This is one of my favourites. I think that Marg was the one who originally mentioned this one and that was the reason I tried it a long time ago. Yum. It is one of my 'go to' teas.


I also tried it awhile back because of Marg and love it!

Cinnamon Rooibas Chai (I think it's called).

I liked Glitter and Gold. I will decide more after a second cup. First cup was I liked it but not enough for a big tin. I may steep it a bit longer on the second cup to decide.

Cinnamon rooibos chai wasn't bad at all. Very cinnamon-y. It was a nice drink for a very cold morning at the hockey rink. I don't think I would buy a big tin since I am not a superfan of cinnamon, but I wouldn't pass it down if someone offered me a mug.

Definitely a winter tea. Good to drink after snow shoveling the 5 inches of snow we got

This one surprised me. I liked it. That's two rooibos teas and I liked them both. It was so nice just now after coming in from my run.

I am behind in my tea tasting as it has been that kind of week.

I am enjoying a cup of Glitter and Gold. It is nice but I think for my second cup I need to steep it longer before I actually decide if I would buy a tin.

definitely not a fan of today's cinnamon chai rooibos. I don't like cinnamon hearts at all though, and, it reminded me of that.

is there anyone who could compare today's cinnamon rooibos chai with cinnamon heart for me? i really liked today's tea and am wondering if cinnamon heart is worth a shot since i prefer black tea. (i didn't like hot lips, the cinnamon green tea.)

Yes I really liked it too and I normally don't like English Breakfast that much.

meh. I had it for breakfast, since that seemed appropriate, but, I wouldn't buy it. I buy David's tea more for the the fun teas, and, keep some tea bags at home for regular tea (for visitors).....

ETA: not that I wouldn't give visitors fun tea - but, when I've tried in the past, they seem to want regular tea.

Dee, I used to really like Cinnamon heart, very dark and more intense cinnamon flavor. Now, it seems I've drank it too much and can't stand it anymore. I have the bottom of a tin left. PM me your address and I'll send it to you so you can try it!

I love black tea!
After really enjoying trying out some of the new teas I felt this was okay.

I'm excited to try this because I have David's organic breakfast and enjoy it, but I REALLY like English breakfast teas. I know they're plain, but I still find a quality difference in loose leaf tea so I rarely buy bags anymore (unless it's bags of loose leaf).

But right now I'm enjoying my coffee and rum cream too much to switch to tea. :wink:

It was good. I really liked it. I've never really enjoyed bagged English Breakfast. But it's been a long time since I've had any.

Main squeeze - I was thinking I wouldn't like it because of the maté tea. But I do actually kind of like it.

South American style tea that is high caffeine I believe. I have tried a different flavour once before and wasn't impressed with it but this one was good.
