I found this tea at the local supermarket. Before I settled on it, there were hundreds of other tea brands to choose from. I have done quite a number of Ketepa and Kericho Gold flavored teas. I settled on Melvins as it’s also a popular tea brand and I have only reviewed its Vanilla Flavored tea range, see the review here.
The packaging is compact and neat with 25 tea bags inside. The smell of cinnamon is not immediately recognizable. The tea bag pack is covered in burgundy with the sweet cinnamon flavor boldly written on the front and the directions on how to prepare and ingredients listed at the back of the pack. When you bring the tea bag closer, the strong aroma of cinnamon is felt.
With this flavor, I first boiled water and then milk. I put the tea bag in a cup and added very little of the boiled water and followed by the hot milk. I let it infuse for 3 minutes and not too long as I wanted to take some hot creamy tea. Added some sugar to add to the creamy flavor. This combination brings out a creamy sweet cinnamon taste.
I have another 24 tea bags to experience. I found that this flavor warms you and I think it is perfect for those chilly mornings or evenings.
With every tea flavor I experience I have to go out of my way to find out what I am benefiting from it. According to researchers, cinnamon has high anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, these are the two benefits that stood out for me amongst the many benefits that cinnamon has.
