Very similar to Forever Nuts, right down to the pink colouring. The taste is slightly different – maybe the rice or the pineapple? – but it’s just as delicious.

Falling snow, popping chestnuts, cold hands and noses…yep, winter has arrived. But don’t worry, we have the perfect tea to warm you up all December long. Cinnamon, apples, raisins, almonds, and hibiscus combine for a tea that is sweet, tart, and earthy. And beet pieces make it as nice and rosy as a caroler’s cheeks. So hop in your sleigh, snuggle up, and pass a thermos around. It’s lovely weather for a Sleigh Ride together.

When I first starting drinking tea, I enjoyed this one. I thought it reminded me of apple cinnamon tea. However, as I’ve been getting used to a wider variety of teas, I started to dislike this tea more and more. I find it too tart because of the hibiscus, and quite frankly all I can taste is a tart-sour liquid explosion. I rememember that when I started drinking this tea a few months ago I used to be able to taste the cinnamon (perhaps I’ve accidentally used all the cinnamon pieces previously?) but not anymore- just hibiscus, which I am not fond of.
I cannot recall if I steeped this for the correct amount of time, but the first few times I made this tea I found it a bit on the sour side, I had to sweeten with honey to really enjoy it and appreciate the rest of the fruity notes. It wasn’t too long before I could drink it straight and it was no longer a problem.
No matter how short I steep this or how little tea I use, I always end up with this rancidly strong cup of purple. Don’t get me wrong, the colour’s nice but it ends there. I don’t know what it is but I always get it really strong, spicy and gross. I’m not sure if it’s the cinnamon or something else but bleck this is terrible.
EDIT: I think this may be my preference despite the reviews similar to mine, but because of that chance I’m removing the rating and just keeping the review.
It smells like cinnamon – yum! First few tastes were really nice – mild and cinnamon-y. Then the tart (apple or hibiscus?) kicked in – not as nice. I can see why so many people said “no hibiscus please!”. I don’t have a lot of experience with hibiscus, as I tend to avoid fruity blends. Might try it again. Not pleased about the need for artifical flavours – what, the long list of ingredients wasn’t enough?
When I went to the store I smelled this tea and was confused because I had come into the store to replenish my Forever Nuts stash. It’s basically a fancier, winterier version of Forever Nuts. Really yummy, resteeped great, and relaxed me so well the other night that I was falling asleep while drinking it.
