drank Hot Cinnamon by Bigelow
1640 tasting notes

This smells like cinnamon and wet soil. Really strange. I’m tasting a lot of the licorice root, which isn’t helping the blend at all. Tastes like a red hot, but the wet soil aroma is transferring to the flavor as well. Really odd.

Wet soil haha, how bizarre!

Dustin

Sounds like you are describing a cinnamon puerh!

Dustin- It’s strangely a different type of soil than pu’erh…more like a potting soil?

Dustin

LOL! I love that we are getting into different types of dirt flavors in teas!

Yeah, sometimes I think non-tea people would just be boggled by Steepster’s whole deal. haha

I don’t know where else that would translate well aside from tea!
