This is one of our oldest flavored tea blends. John Harney developed it at the beginning of the 1980s. Over the decades its popularity has only grown, so that now it is our most popular tea. People love its combination of strong spices and sweetness. And since there is no sugars (we tested it), it is safe for everyone to enjoy. China black is the base of this tea so the leaves are dark brown. There are pieces of cinnamon bark and orange peel covered with cinnamon dust. The liquor of this tea is a medium brown with orange hues. Hot Cinnamon Spice is medium bodied; yet it fills your mouth with a mélange of spices. This tea is one of our most flavorful (and popular), combining orange with natural cinnamon and natural & artificial cinnamon flavors and cloves.

This is a lovely, very cinnamon-y tea! It is sweet without adding any sweetener and makes a lovely cup. The only down side to it is that I don’t think I would want to have it every day. As an occasional treat, it’s wonderful.
