Experience the magic of a truly amazing Cinnamon tea. Made with high quality Ceylon Tea and Ceylon Cinnamon Bark oil. Instead of inserting tiny pieces Cinnamon bark in the tea bag (not very effective in such small quantities) we infused this tea bag with ultra premium Cinnamon Bark oil which gives it a wonderful aroma and a truly sophisticated taste. That means it has real Cinnamon with zero artificial or natural flavors. No other Tea in the world will come close to the refined taste or deliver the astounding benefits of this Cinnamon tea.

I love cinnamon tea – especially when there is a delicious, true cinnamon taste that is both sweet and spicy … just like the spice itself. And this Ceylon Cinnamon Tea from Cinnamon Vogue is a perfect example of what I’m talking about! This is so yummy!
The cinnamon is strong but it doesn’t overwhelm the black Ceylon tea base. The black tea has a bright, brisk flavor … it isn’t what I’d refer to as a “bold” tea, I think I’d refer to it as a medium-strength tea with a full flavor. There is a fair amount of astringency to this tea that starts toward the tail of the sip, and a few moments into the after-sip, I notice a slight “pucker” sensation inside my mouth. It is not unpleasant, however, and it seems to draw attention to the delicious cinnamon taste of this tea.
After reading the above description, I’m starting to understand why this tea is distinctly different from other cinnamon teas. The sachet has been infused with the cinnamon oil. After reading this, I thought that this may mean that there would be a greasy/oily residue on the surface of my tea, but, there isn’t. There is just very pleasing cinnamon taste that is – as I said previously – sweet and spicy … just like the spice! This tastes like real cinnamon, it’s not overly sweet like some cinnamon teas (that end up tasting more like cinnamon red-hot candies than the spice), and it’s not overly hot or spicy. It’s a pleasing balance of both spicy and sweet.
I really like this tea! If you like cinnamon … this is one tea that you really should try!
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!
