Recent Tasting Notes
This is, hands down, my most prized tea. I picked it up years ago when visiting Ste Anne’s Spa and gave it as a gift to my mom. She apparently didn’t fully appreciate it and it sat in her cupboard since. So, I brought it home.
Despite sitting in a cupboard since 2011…it tastes AMAZING. Such a beautiful strong cinnamon flavour. It’s great black, or if you add a bit of sweetener it’s like cinnamon heart candies. I love that I can distinctly taste both the cinnamon and the ceylon tea.
I’ve been able to resteep this tea over 5 times, and every time I still get a wonderful brew. The only reason I end up tossing the leaves is because I want to change flavours otherwise I’m sure it could keep going strong.
Not sure when the next time is that I’ll be at the Spa since I now have a two year old, and it’s 2.5 hours away…but I think I’ll be placing an order in June as a birthday gift to myself ;)
Flavors: Cinnamon, Clove, Sweet
Backlog from yesterday:
My tea mule came back from Florida a few days ago with my Nina’s Paris and Golden Moon orders in tow. I picked them up from her yesterday, and while I was there, she said that I should make some of her herbal tea. Alas, I am a snob, and suggested that we try my tea instead, but she insisted that I try this one instead. (I make sure to actually make the tea myself, since I"m sure she would have underleafed it).
Dry, the strongest smell is of the orange peel and fennel. Brewed, though, you can definitely taste the chamomile. My mother, who doesn’t like fennel, said she could taste the fennel, but I couldn’t. I am not a huge fan of chamomile, but I do admit it has its uses.
One caveat: the description of the tea on the company’s website does NOT list all of the tea’s ingredients. I tried to remember what I could from reading the tin yesterday: this tea contains more than just mint, rooibos and chamomile.
