Somehow, this tea rests in my cupboard and I haven’t touched it yet; just opened and I guess I prepared it once for my brother who wanted caffeine free alternative. He is like my guinea pig for some teas, I don’t really like.
But, this one I haven’t even touched. I haven’t got it yet. And the leaflet is buried somewhere in my tea related bag (full of empty pouches, empty tea bags and so on).
So, “wine” tea? Interesting… let’s try. 5 grams, 400 ml mug… and song with same name:

How weird to listen Christmas song (carol?) in February.
To the tea: Brew itself reminds indeed a wine. Red mulled wine. Dark red, clear. Even aroma reminds it. I guess it was the goal of the mixologists there. Aroma and brew itself is winning; but the taste, for me one of the most important part – is okay only.
I mean, it is not bad at all! It is like mulled wine, but somehow, quite muted. Quite watery, tart… something is missing. I don’t really know what is it; but it is missing there. Maybe more cinnamon? Less hibiscus to be used? Some actuall wine flavours?
Flavors: Hibiscus, Red Wine, Tart
