I opened this tea for the first time and instantly smelled cinnamon then coughed from the pepper. There is a lot of pepper in this bag of tea.
I steeped 1 1/2 teaspoons according to the package for the recommended 2 minutes. Next time I will use more. This tea is very light and quite bland for me. And still the only thing I can smell with my nose in the mug is cinnamon and pepper. And the aftertaste it leaves – I guess I agree with others – it tastes like redhots. I was never really a fan of redhots.
