I bought this as a 2/$5 dealie without reading all the reviews first. :| Maybe that was a bad idea?

I opened it up and it smelled pretty good. The cinnamon smelled good but it was the main thing I could smell.

I accidentally steeped it for the max recommended time: 7 minutes. When I came back to it I could tell that the hibiscus had overpowered it! I know hibiscus has a bad rep here, and to be honest I don’t really mind it (in some teas), but it’s completely overpowered this blend. Bleh. I’m getting an extremely tart mixture of cinnamon and flowers – not exactly the relaxing OMG-the baby-is-finally-sleeping-it’s-almost-time-for-bed beverage I was hoping for. I forced myself through a few sips, but now it’s going down the drain.

I’ll hold off on rating it until I try to brew it again at 4 minutes! If that doesn’t work, maybe I’ll ice it?

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
