It’s not just you. I’ve been getting errors for hours. Seems to have cleared up a little. Hope it gets fixed soon. P.S. Love this review. Especially the “yay tea” part. ;)

Sipdown (199/201)!

Yay for an enjoyable sipdown that puts my number of teas lower than 200! I highly doubt that’ll be kept up for long – but it’s a nice feeling right now.

This was really good! I was quite impressed with how it managed to be fruity without being really tart, and how the cinnamon was not overwhelming, and more just enhanced the plum. I definitely wanted more once the cup was empty.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Plums

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

MissB sent this my way and in the bag it smelled so sweet and so tasty. It almost smelled of fruit punch. When I took my first sip, there was something I immediately did not like. I checked out the ingredients and pinpointed it right away – hibiscus. I don’t understand why tea companies insist on throwing hibiscus into almost all of their herbals. The teas always smell sweet and then the hibiscus always adds a tartness that makes me just a little bit sad. Nonetheless, once I realized what was making me unhappy, I was able to try looking past it to try the other flavors. I am liking the plum in this however I think the cinnamon is adding a woody-ness that is also not for me. All in all, I am glad I got to try this, and I think I will get through the cup, but this is just not for me. Sorry MissB but this was a miss however thank you for letting me try it out.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Oh no. Well, now I know to avoid sending you anything with hibiscus in it. Hopefully the next tea is better!

VariaTEA

Most of them have been quite great. It is me, not the tea :P More and more I notice that I am just not a fan of hibiscus in most teas. I do however like Queen of Tarts but I think that is because it is meant to be tart so I am okay with it.

(In our last swap, I may have thrown in something local that contained lot of hibiscus… Just a heads up)

hahaha I think my issue with hibiscus is when the teas are fruity and smell sweet and then the hibiscus sneaks in and deprives me of my sweet snack.

Finally got around to brewing a sample of this tea. Wow…the cinnamon in this is quite strong…phew! The plum is sweet and a bit tart. Not sure I enjoy this one but will finish the cup. It tastes too much like a liquid potpourri and the fall scented candles I’m burning around aren’t helping the cause.

I didn’t steep this for the full 8 minutes as suggested by Upton because it’s been my experience with teas containing hibiscus that they become way too thick and syrupy (not to mention TART) when left to brew that long.

I really like the way this tisane smells. Strong with cinnamon but I can also smell the fruity notes from the plum too.

This is not a terrible tisane – The cinnamon is the strongest element in the blend, but there is a nice enough fruity flavor to it too. The hibiscus is a bit tart, and I think I’d have liked it better if there was less hibiscus in this blend, but it isn’t too sour, just a little bit more tart than I would like. A little agave nectar helps to curb that – but it would be nice not to have to add it for that purpose.

Not the worst tasting tisane I’ve ever tried, but certainly not the best either. I’m glad I tried the sample of this, but it’s not one of which I’ll purchase a full-sized package.

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec

I will say that the more I drink of this the more I’m developing a liking for it – but that is mainly because the cinnamon has really taken center stage – the hibiscus flavor is not so much present anymore, but neither is the plum flavor. It has become all about the cinnamon now. Not bad, but not what I expected from a tea that calls itself cinnamon PLUM fruit tea.

This sounds interesting…

I may have a bias because I generally don’t like tisanes, but this particular tisane is so cloying with its over-the-top flavour. I mixed it with a basic black tea to bring down the syrupiness a notch, which generally helps, but the cinnamon in this tea overpowers everything else.
