What it says on the tin. A 'Cinnamint' type. The cinnamon is the first thing that's noticed, the mint becomes noticeable later. I really like it and not because it's 'Griffith/Guts'. I added no honey or sugar of any kind.

Not a fan of tea personally, but I have some relatives who most certainly are. I'm sure they will appreciate tea that's been damned eternally to the Vortex of Souls as a fine gift. :ganishka:

Recent orders. My reviews:

Griffith: “Mint Mint Mint! I love mint, but from what I've tried, it's ALL MINT! Snowbud? Where? Nowhere. Honestly, this tastes like flavored water. That's not Griffith's personality. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad, but I didn't detect any cinnamon and I've had stronger mints. And Snowbud is apparently white tea and I tend to prefer other tea 'colors'. Still, not a bad tea, and I did not include sugar or honey, so maybe that'll make a difference. However, some people prefer subtle teas and this is one of them."

Slap heard around the world: “At first, it had a bit of a 'band aid' taste, but not in a bad way and I think it's kind of fitting considering what happened in #337. After that, I can taste the cinnamon spice and things not so nice. I felt a tingle on my tongue and it's still there. Has a little 'slap' to it. So, it starts out 'calm' and then 'SLAP' right on your tongue. I liked it. It's even better with honey.”

Here's my review for 4 of the last teas I ordered:

Princess Charlotte: A lemon-ish aroma, very delicate flavor, a little on the bland side for me.
Locus: Hearty, yet mellow in a way with a sweetish flavor, very tasty.
Guts: A robust tea, somewhat reminiscent of the Zodd blend, but with cinnamon. It's good.
The Slug Count: Unusual, but good. Hard to describe, but I can taste caramel and fruity flavors, fairly mellow sweet flavor.

Here's some pics of these:


I found a bag that was great for storing my tins in. :serpico: It's cat approved.

WOW! That's a nice bag and a cute cat!

Speaking of Guts, someone ordered a large tin. I can understand why. :)

Thanks! :serpico:

I got 5 more teas to try during the sale last month. Here they are:

Brand of Sacrifice: Tasty, with a sweet cherry/citrus flavor.

Theresia: Really good, has a full-bodied, creamy floral taste.

Vortex of Souls: Citrusy aroma and flavor, tastes like fruit punch, pretty good stuff!

Bazuso: This was a strange one. The best I can do is to say it somehow tastes like leather in a good way. Strong, masculine, and has an earthy, bold flavor. Tastes better than it smells. Overall it's a bit much. I can't decide if I like it or not!  :???:

The White Falcon: Very nice, relaxing minty aroma. Hard to describe the flavor, but it's really good. Definitely would have taken Charlotte up on a refill! :ganishka:

I finally decided to add Corkus. http://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/blend.html?blend=115779

Tried for a blend of "drink", bitter and yet charming somehow.

Hmm, interesting! :carcus: Think I'll try it with my next order. Might I make a request for an Ivalera tea with raspberry flavor please? :iva: I think that would be tasty and it reminds me of her sassy attitude.

Hope you enjoy! I'm willing to bet that the Ivalera one is probably very, very good.

Adagio has a free shipping offer today if you didn't use points/GCs, so I couldn't resist getting Ivalera. I have a feeling that it will be a very good tea!

It is good! :iva: At least in my opinion. Thanks again for making it!

Here are the latest teas I tried:


Pippin: unusual, but good! Before steeping it smells like gingerbread. The flavor is spicy and has a bit of a kick, but it's quite a pleasant tea. It has a warming effect apart from just the temperature of the beverage. Would be just the thing for a cold day!

Puck: has a fairly subtle taste, a hint of sweetness and floral aftertaste. It's good and the sprinkles make me happy. After I drank it there was a colorful little ring left in the cup.

Ivalera: very tasty berry flavor and the hint of mint from the candy cane is tasty! I really like it!

Corkus: hard to describe! Sounds strange, but the closest thing I can compare the aroma to is a pair of new shoes. :ganishka: Unusual flavor, but somehow sort of pleasant and a bit coconutty.

Femto: really nice blueberry aroma and flavor! The character may be evil, but the tea is damn good!  :femto:

I too tried Ivalera and loved it! Solid Raspberry! I noticed that the cooler it got, the better it tasted, so I'm thinking that it will make an excellent iced tea!

Thanks to the Anime/Manga Gift exchange on reddit, I was finally able to try Guts! It's quite addictive with a good, strong after taste. I just kept sipping and sipping at it. It's a solid spice tea and like I said before, I can see why it's so popular!
