"We deliver tea that is delicately crafted and not mass produced. Instead of offering many teas of varying quality, we offer a limited line of loose leaf Ceylon tea from the award winning and world-renowned Handunugoda Tea Estate." This is the opening statement in the "About Us" section of the De Vos Tea website. And I have found that this statement reflects well, the quality I continue to find in De Vos Teas.

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!

    Because of your review and the others, for De Vos, I bought their total package. I loved the cinnamon black immediately and it is now a daily need…bought more! It thick and satisfying and I have it with a bit of milk. This is a great substitute for coffee in my view. But I don’t taste the sweetness you mention. It is also a nice substitute for chai, if chai gets too spicy for you. Thanks for the review!
