Review: Stash Sweet Cinnamon Loose Tea

 

Stash Tea was kind enough to send us samples of their teas for fall to review.* Thank you!

Overall Rating:

Taste: Taste: 4 of 5 tea leaves – Quite a good cuppa!
Steepability: 3 of 5 — This tea is a bit delicate (this rating was given because this is a loose tea and requires an infuser of some sort).

Temperature: @200 (boiling point)
Steeped: 3 minutes, loose in a teapot
Served: Nothing added

Here comes another review of a beautiful tea!  The black tea combined with the light cinnamon is so pretty both dry and after steeped.  The aroma and taste aren’t bad either!  This tea smells great while it steeps because you get a little bit of both the black tea and the cinnamon.  Same goes for the flavor, the combination of the tea with the cinnamon it is nice and sweet with a light cinnamon flavor.  I often worry about cinnamon overpowering tea, but I don’t find that here at all.  This is a well-balanced tea with a sweetness (hence the name, I suppose) that was very enjoyable.

With a great warming quality, this tea is great for the cold weather that we are slipping into.  It would be great for a cold morning or to help warm you up after an afternoon outside!  It is very easy to drink with its mild flavor, so I would recommend it to any tea drinker.

Temperature: @200 (boiling point)
Steeped: 3 minutes, in tea ball
Served: Nothing added at first, then honey.

This is a mild black tea with nice cinnamon flavor. At first I expected it to be stronger, but then it was very nice to have such a balance of the tea and cinnamon tastes. I decided to add some honey and it was like dessert for breakfast. Did you ever have toast with butter, cinnamon & sugar? Everyone once in a while my mom used to make that for me as a kid. Well, with the addition of honey this tea reminded me of that sweet cinnamon toast! It’s a comfort drink for sure! If you’re looking for a blast of caffeine in the morning this may not be your top choice. However, it’s perfect for afternoon tea time when you want a little caffeine but not too much.
