I couldn’t stand the thought of having to drink another cup of this cinnamon hibiscus symphony to chaoskampf again. I guess I disliked it a lot more than previously thought. I only had a mug’s worth left of it so I ate it, instead. You know what? I think I like it better this way! Tart hibiscus, spicy cinnamon, buttery popcorn, nutty nuts, fruity fruit… Yes, not bad like this.

Maybe this is not so much a tea tasting note…

LOL. Hibiscus I am not sure I ever ate, but I had this dried cherry-dried apple-coconut and other fruits infusions which yes got eaten after the infusion!. But hibiscus or cinnamon, hmm, not sure I believe you :p

OK! OK! I will admit that I was lucky enough not to have any full cinnamon sticks left in my sample bag- there was just a light coating of dust on the ingredients. lol. As for hibiscus, I strangely like the taste, on it’s own, a lot sacrilege! I’m really bad for munching away at my blends, both dry and wet, however. I sometimes even do it without thinking. The worst experience I’ve had was unthinkingly plopping a dry yuzu rind, from that yuzu temple tea, into my mouth after making some. I couldn’t taste anything for an hour and my sinuses felt “very cleansed”.

I am going to have to try eating hibiscus now – it will be all your fault if it goes as wrong as I fear. But I got to try it!

I never had yuzu, real or in tea. It´s going on the list of things to try one day – I love sour things (extra sour gummies, salted sour plums)!

I apologize in advance for the hibiscus. At least you will have a general idea as to how deprived my taste buds are! ;)

I started my Steepster loose leaf adventure back in 2012. I can’t say I’m completely new anymore, but I still view oolong as a magical, extraterrestrial creature that unfurls in water.

Tea Preferences: My absolute favourites are the floral inclined oolong and white teas. I also enjoy unflavoured green and black teas. Puerh is a hit or miss.

Fruit, cedar, anise, and vanilla are good. Black licorice, bergamot, and cheap chocolate are less good. Jasmine, cinnamon, and hibiscus are usually too strong in teas for my taste, but otherwise I like these flavours!

Ratings:

95-100: A Personal Favourite; I’m never without this tea.

90-94: Great! I’ll try to keep a small amount around.

80-89: Enjoyable; I may buy more at some point.

70-79: Nice, but not something I’d drink often. I may have a few problems with it.

50-69: Something about this tea falls flat for me. Still drinkable.

30-49: This isn’t a particularly pleasant cup.

1-29: There’s no way to put it nicely..
