A work friend gave me thjis tea bag to try. The cinnamon really comes through nicely with hints of chai. I did not detect any orange or mint. I would drink again but not buy for myself.

Is there anything better than when opposites attract? The master blenders behind Sweet & Spicy ® don’t seem to think so. Bursts of sweet orange tangle with spicy cinnamon in a naturally caffeine free Rooibos red tea infusion.

Ah, this is such a nice tea. It is exactly like the name: sweet and spicy. I had this one before bed last night and enjoyed it greatly. Re-steeped for a second cup but a lot of the flavor had gone. This is a pretty inexpensive grocery store tea. I think I paid $3.49 for 20 bags. What a great deal for a tea I really enjoy. I decided to bump my rating because reaaly, this tea is great.
The weather is really turning around here. It was 17 yesterday -ABOVE zero!- and I heard we could hit 40 next Tuesday. Weird, just weird. Not complaining though!
I like this caffeine-free blend a lot more than the Sweet & Spicy Good Night. In that blend, I don’t think I like the mix of dragonfruit flavoring with that strong Big Red cinnamon flavor that’s also present in this tea. This one is also not nearly as drying even with a longer steep time.
Sweet and cinnamon spicy. As for the other ingredients, I can’t pick up on them individually probably because they’re overridden by the cinnamon flavor. Regardless, they seem well blended. This tea is a lot like Celestial Seasoning’s Bengal Spice but tastes… deeper? and fresher.
This is by far my favorite tea! It was the first I bought when trying to get into tea. The smells of the spices are intense, and fantastic! When brewed hot for over 3 minutes, the spices and the sugar come out in unison, and make the end result taste like a spiced sweet tea!

I received this Good Earth Sweet & Spicy herbal tea as a Christmas gift for Christmas 2016. Teabags were sealed, but I could smell an intense sweet cinnamon aroma through the foil wrapper. :-) Each teabag has a quote on the tag, which makes for a more interesting tea experience right out of the gate. My first cup was sampled without knowing all the ingredients.
Rooibos, chicory root, natural flavor, rosehip, cinnamon, lemongrass, peppermint, chamomile, ginger root, anise seed, orange oil, orange peel.

Once opened, the aroma permeated my nose and the kitchen immediately! Seriously, what an Amazing Cinnamon Aroma!! There is no way I could discern all the ingredients, but in the dry bag I did smell the cinnamon right away, followed by peppermint. What was that third main ingredient? YES!! Chicory, that’s it! In the wet leaves I mainly smelled cinnamon & chicory, with a lesser peppermint presence. Cup aroma was quite refreshing with a real sweetness, and a strong burst of cinnamon, mixing very well with the chicory root. The mint was swallowed by the other two aromas, and was barely—if at all—noticeable. My palate came alive with an intense cinnamon flavor!! WOW!! What a spicy kick! :D The chicory root was right along in flavorful tandem with the cinnamon! The mint was only slightly noticeable at the back of my tongue after swishing the tea and inhaling oxygen. After swallowing, the cinnamon & chicory rose up & clung to the back of my tongue and throat for several minutes!

I had a second cup on January 24—my Godchild Chloe’s 15th Birthday!! :D Roughly 8 oz of water, at 195 degrees, for 3.5 minutes. After reading the ingredients, the dry bag aromas changed somewhat, but these aromas were true to what I smelled. Intense cinnamon & chicory root, and YES, definitely the rosehips came through—neck & neck with the chicory, while the mint & lemongrass honestly seemed shy, thus taking a back seat. Similar sensory observations in the wet leaf aromas were noted, which were less intense all around compared to the dry leaf. Cup aromas are lively cinnamon & chicory root, as well as rosehips, while the mint was drowned out by the other three scents. Cup color was also hued a pleasant red—reddish brown. The tea’s flavor profile exhibited similar intensities (as in cup #1) on my palate and at the back of my tongue/throat. The rosehips definitely played on my palate as well, lightly taming the vigor of the cinnamon & chicory, and added a sweet smoothing aspect to the tea experience.
Good Earth Sweet & Spicy herbal tea, is definitely very flavorful & delicious!! A definite Christmas tea in the future. It is so flavorful, I could drink it anytime! Quite possibly the best herbal tea I’ve tasted—I really do like spicy teas. :-) I’m sure Chloe would appreciate this tea as well. :-)

This is like an orange caught on fire and someone dumped a cinnamon-licorice mint julep on it to put it out. The friend who gave this to me is a horrible monster.
I am sending a sample of this to mtchyg because I am essentially his sassy and difficult little sister. “HERE TRY THIS HORRIBLE THING” is frequently my approach to our friendship.

This is a flavored rooibos herbal in a bag. The first thing I noticed when tasting is the lack of that harsh scratchy woody rooibos taste. I don’t even smell it. I like that. It tastes predominantly of cinnamon. What little (by my standards) heat I catch I think is the ginger grabbing as the cinnamon passes by. There is orange, chamomile, and anise that add sweetness without calling much attention to themselves. The lemongrass is more fill in than a real note. I thought it was a fun cup
Dad is coming home today so thanks all for the prayers and support.
I love this tea… I feel like this is something you could give to someone who proclaims to hate tea, and they would still like it. In fact I have made coworkers try this and everyone has liked it. It is spicy though, so beware of that. I personally could dump cinnamon and ginger into most coffee or tea I drink, so my spiciness in drink tolerance may be a bit higher than most. I find I do not need to sweeten this tea, at all, which is also very nice. Great for when it’s a little chilly outside. A coworker one time said it smells like Christmas in a cup, just that good, warm, spicy, homey kind of feel. Love it, keep several boxes on hand at all times! I steep it a while, so the spiciness really develops. I don’t find it becomes bitter with the additional time, whatsoever.

Taste: This tea was actually a recommendation by a family member. I was on the lookout for something new since I haven’t had tea in a long time. I was also drawn to the name of this tea how could tea from a tea bag possibly be already sweet? So I decided to give it a try & I must say it’s one of my favorites! Since buying it the first time a month or so ago I have already brought another box. The aroma is cinnamon with a spice kick to it & the flavor to match cinnamon spice with a nice sweetness. This tea could also replace a sweet treat imo. Another plus is that it’s caffeine free, I can enjoy it at night without having to worry if I’ll have trouble falling asleep. Steeping I find that 3 minutes is good for a cup, 4 minutes the flavor can be too strong. The bag last for about 2 steeps with the second one being on the lighter side. As for the downside I read it’s best to avoid tea with natural flavors but this one taste soo good, I know that’s most likely where the sweetness comes from because all other ingredients listed aren’t sweet.Overall I like this tea a lot!
