I sampled this tea at the Toronto Tea Festival 2017 and brought home a 55g bag for $10.
I really like the flavour, which is definitely cinnamon-forward but not overpowering. It doesn’t taste like a spicy cinnamon heart, it just tastes like a nice herbal tea with some cinnamon and clove flavours coming to the front. I can sense that there is a bit of green tea in there as the base. Kind of like a green or white tea with chai flavours.

This tea would probably mix great with some (non-dairy) milk or made into a tea latte, if that’s your taste. I’ve been drinking it black. Works great for a second steeping as well, so 2tsp has gotten me an entire day of tea drinking at work which I like. (I haven’t tried more than 2 steeps yet so far)

I’ve been sipping this for the entire day at work and haven’t got sick of the taste at all like can happen with some teas. It’s very nice, there’s no bitterness or astringency or tannin taste. The cinnamon makes it taste almost kind of sweet on its own. I love the smell which reminds me of ginger snaps or cookies or holiday baking.

I would definitely recommend this tea. I do actually feel relaxed yet energized at the same time which surprised me a little. Usually I am VERY sensitive to caffeine so I look for teas that won’t make me jittery or give me a headache. I like that this has a little caffeine so it has been helping me stay awake and alert while I’m at my (sometimes boring) desk job without any negative effects from caffeine. After finishing my first cup I felt somewhat uplifted and slightly happier and peppier than normal. I was able to concentrate more and accomplish tasks faster. No crash or headache in the afternoon. I’ll definitely be finishing this bag of loose leaf and will likely repurchase since they are local to Toronto where I live.

Thanks for this one, JakeB! I really wanted to try it. An interesting mix of ingredients here. I can’t say that I was boosted with energy and had the same amount of ridiculous anxiety. I was mostly hoping I’d feel like a Viking. The flavor is interesting and unique – some vegetal flavor, hints of cinnamon and clove. I’m not sure what the Icelandic moss was supposed to taste like. I don’t think there was too much black tea in the blend, as the brew was very light like a white tea might look like. The second steep tasted the same as the first. Using 212 degree water doesn’t make it taste overbrewed at all, no matter what this lovely mix of ingredients is composed of… I’ll be investigating this one more!

Did you feel any hint of Vikingness pumping through your veins after you were done with your cup?

This tea is fantastic! I’ve been having a few cups every day. There’s a beautiful taste and aroma of Cinnamon, Clove, and Rose but the other herbs are nicely balanced so each sip goes down smooth. After a week of drinking I can definitely say that I feel an energy boost and, after a cup, my mood immediately improves and I have less stress. When I first read the ingredients I was intrigued because I’ve never had a tea with Rhodiola or Icelandic Moss. I researched a bit more beyond the MoxTea website and discovered lots of scientific studies showing the benefits of the ingredients found in this tea. I felt greater clarity and concentration to the point where I noticed I was reading faster and absorbing the content better. I also don’t have as many “senior moments”. My sister and brother also tried some and really enjoyed it. They’ll be placing orders and so will I when I run out! :)

I’ve been drinking this tea for the past several days in an attempt to decide if it gives me extra energy like it claims. On several of those days I plain did not get enough sleep as I had to be up at 6 am. On those days I ended up having coffee later in the morning to wake me up. On the days where I could sleep until 9 am it seemed to give me extra energy. Today is another 9 am day so we will see.

As far as the taste this tea tastes heavily of cinnamon and cloves, I really don’t think I taste the other herbal ingredients and it is a little hard to taste the tea base. I do like this tea. I am just still on the fence about its added energy claims.

I brewed this one time with 4 tsp leaf and 190 degree water in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper for 5 min.

This is an interesting tea. Not sure I’m tasting all the ingredients like the Viking Moss etc. I am certainly getting the cinnamon and the cloves from this. I added sugar to this so it’s hard to say just how sweet it is. It does have a nice taste. The main question will it give me energy throughout the day as it claims? I won’t have an answer to that until later on at the earliest. I think I will refrain from giving this a number until I see if it gives me energy throughout my day as it claims. It is tasty.

haha. How goes it – is it still working?

There does seem to be something to the claim of sustained energy. I had a lot of energy today. Going to drink this again tomorrow morning and see what I think during my day at work. Today I was off so it was not as good a test.

Really enjoying this one again. It was a long time since I last had it and I frankly forgot about it, but it matches the beautiful fall weather. Love the aroma in the air too.

I was really impressed with this tea. I was not sure how it would taste, having Icelandic moss, Gingko, and Rhodiola. I figured cinnamon and cloves would be at the forefront of flavors, and they were but definitely not overwhelmingly so. I used boiling water and get about 3-4 cups per 2 tsps of tea. The earlier steeps have a nice taste. I can’t pick out the flavors because I’ve never had some of the ingredients before, but the cinnamon, cloves, and rose petals are the strongest. The later steeps, I’d say the cinnamon, cloves, and rose petals are really the only flavors present. The first time that I had this, I had one of my best meditation sessions ever! I wouldn’t say the energy boost is like coffee. It’s like how tea is— a focused energy. And it is very relaxing at the same time. Also, the flavor stays in your mouth for a long time afterwords. It’s like a delicious candle is in your mouth. The aroma fills the room, and I like drinking water in the same cup afterwords because of the lovely smell. I will buy this again when I run out.
