Dry leaf aroma: Fruit and hibiscus with the faintest hint of cream.

Preparation: Brewed western style in a ceramic infuser mug.
First/only steeping: 5 minutes at 210 degrees. This tisane has a strong fruit and hibiscus aroma and brews to a pinkish red liquor. The predominate flavor is tart fruit, with a very subtle note of cream at the end of the sip. While I cannot isolate the individual fruits, the infusion is neither too generic nor overly tart. However, the cream note throws me off and I am wondering if the Cream of Earl Grey sample packaged in the same mailing envelope contaminated this flavor profile.
I received this tea as a free sample, and I want to thank Good Life Tea for the opportunity to taste this.
