This tea was sent to me courtesy of Soccermom in a swap. I was in the mood for a non caffeinated tea tonight as today has been crazy and I needed something relaxing. This tisane smells like a holiday tisane (spices and citrus/berry scent). I noticed raisins in the mixture and other berry colored fruits. Once steeped, the liquor is deep hibiscus red with a tart berry flavor with an aftertaste of spice and berry. I’m not sure what exact spice it is, smells a bit like cinnamon or nutmeg, but can’t decide what it is I’m tasting for the berry. Might help if I look up this tisane online to see what it is I’m tasting.

I’m sorry in advance if my tasting logs are a bit incoherent. I’ve been working extra hours this week and on some strong cold meds, so most of these teas may have to be reviewed again in the near future!

Meghann it’s probably not the cold meds or the extra hours at work I found this tea hard to put into words myself. It’s not something I would buy again and it’s not something that I ever craved after my initial cup but I may try it sweetened and iced this summer in order to clear my pantry of it. Hope you feel better!

Bio

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
