They really have captured that breadiness that real gingerbread cake has. The spices are sweet and mild – definitely a kid-friendly type of gingerbread as opposed to a sharper, zingier one. (I’d personally like a zingier one, but I can’t fault them here.) I see cloves in the mixture, but I don’t really taste them – it’s primarily cinnamon and ginger to me. As per the usual for S&V, I need to use a lot of it per cup, and I’ve found all the dessert type teas are far better with a pretty generous sweetening. I haven’t tried this with milk, but I bet a little would be good.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Cake, Cinnamon, Ginger

Wife, mom of 2 crazy young kids (and 3 cats, if they count). Used to be a professional tree hugger, now I stay at home hobbit-like and teach the kids to love the trees. Also hobbit-like, I love reading, tea, second breakfasts, cooking and food in general, and gardens. (I can’t really say I love gardening since where I live, it’s too dratted hot for too much of the year to actually do it.) I am always on the search for a good flavored decaf black tea. Suggestions are more than welcome!

I tend to like my teas strong, so I use more than most people when I brew. Don’t be put off a tea because I say I used 4 tsp to brew 12 oz or something – that’s just me.

PS – Unlike a hobbit, my toes are not furry. I just feel the need to clarify.
