This blend was super simple but for a cinnamon junkie like me, it was heaven in a teacup. It wasn’t overdone but still had tons of spicy flavor. There was a really nice “baked” quality that definitely brought cinnamon rolls to mind.
Was a bit worried this would go the way of the dessert-flavored stuff I tried from Culinary Teas (not bad, just disappointing, with an unsatisfying tea base and more aroma than flavor) because they both have ceylon as their foundation, but no! This was surprisingly yummy, and a lot smoother and silkier than the CT stuff. The cinnamon smells and tastes like true cinnamon, strong and not sweet, and the tea base is actually quite decent, round and satisfying, and seems to go well with the cinnamon flavor. I would definitely drink this again! Takes well to some milk and raw sugar.
I generally dislike flavored teas. However, this is one of the few exceptions—-I like this tea quite a bit.
The cinnamon flavor, while being very flavorful, is still subtle enough not to be cloying or overwhelming.
I would describe this as a very pleasant & soothing tea.
