I used to really like this one in its 52Teas days, so it’s making me feel all nostalgic to be drinking it again today. It’s pretty much as I remember it – cinnamon being the main flavour, with an added touch of honey-like sweetness from the base, and just the slightest hint of glace icing to round out the sip. It never really captured the “bread” aspect all that well, and it doesn’t in SBT form, but it’s still pretty delicious.
I sometimes wonder how this one would have been on a Chinese black base, with some delicious bready notes, lots of cinnamon, and a bit more icing. Perfection in a cup? I feel like that’s not true to the spirit of this one, though, so I’m going to enjoy it for what it is. It’s a sad farewell.
