I steeped this tea the recommended 1 tsp to 1 cup, for 5-6 minutes (I tested it at the suggested 2-3, and it wasn’t strong enough for me), and did not add milk or sugar (although it would taste good with either, or both).
This tea reminds me of the cinnamon heart tea that David’s carried, which I am SO happy about; I’ve been looking for something similar since it was discontinued! This is less earthy (there is no pu’erh in this), but the spice flavouring is similar. However, it has been at least 3 years since I’ve had cinnamon heart, and I may be slightly deluded. I’m not saying this tea tastes like cinnamon, in fact, I can’t pin point exactly what the flavours I taste are… warm, spicy (but nowhere near overwhelming), with a slight aftertaste of nettle; the perfect fall/winter tea (although lets be honest, I will be drinking this year round from now on)!
