From DAVIDsTEA

How it tastes:
A classic oolong base with a comforting cinnamon aroma.

You can say so long to your average oolong. This cinnamon-scented blend gives a comforting twist to a traditional favourite. Each sip envelops your senses with a cozy aroma radiating from the warm glow of your cup. The unique scenting process allows a more subtle fragrance of cinnamon to come through the tea leaves.

What makes it great:
• An innovative and unique scented tea from Taiwan!
• The cozy, non-overpowering cinnamon flavour is the result of its unique scenting process: cinnamon bark is mixed and heated with the tea, binding essential oils to the leaves.
• An approachable twist to a classic oolong.

Ingredients
Oolong tea, scented with cinnamon.

Drank on 1/12/22
Delightful smooth oolong, not as much cinnamon flavor in the beverage as I expected from the scent of the dry leaf. This is highly drinkable and would be a great oolong for newbies. This would be something I would be comfortable sharing with friends who are maybe new to tea or usually only drink one of two blends. Didn’t need sugar or anything added to it. Great just on its own.
This tea was sent to me in a free care package from Davids Tea.

I was grateful to receive a care package from David’s Tea a couple of weeks ago. They gifted me 4-5 teas plus a teapot set, with two massive mugs. I gave the Cinnamon Oolong the first try of the teas…and I was in heaven.

First Session: Western Brewed (195F, 3-4 mins)

I had to take pause to allow the tea to absorb on the palate. It was deeply rich and warming; it also reminded me of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. I also thought about my great Aunts who’d boil cinnamon sticks in water to make us “herbal tea.” A flood of memories and good vibes joined me on this tea journey.

Second Session and On: Gongfu’d

I decided to give this a try gongfu’d. I finished the sample with 8g in 120ML gaiwan. I let the first steep run 15-20 seconds. It was very rich and cinnamon-y. It was soothing and really opened the sinuses. I brewed the following steeps at 15 secs (3x), 25 secs (2x), 30 secs (1x), and 60 secs (2x). I lost the flavor after the first 60 second mark, but I wanted to do my best to extract everything from the leaf. I find that this one brews well gongfu cha a lot more than western, but if I were to brew for friends/family, I’d make it in the big glass pot that David’s Tea included with the gift set.

PS. I DID order 100g after I received a mysterious gift card in my work email. I cannot get enough of this tea!

I’ve said for a while now that I just don’t like oolong teas. At best they are ok, at worst they are everything about green teas that I don’t like.

This one is changing my mind. And no, its not just the cinnamon scent, this seems to be a very good tea in its own right. The cinnamon is just an extra perk.

Now I have to figure out what other types of oolong might be similar to this.

(DavidsTea 188)

Pricey tea, so I spent some reward points. It’s not bad – the cinnamon scenting is interesting, and there’s some really nice roasted oolong flavour, but not a favourite.

Gongfu!

I love this new tea sooo much and I will eventually write a longer and more proper tasting note for it when I have more energy, but for now here’s my little snippet from IG for the session I had earlier in the week…

Not terribly unlike the process used with jasmine teas, this Taiwanese oolong is scented with heated cinnamon. The result is a truly unique oolong with just the right kiss of warming cinnamon!! This tea session is just so cozy with notes of raisins, golden toasted nuts, brown sugar, and fresh baked sweet bread and pastries. Things like cinnamon rolls, hot cross buns, and cinnamon raisin bread spring to mind with each steep & it’s just so approachable and inviting! It won’t be long before I need to restock because this has genuinely become one of those teas that I can turn to no matter what mood I’m in.

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.

I will have to look into this one

Daylon R Thomas

Is it available in the U.S., or Canada only?

Evol Ving Ness

Aren’t all their teas available in the States too?

Daylon R Thomas

Most of them are, but I couldn’t find this one on their website. I searched Cinnamon Oolong exactly and only got their other cinnamon teas. It didn’t appear on the oolong catalogue either.

Tiffany :)

Often times the USA will just be delayed in getting teas/teaware, they don’t tend to have many exclusives. Maybe Kelly can comment if knows if it will just be a Canadian exclusive?

Roswell Strange

Not sure when it’s gonna go up but I’m like 90% sure it’s not Canadian exclusive
