Spicy, warm cinnamon blends with sweet vanilla, soothing chamomile, rooibos, and sarsaparilla for a tea that's both soothing and satisfying. Simply delicious!
Love that the rooibos doesn't overtake the flavor of this tea! I mostly taste cinnamon (but not too heavy), with a hint of vanilla. Steeped at 195F x 3 min. Added a little honey to sweeten and bring out the vanilla. The sarsaparilla takes a back seat in this tea. Perhaps it is merely adding sweetness? The tea pairs well with a bit of vanilla almond creamer. Very comforting blend to drink in the evening--especially with the relaxing properties of chamomile.
The cinnamon is way too strong. Tasted like I melted a Red-Hot into my tea. I have to steep it with a different black tea to mellow out the flavor. I mixed it with both Adagio's Black Cream, & Bigelow's French Vanilla. Both work well to bring this to a manageable level of spice.
Not one of my favorite Stash teas, but not bad either. I’d like a bit more vanilla in this.
A good cold weather tea, with a warm and comforting flavor.
