I absolutely love it when a friend surprises me with a gift of some new tea to try. This week, I got to sample some Samovar Tea that tea friend Ruth picked up on her recent trip to Alaska!
The scent when I opened the package was absolutely divine. It was redolent of cinnamon and immediately made me think of red hot cinnamon candies. I looked at the label and saw that this blend contains black tea, cinnamon and orange oils, clove, granulated lemon and orange, and orange peel.
I'm happy to report that it was every bit as delicious as it sounds! I've been drinking more iced tea than hot tea lately, but this tea was so good, I immediately added it to the week's tea rotation. With the sweetness of the cinnamon and citrus, this would be a wonderful "dessert tea," and I'm so grateful Ruth thought of me with this delicious gift!
