Quite floral. The cinnamon and licorice are hardly present, but the plum comes through nicely.

Tea will only be as good as the water used to prepare it. Recognizing the fundamental importance of clean water, not only for tea, but for our health and the well-being of our environment, we teamed up with Clean Water Fund. With every sale of Organic Cinnamon Plum, we donated 25% of the profits to Clean Water Fund’s efforts to protect and restore America’s waters. With the help of all those who purchased, gifted and drank our delicious limited seasonal blend, we were able to donate over $4,200 to Clean Water Fund! With all the great praise Organic Cinnamon Plum received, we just may bring it back again next year.

It has been a long 7 day work week, and I as looking in my tea pantry for something with licorice root to combat my fatigue. This tea also has the caffeine free perk – the last thing I need is a crash! My first impression of the aroma reminded me of mulling spices – very cinnamon forward and almost verging on the gates of alcoholic. Do you remember those little cinnamon breath drops that come in the teardrop shaped plastic bottles? That’s kind of the aroma I gathered at first.
After I brewed it, the complexity of the plum and hibiscus came forward. The cup is stunning, a burgundy-purple color. The flavor was misleadingly tart, but the brightness of the plum is needed to counterbalance the spicy, tingly cinnamon. The aroma when brewed reminded me of Christmas. Warm, comforting and complex.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Hibiscus, Plums
A strong cinnamon-y scent. I also smell notes of licorice and hints of fruit. The fruit note is rather indistinct, it doesn’t necessarily smell of “plum” or “currants.” It just smells like fruit.
I’m glad it doesn’t taste too hibiscus-y. It tastes mostly of cinnamon: a sweet, warm cinnamon note. This isn’t overly tart. There is a balance between sweet and tart with warm notes and I enjoy that balance of flavors.
