As noted before I really do enjoy their cute pyramid silken infusers with fake leaf tag.

Steep Information:
Amount: 1 teabag

Served: Hot

Tasting Notes:
Smell: Clove - Orange, reminds me of christmas
Flavor: orange, tea, spice
Body: full
Aftertaste: woody spice
Liquor: light reddish brown

Too much spice, not enough tea. I know it says cinnamon but I tasted clove and couldn't find the cinnamon.

Post-Steep Additives: Added sugar - also added honey (two separate brews) the sweetness in both cases brought out more of the orange, smoothed the flavor and gave a nice sweetness.

Resteep:
Weak spiced water, no tea flavor.
Not recommended

Rating: 1.5/3

Not a bad tea, but too spiced for my tastes
