Delicious. This was a change from my usual T2 Melbourne Breakfast, but the concept of vanilla & cinnamon intrigued me. And it was a good choice! The pancakes impression is seriously strong. If I didn’t know that I was supposed to be tasting cinnamon, I’m not sure I’d identify it as such, so if you’re not a fan of that flavour in your tea, I wouldn’t worry. I’m not sure this will make it onto my “must always have available” shortlist, but I’m definitely going to enjoy it while I have it. Buttery, maple, and cosy.
Flavors: Brown Toast, Butter, Cinnamon, Maple Syrup, Vanilla
Love this tea. Not just for winter, this tea is good all year around. It’s like all the bite-y flavours from chai without the aromatics, and for me, without feeling the need to add honey. Pepper and cinnamon, with just the right ginger kick kick.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Ginger, Pepper
One of my favourite tea bag teas. This tea needs (and stands up to) a fairly long brewing time to get the full depth of flavour – I usually steep for a good 5 minutes. This brings out a well balanced spice to tea ratio, which when coupled with a teaspoon of honey and a goodly splash of milk, is enough to save even the most stressful of afternoons.
Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Cloves, Fennel, Nutmeg, Pepper
