Gift from SoccerMom (YEA) in order to help me see which is the most similar to cinnamon imperials as part of my quest to take over the world...or something similar

I have had the bagged H&S black cinnamon spice at one or two restaurants before, but this was before Steepster and my desire to try all the teas and find which I like best (IMO you can't find the best because everyone has different tastes).

Anyway the tea was delicious, I love it dearly, deliciously sweet even without sweetener.

Post-Steep Additives: none

Resteep: (2 zarafina cups green-medium-strong) weak, cinnamon but weak, sadness.

Rating: 3/3
