|"Ceylon is naturally sweet, and the cinnamon brings out the spicy notes."|
Cinnamon Black Tea, though the name may sound ordinary, is no ordinary tea. It is a dark rich Ceylon paired with the world's best cinnamon. If you put this tea in a clear bag you would actually see cinnamon dust settling at the bottom.
The smell is a strong Ceylon black tea, with just a subtle background of cinnamon.
I brewed this tea as I do any black Ceylon. I used fresh cold water and brought it just to the boil. I used one teaspoon of tea and let it steep for 6 min. This created a lovely, full bodied cup of black tea.
As it steeps, I could smell the cinnamon. The flavor was deep and smooth with a nice touch of spice. Amazingly, this was not overly flavored. I believe, after tasting it, that only pure cinnamon was used and no cinnamon oil or flavoring. This created a fantastic cup of black tea, with an undertone of cinnamon!
Ceylon is naturally sweet, and the cinnamon brings out the spicy notes. I really enjoyed this tea with milk and a touch of sugar. I could drink this hot throughout the fall, winter and spring. And I suspect that it would make a fantastic iced tea in the summer!
De Vos Tea continues to impress me with the flavor and quality of their tea!
