This has a taste and even mouthfeel akin to Big Red gum, right down to that powdery texture left on the tongue. It’s not as hot as, say, fiery red hots (and honestly I’m glad; I’m not nuts about that white sugar+dry heat flavor in tea…don’t mind in candy occasionally but not tea), but it’s definitely on the spectrum of cinnamon sweets. I don’t dislike it, but I’m not sure I’d reach for it again. The gum association is quite strong, and there’s an artificial sweetener aftertaste (nothing’s listed though; it might be a case where it evokes the gum so much I then just start phantom-tasting the gum and not just the tea) I don’t really think I want to drink in tea. Not terrible, but I’d be fine having sampled it just this once.
