I was a bit scared to try this tisane, but I finally summoned up the courage to steep a cup. I steeped it for just 4 minutes, and the result is surprisingly good. The hibiscus is not thick or syrupy or even very tart. The cinnamon saves this blend, in my opinion, giving it enough heat to give a nice contrast to the tart tones of the hibiscus and the faint minty notes of the Tulsi (I would have like the Tulsi to be a bit more expressive in this blend), and the bright, sweet flavors of the citrus. It is a pleasant cup – tastier than I expected it to be. It isn’t my favorite tulsi blend, but I don’t hate it, either.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
