Holiday Tea-son! I am craving the hibi cider tonight, so I started pawing through my holiday teas again hoping I had some more, and… hey, a discontinued Bird & Blend tea from their Bluebird Tea days! This is another one I got from that same cupboard sale of tea-sipper’s nearly a year ago, so thanks tea-sipper!
This is a fairly tasty hibi cider, though a little more subtle in the spice than some others I have tried. The cinnamon note feels like more of a background note, and the fruitiness is quite thick, full, and tart. I get a lot of hibiscus, currant, and berry notes, and it comes off warm and juicy, reminding me almost like the juiciness of mixed berry cobbler. I could do with more spice though to really make it feel more like a cider rather than just a warm fruit punch! It isn’t nearly as nice as T2’s Mulled Wine Magic, but it is hitting that particular craving I was having tonight.
Flavors: Berries, Black Currant, Cinnamon, Fruity, Hibiscus, Tart, Thick
