Another case of me convincing myself I was going to like something, but I didn’t.

This is a seasonal (Christmas) red tea, with cinnamon and vanilla.

Unfortunately, there is neither cinnamon nor vanilla to be found.  And red tea is okay, but it really needs another flavor to perk it up; there’s nothing bitter, sharp, or sour about it.

Fortunately, it makes a great base with which to add flavors.  I keep adding the lavender sugar from the Savory Spice Shop that I got for Christmas.  (Thank you Ann!)
