This one accompanied me to work this morning. I think I’ve tried this one before in its previous incarnation (Monkey Bread?), but it was a while ago and I can honestly say that I don’t really remember. I might be getting mixed up.
Anyway, I used 1.5 tsp of leaf, and gave it three minutes in boiling water. It came out fairly light in colour, so no additions. It smells wonderfully cinnamonny, though. Perfect for a cold morning!
To taste, the main flavour is definitely cinnamon. It’s on the sweet side, though, reminiscent of cinnamon sugar you’d sprinkle on doughnuts. There’s a hint of glace icing lurking just in the aftertaste, which is pleasant, and the cup as a whole is smooth and eminently sippable. The only thing I would have liked is a little more of a “bun” flavour. A nice, bready black base would have done wonders here. Still, it’s by no means bad. A sample pouch I’ll have no problem finishing.
