  1. want the old formula back

    Posted by Susan on 12th Mar 2013

    I'm not a fan of cloves even though they are not too overpowering in this formula...it seems to have reduced the flavor to me. In my last order, I did notice a reduction in cinnamon flavor in my last order and a more medicinal/astringency of the clove (it was not what it used to be) and I figured my taste buds had just run their course with this flavor (but now I know it was b/c of the change in formula). I'll order another bag for now, but I have to say I do want that old cinnamon back and will look for something equivalent elsewhere...unless you all can do two cinnamon teas (one a blend w/ cloves and one really cinnamony - and I'm sure you'll have a market for it - I'm not the only one who feels this way I'm sure). This tea helped me get off coffee as I couldn't find a tea that I liked until your cinnamon tea....

  2. Wonderful Taste

    Posted by Julie on 22nd Oct 2012

    I love this tea. It has such a great taste w/o being to powerful. I like to add a little bit of creamer to this tea.

  3. I'm obviously in the minority: I say not enough cinnamon!

    Posted by Greg W. on 3rd May 2012

    Others have written that the cinnamon flavor here is "not overwhelming" and "not over-powering"; I'm afraid I have to say I was let down by what I would call an insipid cinnamon flavor. I suppose "subtle" would be a less pejorative way to say this. Anyway, I definitely want more! Many black chais I've had that contain several spices have had a much stronger cinnamon flavor. Arbor, you need to kick it up a notch! (Make it three notches!) It's still pretty good, with a nice non-tannic, smooth black tea base. Arbor is to be commended for that, and also just for the idea of having a cinnamon tea.

  4. Great Flavor!

    Posted by Nadia on 10th Mar 2012

    This is my first tea from Arbor Teas. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the leaves, they're huge compared to what I've usually had before. The warm cinnamon taste is palatable and not overwhelming. If you don't enjoy the usual bitter aftertaste of black teas you'll love this one. The cinnamon nicely rounds out any bitter aftertastes, giving you a smooth and malty well-rounded cup of tea.

  5. Delightful

    Posted by Georgina R on 15th Jan 2012

    This tea smells and tastes just like cinnamon Dentyne gum. It has a very strong aroma and good not overpowering flavor. One of my favorites.

  6. Heaven!

    It is hard to find a good cinnamon tea. This is to die for. Dark but not bitter heavy natural cinnamon flavor. Wonderful.


We at Arbor Teas firmly believe that tea should be brewed to suit your personal taste. With that being said, here are some recommendations to get you started, but please remember you can make adjustments based on your own personal taste.

There are three main considerations when brewing tea: quantity of tea, water temperature and steeping time.


Quantity of tea: one level teaspoon per 8 oz cup of water


Water temperature: use water that has been heated to a full rolling boil (212° F)


Steeping time: 3-5 minutes

Tip #1: Use fresh water whenever possible - water that has been sitting in your kettle overnight may impart a flat or stale taste to your tea. Be careful not to boil your water for too long. Over boiled water can sometimes impart an unwanted taste.

Tip #2: Keep in mind that brewing your tea for too long can extract undesirable bitterness from the leaves, so steeping time matters! For a stronger brew, don’t steep longer, just use more tea.

There are five significant components found in all tea from the plant camellia sinensis: essential oils, which are the source of tea’s delicious flavor and aroma; polyphenols, which are antioxidants that provide the tea’s brisk flavor and many of its health benefits; phytonutrients, which are small amounts of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids including L-theanine (a very rare molecule that has been found in only three sources including camellia sinensis!) ; enzymes; and methylxanthines, which are a family of alkaloids that include caffeine. Each of these components work differently in the human body and a full description is best left to a medical journal. However, recent research exploring the potential health attributes of tea is leading many scientists to agree that tea, may contribute positively to a healthy lifestyle.
