Review of Sweet & Spicy Caffeine Free

5 of 103 of 53 of 557 of 100

The aroma of this tea is very strongly cinnamon which, if you enjoy that smell is a good thing. Sadly I do not detect any of the other spices or ingredient listed (sad, since I think a nice hint of orange as promised would have been great)

The flavor is also primarily cinnamon and I can maybe just barely taste the rooibus. I love cinnamon but I am sad that you cannot taste anything else in the blend. The aftertaste is slightly bitter which I assume is from the Chicory.

Overall I was not very impressed by this tea but I did still enjoy it.

I also thought this tea was dominated by the cinnamon!

I wish I could recommend a substitute but I have yet to try a spiced rooibos or spiced herbal blend that I really like. If you can handle the caffeine, though, I absolutely love Rishi Tea's masala chai (it's loose-leaf, and uses black tea as a base). Rishi does make a caffeine-free Rooibos Chai, I think called West Cape Chai, but I haven't tried it.
