One of the mystery teas in my mix box! This is another one of the teas blended to one of Arthur’s songs. I’m finding the crossing of interests with music and tea fascinating!
This tea has a slight tartness to it at the start of the sip. I had to look at the ingredients because cinnamon was a prominent flavor I was picking up, but I didn’t see it on the packaging! I might have to double check. It’s more of a mellow baked cinnamon as opposed to the spicy bright cinnamon. This has pea flowers in it which colors the tea a deep purple/magenta and lends a little bit of earthiness to the flavor. A lot of pea flower teas I’ve had didn’t do much to mask or build on the pea flavor and I’m glad to see that isn’t the case here. There is a fruitiness I’m getting, but I can’t say what fruit. Like Sobre, this tea has a lot of flavors coming in and out of focus while managing to merge slightly as opposed to stepping on each other’s toes. There is a lightly tart cinnamon apple in the finish. Reminds me of apple cinnamon oatmeal! I’m looking forward to see how this tea grows on me over time!
