Thank you Lindsay!!!!
This one has been on my WISH LIST for a LONG time!

I really wanted to try this because of the PLUM but I am concerned about the lower ratings…trying to keep my mind open…and because of the hibiscus factor…again…trying to keep my mind open!

It smells like Passion Fruit, Plum, Flowers, Spices, and Citrus.
it’s an intense purple-red color

It is quite tart but here’s what else is going on…
I can taste the tarty fruits first and foremost but then I can taste the cinnamon. This seems a little strange but it’s subtle. I can also taste the ginseng and orange which is actually quite nice.

I have mixed feelings about this because there are so many things going on.

I think the Hibiscus IS overdone – like in MOST teas and tisanes that companies choose to use that ingredient BUT

The fruit flavors are brilliantly popping here. The cinnamon and ginseng help switch it up a little but the dreaded hibiscus is still overpowering.

It sort of reminds me of a plum spice I had from Rishi a while back. It’s supposed to be warming but I think tisanes like this might be better iced. Regardless this wasn’t bad…

The more it sits at room temp the more I can taste PLUM…yay! BUT…they – as well as most companies out there – really need to come off of the Hibiscus more than a bit.

Sorry for the Hibiscus rant! LOL

Regardless – this has potential and I am overjoyed I was able to try it – thanks again – Lindsay!!!!

I did get my plum fix for the day :) CHEERS!

Glad you like it! I find it way more enjoyable with a bit of sweetner, which may be a sacrilege. It definitely took away some of the hibiscus / ginsing bite and brought out the plum a bit more.
