I almost drank this last night at about 10pm, which would have been a huge, horrible mistake, because apparently there’s mate and green tea in here and I like sleep. But that makes it great for this morning.
In ways, I like this blend. The lemon is nice and there’s a bit of zip from the ginger. I actually really like the way the hibiscus was implemented here, too. It’s tart and adds to a real lemony feel without overpowering the whole cup or leaving the metallic taste I associate with hibiscus.
The cinnamon is kind of weird though. It adds a strange sort of sweetness and doesn’t really fit to me. It also seems to just be muddling what could have been a really crisp pick me up.
Thanks Shmiracles, I look forward to my mate induced energy spurt :)
