This is a very flavorful cup of tea. It reminds me a bit of a hot & spicy cinnamon/orange tea, but with a delightful fruit-flavored twist.
The cinnamon dominates this cup, and it is on the warm side! It’s a bit like those sweet-hot cinnamon hearts. YUM!
Of the fruit flavors featured in this tea, the orange is the most prominent. It adds a lovely sweetness to the cup, and the cinnamon accents it so well. It’s very autumnal. I can also taste the peach, apple and papaya flavors. The cranberry is very faint, but I can taste a hint of the tartness from the cranberry in the finish.
The black tea base is not real strong in this blend, and I feel like the flavor of the black tea gets a little lost here. The same is true for the almonds. In fact, had I not read the ingredients, I wouldn’t have known that there were almonds in this blend.
That being said, this is still a very tasty blend, and one I would recommend to those that really enjoy those spicy cinnamon teas. I really like this. It does have a lot going on, but, I can’t really hold that against this tea because it is so fun and flavorful.
This tea is delicious hot or iced – and the flavors do change a little as the tea cools. It becomes a little smoother and softer in taste, and this seems to awaken some of the black tea flavor. Because it is such a “warm” tea (and by warm, I mean the spicy-hot kind of warm) – this tea is perfect now that the air grows cooler! A fantastic tea for autumn!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
