My friend who came over and drank The White Wolf with me today brought this tea with her! She bought it while at a convention and had not been to a Teavana before. I had forewarned her! She let them over pour the first tea but then out her foot down with the next two.

She made this at home and was disappointed with it. She said she really didnt get the flavors she thought she should have, so I made a pot for us to share. This time she really liked it. I showed her that there is very VERY little oolong in this. I saw lots of rooibos (but thankfully didn’t TASTE lots of rooibos) and the usual plethora of flavoring bits you find in their tea, but not much TEA.

It was, surprisingly, a very drinkable cup. I would have to say that the cinnamon was the dominant flavor for me, not like Hot Cinnamon Spice from Harney but still in the forefront. Next came the nut flavor and burnt sugar with vanilla. This would be a great tea for a holiday party to appeal to non-tea drinkers. It came off as very sweet but there was no rock sugar in it – we checked!

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about twelve years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
