This is the first year I’m even paying attention to this tea. As soon as I smelled it, I figured I might as well get a bit since it reminds me of Forever Nuts, only spicier.

But it’s quite different once you steep it. Sure you get that buttery nuttiness, but the hibiscus here is so amped up. The liquor is a deep red, and that alone is a warning sign that this is going to be Hibiscus City. And it totally is. The cinnamon is there but it’s fighting to stay noticed. As for the coconut, raisins, and other fruits, they’re virtually invisible. This actually reminds me of a bit of mulled wine in a sense, and I can see this tasting alright with a shot of wine.

Would I repurchase? I’m afraid not.

I contemplated getting 20g of this today to see if it was as good as it smelled. Thanks for confirming my choice!

No problem! That money could go towards another, hopefully fabulous, tea. :D
