HOT: This tea is very light and mild. It is soothing and has warm cinnamon notes pairing pleasantly with cool crisp pear/apple. The ginger is more of an aftertaste at the end, on the back of the tongue as you swallow. it is a lovely tea for the stressful holiday season.
I mildly enjoyed it hot, but it really tastes best made as a cold brew!
COLD: both the smell and the taste is reminiscent of a mild ginger beer, like when you mix lemon-lime soda with it. There is a much stronger spicy tone when it is cold, and the taste is somewhat stronger. It is also a little more bitter in taste when iced, but not unpleasantly so.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Earth, Ginger, Green Apple, Pear
