I love unintentional surprises!
I forgot I bought this tea last fall during a camping trip to the Smokies. Detoured for a shopping trip in Gatlinburg, TN. I just found it under a bunch of bags of dried beans.
The dry leaf has a nice cinnamon and fruity aroma.
The tea liquor is a deep dark magenta, like pickled beet juice.
The aroma is complex and spicy, mmmmmmmm really lovely.
I was expecting a lot of sour due to the hue and hibiscus but no, it’s rather sweet with a nice spicy background from the cinnamon. I do taste plum and it really goes well with cinnamon. I think that this tea was a great find and I am happy to have a nice rich herbal tea for an evening cup.
I see that several tea companies offer a cinnamon plum blend that I might try as well.
I really like this flavor!
