I wonder if maybe I got an old tin. It is almost too fake a red hot kind of cinnamon to me, but just barely misses that. It’s definitely very sweet and spicy hot. There is so much of the spice that I honestly can’t get any other flavors from it – I barely taste the tea even when I’m really trying, and there’s nothing orange or citrus about mine in the slightest. I’d be willing to try a sample from Harney – this was a tin I got off Amazon after several acquaintances recommended it, so it might not be fresh. Because of that, I won’t give it a numerical rating – if I were, I would probably give it a 65. My kids like it, they call it red hot tea.

Flavors: Candy, Cinnamon

Wife, mom of 2 crazy young kids (and 3 cats, if they count). Used to be a professional tree hugger, now I stay at home hobbit-like and teach the kids to love the trees. Also hobbit-like, I love reading, tea, second breakfasts, cooking and food in general, and gardens. (I can’t really say I love gardening since where I live, it’s too dratted hot for too much of the year to actually do it.) I am always on the search for a good flavored decaf black tea. Suggestions are more than welcome!

I tend to like my teas strong, so I use more than most people when I brew. Don’t be put off a tea because I say I used 4 tsp to brew 12 oz or something – that’s just me.

PS – Unlike a hobbit, my toes are not furry. I just feel the need to clarify.
