Leaf Type: Black
Where to Buy: MarketSpice
Our signature MarketSpice cinnamon-orange tea in a 4oz glass jar. This unique spicy, naturally sweet flavor has become world famous, originating in the historic Pike Place Market in Seattle. We recommend storing this glass jar in the refrigerator to keep the flavorings fresh and moist. Ingredients: Black tea, cinnamon and orange flavorings and spices. Contains no sugar.
There are a lot of cinnamon-orange teas out there, but really, it doesn’t get any better than this. I tried MarketSpice Tea several years ago when a friend from Seattle sent me some. I fell in love with it. Since that time, I’ve tried many cinnamon-orange teas, but all have fallen shy of the mark – that high standard that this tea set for me.
When it comes to this tea, most people either love it or hate it. I guess it’s pretty obvious which side of the spectrum I’m on, right? And honestly, when I get analytical about this tea, I really shouldn’t like it. But I do. Somehow, this tea is just… fantastic.
But I really shouldn’t like it. It is very strongly flavored. So strongly flavored, in fact, that when I first opened my pouch, I could see the moisture on the leaves from the flavoring. The spicy-hot cinnamon here nearly overpowers everything else.
That being said, I still love it. It’s like liquefied red hot candies with a splash of orange. This tea makes me giddy with excitement and brings out the kid in me.
As I said before, it just doesn’t get any better than this.
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!
