I’m just not there. I want to be there, but this tea is not for me. I dislike the hibiscus in this blend, and the mixing of cinnamon is simply inappropriate. I don’t even know if I like the fruitiness. I’ll have to give this one a try on another day – I have one more cup left in my sample. I’ll let you know if anything changes, but right now, Sleigh Ride, is not me, it’s you.
**Edit: When first trying Sleigh Ride, I was revelling in how similar this tea smells to Forever Nuts. I wasn’t willing to give Sleigh Ride another chance but I needed to get rid of it (tea overload), so I decided to mix the rest with Forever Nuts and throw it on ice for a beautifully fruity iced tea (about 1.5 tsp of SR/2 tsp of FN, for 20 oz. cup). OH GOOD GOD. I tried it hot before I iced it – COMPLETELY AWFUL. It was so bad, I couldn’t even let it sit on my tongue long enough to figure out what flavours made it so awful. I tried it iced, marginally less awful. I put agave in it, still somewhat undrinkable. I had to put lemonade in this tea just to be able to drink it. Anyway, if anyone comes up with the idea of mixing this tea with Forever Nuts, unless you’re REALLY daring, don’t do it!
Sleigh Ride, it’s OVER. THROUGH! KAPUT.
