Brewed tea smells very Christmas-y with clove and tartness.
The actual flavour of the tea has too manly elements with no flavour focus. I can detect the tartness of the hibiscus and the cutting sweetness of the licorice. I can possibly detect some apple note and spiciness of the ginger.
The mix of too many ingredients reminds me of “Indian Summer” by DAVIDsTEA- which I also did not enjoy.

Dilute-tasting. Chocolate note close to the end of the sip. Mint flavour a bit too mild. I’ve never been impressed with the chocolate flavouring offered in the DAVIDsTEA- reminds me of dish-soap for some reason.

Flavors: Chocolate, Peppermint

Smooth burnt-like sweetness. I can taste the straw-like rooibos but it is quite well balanced with the other flavours. There is a slight blandness near the end of the sip.

Brewed tea and wet leaf smells strongly of chestnut.
Flavour is nutty but dilute. I will try to use more leaf next time and infuse for a bit longer

Flavors: Chestnut

I definitely suggest more leaf, less time. Like 1 tbsp leaf for 8oz. for 1 min. :)

I find the aroma of the brewed infusion to be slightly offensive- tangy and sour. This does not, however, transfer into the flavour. I find the flavour to be dilute peppermint tasting with a mix of medicinal herb taste in the background.

Flavors: Herbs, Medicinal, Peppermint

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 6 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 13 OZ / 375 ML

Dilute-tasting. The fullness of the flavour really comes out at the end of the sip, especially as the brew cools. The walnut is a very nice complement to the oolong and pairs nicely with the cinnamon. I detect a hint of sticky sweetness. Note of apple. Roasted note from the chicory root. This tea may benefit from a stronger concentration of dry leaf.
