From StarFevre a while ago! Thanks so much. This was actually on my wishlist long ago from one of my favorite tea shops I was only able to try a couple of teas from (LIKE CINNAMON SWIRL BREAD!! I wish I had stocked up.) I can tell you right now, I love any tea that leaves those little specks of vanilla on the rim of the mug. This is a black tea with cranberries, jasmine, and… hibiscus. At the top of the mug I’m definitely tasting vanilla. But then the hibiscus takes over… I wish it wasn’t there, as usual… Just cranberries and vanilla would have been fine! I’m not sure if this was ever at any point flavored with any other type of berry? No other tasting notes for this tea, so I guess I’ll never know. I like this now, would have loved it even more fresh. Sipdown next time!
