A little follow-up note.
I bought a sampler box of Numi teas and Amber Sun was in it. I’m guessing it’s fresher than what I had from my aunt’s stash. I can taste a hint of cardamom now and a little sweet vanilla that in combination with the rooibos and honeybush, kind of smooths the earthiness of the turmeric, which isn’t overpowering in this blend. Neither the cardamom nor the vanilla is still as strong as I was hoping for and I still can’t taste the cinnamon but I’m inclined to bump up the rating.
