Dry this smells like Plum and Cinnamon and MAYBE a little licorice – but not much to the nose.
I just finished infusing this and when I saw the color I freaked because I assumed it had Hibiscus in it…BUT…it doesn’t! WOOT! Extra Points for that!!!!
This is quite smoother than I thought it would be. Which I am thankful for!
I can taste Plum and maybe the currants, too…they are very wine-like. The cinnamon isn’t an intense cinnamon type taste – I can smell it more than taste it…and the licorice is pretty much the same way…together they knock down the tartiness of the fruit and it works out VERY nice!!! This is very warming and comforting and fruity and fun but not overly tart and I like that. I think this would be good iced, too…but for now – I’m doing HOT Tea! This is a nice treat!
