily gave them the rest of the box. I can see why this tea is a hit with some, but it’s just too strong for me!
Wow! This has quite the punch to it. Peppermint. Cinnamon. Licorice and there’s a sweetness that I’m not sure where it’s coming from….but I like it. This reminds me of a decaf version of Teavana’s French Quarter Spice Quartet. However the bottom the cup is tongue numbing cinnamon. It’s decent and I would probably pick it up in the store.
I don’t know from tea, but this is all right. It’s sweet…real sweet. I admit, I love sweet drinks but hate the lingering sour taste of sugar. This tea neatly sidesteps that by being perfectly sweet with no harshness afterward. The spice feels like one apple-juice-steeping away from Christmastime.
Don’t drink the stuff in the bottom. Yow!
Had this in the afternoon today & I didn’t want any caffeine. This definitely isn’t a favourite of mine, but honestly for an herbal blend, it’s one of the better ones in my opinion. That’s probably because the spices/flavours are so strong that they overwhelm any grassy/herbal notes (which are usually what kill any chance of me liking an herbal blend). I wouldn’t choose to drink this out of all the teas in my cupboard, but out of the non-caffeinated ones, it’s a decent choice.
This tea has a REALLY potent smell that’s almost all spice, and is balanced by the taste which is almost all sweet. It’s a great combo, and makes for a nice cup that can be steeped a few times if needed. That said, I think I should have steeped this for less time to smooth out the sweetness, as it was almost too sweet and makes you pucker up a bit with each sip. Definitely one that I can see myself drinking more of though, and especially on a cold and rainy day.
I don’t know what it about this one but I really didn’t like it. It was way too bland for me. I don’t know if maybe the one I had was old since all the other reviews are talking about strong flavors. Also the sweetness in it was really fake tasting to me. Also looking at the ingredients listed for this tea here on steepster is different then on the bag I had it listed artificial flavoring. I normally like honeybush blends but this one for me was just bad…
