I. LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. Cinnamon. When cinnamon hearts come out around valentines day, I stock up for the year – even though they never last that long. I love the taste of the cinnamon but also how it burns your tongue. Red hots are my all time favorite candy- like the real red hots that you really can’t find anywhere anymore.

This tea smells so delicious. It is exactly like cinnamon hearts. Mmmmm. High hopes!

The tea is very disappointing when compared to the smell. It tastes like very blunted cinnamon. There is no spice or burn to it. There is a bit of spice in the aftertaste, but it is more generic and not necessarily cinnamon. There is a very, very faint sweetness, more prominent in the aftertaste. Also in the aftertaste, I am getting a very fake, or artificial taste. Kind of like some kind of artificial candy coating that has no flavour.

I do not feel like the cinnamon is mixing well with the pu-erh.

So far my experience with these David Tea’s flavoured pu-erh’s is that the flavour seems to be in the aftertaste or when cool, but no so much when its hot.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
