7 Tasting Notes
Simply my favorite cinnamon-y type tea that I’ve yet tried. For those of you that remember Big Red gum, it smells a bit like that when the leaves are dry, but when steeped, there is also a lovely spicey smell and flavor along with the strong cinnamon notes. This tea is incredibly comforting and just delicious. It will be staying in my stock for sure.
I actually quite like this tea. I brew the loose tea and use a little more than normal per cup, and also steep it a bit longer;I think this definitely brings out the plum flavor more. My favorite bit of this tea though is the lovely smell and the gorgeous color when it’s brewed. Absolutely beautiful.
I’m a professional singer, and honestly, this stuff works! I drink this often during long rehearsals and before concerts.
Although anise is not my favorite (and the smell of it hits you full in the face when you first take it out of the box), the actual brewed taste is quite nice. I typically add some honey to both lower the anise taste a bit and to soothe my throat further.
This is one of my favorite chai blends. I like to brew it strong; for me, at least, that brings the pepper notes out more. I’ll drink this tea iced or hot, but I prefer it hot. Lately I’ve been adding a touch of honey to it, but I also think that it’s delicious on its own.
