This year I am really digging this tea. It is Hot Cinnamon Spice touched with a little mellow sweetness, and I have been moving towards it just about every morning. It’s giving me a lively little jolt, just what the doctor ordered.

I’m sipping on my last cup of this while I scroll through tasting notes and catch up on what everyone has been up to. I hope you are all well! I have to say I’m happy it’s Friday, and I’m happy that I have no plans this evening. For my own sanity I’m taking the weekend off from studying, so I’m almost giddy with the thought of having a weekend full of nothing to do. Except write tea notes… and read a book just for fun… yep, that’s all the excitement I require for the next few days!
Ok, tea note… This could easily be a fall/winter staple for me. It’s a lot like Hot Cinnamon Spice but with a bit of an apple note at the end of the sip. It’s perfect for cooler weather although I’d happily drink it year round. That said, there’s nothing overly special about this tea. There are a million cinnamon teas out there, and while this one is nice I do wish the apple was more flavor forward. I think that would take this from being a run of the mill tea to something truly special.
I picked this up the last time I was in store because I had never really tried an apple spice blend before and it smelled wonderful.
I tried it as just a normal hot tea and was not let down. It had a very warm apple cider feel, but with more spices and a stronger flavor.
I had a thought while sipping my second cup that this tea may make a wonderful ice cream!
So last night I set off on a culinary of making a no churn tea infused ice cream. That I then got to enjoy tonight (and surprise my boyfriend with some topped with homemade apple pie filling). The ice cream came out wonderful, creamy and had that same flavor I was looking for! Tasted up like the tea, and I only used 2 teaspoons worth of tea for the whole thing. While it was a little work to make it was worth it and something I now want to do with many of my other teas.

I made a small order from Harney & Sons during their Cyber Monday sale – just this and one other tea. It was just under $13 total, which I found extremely reasonable for two 3-4 ounce tins.
I don’t normally enjoy sweetener in teas, but I do like Harney’s Hot Cinnamon Spice regardless of its very sweet taste. I guess because it reminds me of Red Hots or Hot Tamales, so the candylike sweetness sort of makes sense? That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.
So this is basically Hot Cinnamon Spice with a bit of apple thrown in. It’s sweet candy cinnamon à la Red Hots. The apple is more subtle than I expected, and it comes in mostly at the end of the sip, once the strong and sweet cinnamon has calmed down a bit. It’s a bit of an apple cider / apple juice flavor, which I think is perfect for this application.
Overall, I do really like it, as I knew I would. It’s like Hot Cinnamon Spice +. ;)
Perfect for autumn & winter!
But keep in mind, if you don’t like Hot Cinnamon Spice, you definitely won’t like this one either!
