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.
