Do you like cinnamon? You will like this tea.

I almost feel like there’s one of those monster truck announcers in the back of my head screaming “ARE YOU READY FOR SOME CINN-NA-MON!!!!!!”

And the answer is, yes, yes I AM!!!

The tea is sweet (remember, I like sweetened teas, especially the blacks, and I have no urge to sweeten this at all), and very cinnamon. It smells great before and after steeping. Like cinnamon cookies or high-quality cinnamon gum.

I’ve been making my poor husband try all the teas I’ve been getting lately, and I’ve probably scarred him with some of the things we had this morning (a very vegital green steeped way too strongly, and an apple sencha that I think I messed something else up on – both of which I will rate later, because I don’t feel I’d do them justice at the moment).

But this tea I brewed up, gave him a cup and then went into another room to work on the computer. He just came in going “WOW! This one? This is a keeper!”

I wholeheartedly agree.

Second steep, much less sweet, much more orange flavor. Probably should have steeped longer. I added sweetener, but the hubby didn’t. Both still like it very much.

Bio

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
