Dessert Tea

This evening I tried some dessert tea that I bought from Trina’s Tea Kettle.

Trina's Tea Kettle, Tracy, California, Downtown, Small Business SaturdayI always like to visit this nice little shop which has some nice tea related items.

Pinky Up, Dessert Tea, Cinnamon Bun, teaThe tea is Cinnamon Bun by Pinky Up and is a loose leaf herbal tea.

The tea has a very nice aroma and you can definitely smell the cinnamon.

I definitely got the cinnamon taste and there was also a cake taste. However, it was not a definite cinnamon bun taste. However, maybe it is a flavor profile that has to develop so I will have to try it again sometime soon (with a tea ball).

I did like the taste of the tea and it definitely tastes like a dessert 🙂

There are some other Pinky Up flavors that I want to try. One of them is a chocolate mint rooibos. It definitely sounds like it would taste good.
