Where to Buy: 52Teas
Yeah, we went there. And I’m going to warn you guys now, I DO not have all of the ingredients I need to reblend this one right now–though I imagine I will be ordering them soon–so don’t drag your feet or you’re going to miss out on something incredible.
We took our caffeine-free African honeybush and blended it with organic cinnamon chips and natural flavors (including the essences of butter, brown sugar and cream cheese frosting to name a few). This is the real deal: You’ll swear someone just baked a batch of ooey-gooey cinnamon rolls.
Yep… another amazing blend that proves that Frank is the best at what he does. This is so good! It tastes like a fresh, warm cinnamon roll from the cinnamon roll stand at the mall… liquified! But this is even better because this cinnamon roll won’t make you feel like you need to go jogging afterward.
The honeybush base is perfect for this blend. It is sweet and just a little bit nutty, and together with the butter flavor it tastes a bit like a pastry! It is a mild background for these flavors, and because it’s naturally caffeine-free, it makes the perfect late-night snack when you’re craving something sweet.
The cinnamon is warm and spicy. It isn’t a spicy-hot cinnamon. The essence of brown sugar combined with the cinnamon gives this tisane a flavor that is very much like the filling of a cinnamon roll: sweet and spiced just right. The cream cheese flavoring just pushes this over the top – making it creamy, sweet, and oh-so-sinful!
This one sold out quickly … and I can see why. It’s AWESOME!
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!
