The cinnamon in this reminds me of how S&V accomplishes its cinnamon flavor, which I love. Unfortunately I didn’t love the apricot mixed with it. It was a bit sour and not quite right. Tweaked just a little, this could be a wonderful tea. As it was, it was decent, but a little strange.

Mmm, I’m not a flavor expert, but I’m pretty sure that “Sour” and “Spice” aren’t the best flavor profiles to mix together. Isn’t there some sort of flavor theory chart to go by on these things?

Bio

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
