I don’t know why I bought this, to be honest. I like cinnamon, cloves and cardamom — but it’s not like there’s a shortage of these flavors in my cupboard right now. And I usually loathe vanilla. But I bought it anyway in some payday-fueled grocery haze and gave it a shot. And you know what? It’s actually pretty good.
My favorite part was opening the box and getting a whiff of the scent. It smells delicious, and not a bit like vanilla, thank goodness. The spices are strong without being overwhelming, which is always nice. You can really taste the cloves, in a good way. And, while you taste the vanilla, too, it’s not strong enough to drown out the other flavors, just enough to give this a smoother, sweeter taste.
All in all, this is really good for a bagged tea. I will definitely buy it again.
