Years ago, my pilates instructor recommended this tea to me and I fell in love with it instantly. I recently rediscovered it and have been craving it daily. I tend to stay away from caffeine after lunch during the week so I love that they also offer a caffeine free herbal blend.
Ingredients: Red Rooibos, Chicory Root, Natural Flavors, Rosehips, Cinnamon, Lemongrass, Peppermint, Papaya, Chamomile, Panax Ginseng, Anise Seed, Dandelion Root, Ginger Root, Orange Oil, Orange Peel.
With quite a varied and interesting list of ingredients, this tea could certainly go either way. Either blend spectacularly or taste like the equivalent of a train wreck in a mug. Luckily for you and me, it works deliciously!
Aroma: The tea steeps quickly and even though they advise 3-4 minutes, within a minute you can really smell the tea. I usually brew it for 2-3 minutes and the flavors are all really present. The longer you steep, the spicier and sweeter the tea becomes.
Before you even take a sip, the aromas draw you in. Intensely cinnamon with a hint of mint underneath, I anticipate my first sip every time I brew this!
Taste: As promised at first sniff, the scent of the cinnamon represents a huge flavor boost to the tea. The spiciness of the cinnamon blends with a subtle peppermint and anise flavor, with the ginger and papaya peeking through. The tea is fairly sweet, as the name implies. You may wonder if there has been a sweetener added, but the tea is as is. Delicious, sweet and spicy.
Recommendation: Perfect for cinnamon lovers! Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
