When I saw that CS had a new holiday tea out I had to grab it. I love cranberry and vanilla, so into the cart it went. It turns out this isn’t a cranberry vanilla tea, but rather a hibiscus vanilla tea with a good pinch of cinnamon thrown in. Since I’m not a big hibiscus fan I was sad when I realized the fruity cranberry tartness wasn’t gonna happen. I did find that when I drank this while hot all of the flavors blended, and it was actually a pretty tasty cup. As soon as it starts to cool however, the hibiscus flavor overwhelms the cup.

Oh well, I guess you can’t win them all. I’m sure I’ll drink a few more cups of this, but there’s no way I’ll finish the box. If anyone out there would like to try it let me know and I’ll send some your way.

I actually saw this in the grocery store but put it down as soon as I realized hibiscus was in it. :-/
