I emailed Rhonda at H&S about this just last Friday, and she offered to send me a sample which my postie delivered first thing this (Mon) morning – how’s that for excellent customer service ?! Unfortunately I was running out the door when it arrived so all I could manage was a quick sniff, and that was enough to see me rushing thorough my errands and racing back home to try it asap .. And let me say it did not disappoint!

From the dry leaf to the brewed cup it smells of strong sweet cinnamon (YUM!), and even without sugar it’s a treat .. But (imho) it tastes even better with 1teaspoon of raw; no milk though, it would be wrong to adulterate it further!

Sweet Strong Cinnamony Goodness, and the second steep was just as good as the first .. Even as it started to cool off in my cup it was delicious, and this will absolutely definitely find a permanent home in my cupboard and cup :P

For many years I only drank coffee, and the occasional herbal tisane .. But eventually I got sick of people complaining that I had no ‘real tea’ in the house so I bought a box of cheap tea bags and remembered WHY I didn’t drink the stuff!

And so life went on until the day an English friend invited me to visit her home .. She made us a pot of (loose leaf) Earl Grey to enjoy in the garden – and finally I’d found a Tea that I truly wanted to drink!

Now-a-days my favourite alternates between home-made Masala Chai, Lady Grey with a few extra drops of Sweet Orange Essential Oil, Dessert Flavoured Blacks, and my latest interest is Dragon Peal Jasmine ..

any less = I wouldn’t drink it again
70 – 80 = Nice, but there’s better
80 – 90 = Mmm, Yummy Stuff ..
90 – 100 = Unique, Stand-Outs, & Can Not Be Withouts!
