This tea is a great morning tea. Sweet, spicy cinnamon, with a touch of orange. But mostly cinnamon. Seriously. It really reminds me of a Chai. I swear I’m tasting cloves in here too, since my tongue is tingling. The base doesn’t come through so much in taste, but by adding a richness to the tea as a whole, and almost a coffee-like after-taste that I really like, and it’s not even astringent! I’d like to try this base by itself someday, just to compare. This is a flavorful cup, and I could see having this instead of coffee on the rare occassion that I crave it, but this isn’t one that I would pick in hopes of fruit flavor.
