Tea Advent Calendar Day 13 – Organic Cinnamon Rooibos Chai

Well, I wasn’t thrilled when I saw today’s tea, Organic Cinnamon Rooibos Chai, especially after the last tea which had a lot of cinnamon. Don’t get me wrong, I love cinnamon, but in some things a little goes a long way, and in most cases, tea is one of those things.

After opening the tin and sniffing the contents, I wasn’t sure what to think. Yes, the cinnamon scent was extremely strong. But at the same time it evoked strong feelings of nostalgia because it smelled like a package of those red cinnamon hearts you buy at Valentine’s Day..

I set the water to heat, and then steeped the tea for 5 minutes with near boiling water. The cinnamon heart smell increased with the addition of hot water, so I was hopeful that this tea might be better than the last cinnamon one.

Happily, I was not disappointed! This tea already had a bit of sweetness to it which tempered the dry cinnamon taste, and made it taste wonderful! In fact it almost tasted like someone had dissolved a few red cinnamon hearts in the tea!

I really like this tea, and I think I would give it another try, especially on a chilly day when the heat from the cinnamon might at least give the illusion of warmth.
