Many, many thanks to Kashyap for this tea!!!

As a Hot Cinnamon Spice fanatic, I was really looking forward to trying this tea. I am finding that the main difference is that it has an utterly delicious candied orange peel flavor! It has the cinnamon verging on red hots, enjoyable tea base, but that candied orange peel (vs not all that pronounced plainish orange peel in HCS) is the distinctive factor for me. I love it! I am having that Empty Cup Syndrome where I keep picking up my empty cup to see if maybe there is a little more tea in there even though I know there is not (this after having two cups already!). I think I shall have another cup this afternoon!

What a treat! Thanks once again Kashyap! D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!!!!!!

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
