Taster’s Review:

This is a very flavorful cup of tea.  It reminds me a bit of a hot & spicy cinnamon/orange tea, but with a delightful fruit-flavored twist.

The cinnamon dominates this cup, and it is on the warm side!  It’s a bit like those sweet-hot cinnamon hearts.  YUM!

Of the fruit flavors featured in this tea, the orange is the most prominent.  It adds a lovely sweetness to the cup, and the cinnamon accents it so well.  It’s very autumnal.  I can also taste the peach, apple and papaya flavors.  The cranberry is very faint, but I can taste a hint of the tartness from the cranberry in the finish.

The black tea base is not real strong in this blend, and I feel like the flavor of the black tea gets a little lost here.  The same is true for the almonds.  In fact, had I not read the ingredients, I wouldn’t have known that there were almonds in this blend.

That being said, this is still a very tasty blend, and one I would recommend to those that really enjoy those spicy cinnamon teas.  I really like this.  It does have a lot going on, but, I can’t really hold that against this tea because it is so fun and flavorful.

This tea is delicious hot or iced – and the flavors do change a little as the tea cools.   It becomes a little smoother and softer in taste, and this seems to awaken some of the black tea flavor.  Because it is such a “warm” tea (and by warm, I mean the spicy-hot kind of warm) – this tea is perfect now that the air grows cooler!  A fantastic tea for autumn!
