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.
