    If you are new to loose leaf tea it may seem a bit overwhelming, but it’s really simple and totally worth the extra time!

    With this Finest Tea Starter Kit you, or a lucky gift recipient, has everything they need to get started brewing loose leaf tea at home.

    To brew the perfect cup of loose leaf tea, follow the brewing instructions on the tea can.  Using your new Hot Cinnamon Spice loose leaf tea and perfect teaspoon, scoop 1 teaspoon of tea into the fine mesh strainer and hang it over your teacup/mug.

    Pour 1 cup of boiling water over the tea strainer.  For the Hot Cinnamon Spice tea, they recommend brewing for 5 minutes.

    Hot Cinnamon Spice is Harney and Son’s most popular flavored tea worldwide.  It is a blend of black teas, three types of cinnamon, orange peel, and sweet cloves with no added sugar.

    We were excited to try this best-seller and couldn’t wait to brew a cup on a cold fall morning.

    The Hot Cinnamon Spice tea has a very strong aroma.  When you open the container you are hit with the smell of cinnamon and cloves and can see pieces of cinnamon bark and orange peel covered in cinnamon dust inside.  The smell reminded me of Big Red gum 🙂

    I was a little worried that this tea would taste as strong as it smelled and have an overpowering cinnamon flavor.  The Hot Cinnamon Spice tea is medium-bodied and I expected a medium brown tea when brewed.

    With the “perfect” teaspoon and fine mesh infuser included in this Finest Tea Starter Kit, brewing a cup of tea was easy.

    To my delight, when I brewed my first cup the house filled with the smell of these warm spices and as I took my first sip I tasted a sweetness with only a hint of cinnamon and clove. 

    This black tea is much sweeter (sweetened naturally – no added sugar) than I expected and is the perfect afternoon pick-me-up or for those who can drink caffeine after dinner, this is the perfect sweet treat.
