The first cup I ever had of this was a big cup of disappointment. I love H&S’s Hot Cinnamon Spice, so I think I was expecting to this to be like that.

Where the Hot Cinnamon Spice is candy-like and sweet, this is more robust and earthy, with more of a savory spiced cinnamon note than a red hot candy note.

I tried it again this morning, hoping the experience was slightly better now that I knew what to expect. Surprisingly, it actually was. I added 2tbsp soy milk and a bit of Sugar Free Gingerbread Torani to bring out some of the sweetness I wanted, and it really worked.

It ended up being a really well-rounded, slightly malty and earthy cup with a strong sweet cinnamon flavor. I’ll still reach for H&S first, but this ended up being a happy surprise after I figured it out.

Today I’d like to sit and sip,
Forget about the world a bit,
Ignore the things I have to do,
And just enjoy a cup or two.
