This is my 100th tasting note!!! Anyway after an exhausting weekend seriously I am ready for the work week to start so I can recover from this whirlwind of a weekend. Soccer game for teen about 100 miles away on Saturday morning rush back so he can dress for 8th grade dance then off to olive garden to drop him and friends, then on to dance but not before taking lots of pics. Hubby insistent on going to the Dynamo’s soccer game while son is at dance so then rush to get to game watch game rush home to pick son up from dance wait in long carrider line and well it’s just getting boring so I’ll spare you but you get the point right? I’m not called “soccermom” just for grins! :)
Anyway on Friday night I got in two orders one from Rishi one from Silk Road and it was like having a personal Christmas if at Christmas you got all teas. Well I’ve been waiting for awhile to order this one it’s been on my shopping list from pretty much my first week here. I couldn’t wait to steep it up and so I popped the top tonight and to my surprise it smelled like homemade cinnamon bread yes you know the kind with lots of cinnamon and sugary icing YUM! So I couldn’t wait to taste it but I did I waited the five minutes (rather impatiently but waited all the same) it turned into this bright red liquor and I kinda started to freak out because it does have hibiscus in the ingredients and I don’t know if I like hibiscus yet or not I know people tend to have strong opinions on hibiscus around here so this made me nervous. That and the smell changed to a tarty smell (I am guess the hibiscus?).
So on to the taste the taste is like this it starts out slightly tart and cinnamony and then it seems to get a little more tart but ends up going down smooth and sweet. This is a nice one I really like the tarty smoothness for all those in your face fans out there if you like hibiscus and cinnamon this one is dynamite! I like it I don’t know how often I will find myself drinking it but I do quite like it!
