First of all, this tea smells amazing! It’s a nice fall tea, but if it’s steeped just a little too long the taste can get really intense and way too spicy. I’m looking forward to mixing it with some other teas to get some new flavors.

This is one of my favorite teas. I mix it with White Ayurvedic Chai which also comes from Teavana. I always make my teas to taste so I use 3 tsp per 8-10oz glass (1.5 tsp is recommended) and steep for 3 minutes. Water temp is recommended at 175F but I again i make my teas to taste so I just use hot water from my Keurig. I was using the sugar from teavana which is absolutely wonderful but regular sugar tastes fine too. I just switched to Splenda in an attempt to cut sugar from my diet.
This was the first tea I purchased and tried from Teavana, and the first real (non teabag) tea that I ever had. It is amazing, I love it so much. The fact that it not only tastes amazing but also has the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee is perfect. My boyfriend and I picked this tea out and we were very pleased with it. I’ve had it both hot and cold, and while I prefer it hot, its great both ways!
I tried this at a Teavana store and thought it tasted fantastic, so I bought two ounces. At home, it tastes a bit too much like Big Red gum. I’m assuming that the sample I had at the store was blended with something else. It’s growing on me. I usually hate anything cinnamon (with the exception if cinnamon rolls. nom nom nom), but this isn’t too awful. I just wish it tasted more like what I had in the store.
