This tea really does remind me a oatmeal raisin cookie. For me it was more the smell then the taste. It’s base is a black tea and I am only recently trying and learning to like some black tea flavors so keep that in mind. It was fairly smooth to me and I could smell the cinnamon and spices. There is cane sugar in the mix so it needed no added sugar for me. Pipping hot I didn’t enjoy it as much, but letting it cool just a bit brought out the cookie flavors.
