I feel bad for how I’m rating this tea. And ill tell you why…its because the smell of this tea is absolutely out of this world. It smells like cinnamon oatmeal cookies with brown sugar. But once steeped, that damn hibiscus ruins it completely. The steeped liquid still smells incredible, like snickerdoodles with just this yummy tiny hint of sweet plums; and the aftertaste is like cinnamon brown sugar cookies too! But the hibiscus overpowers EVERYTHING unfortunately. So the main flavor I’m getting is tart. And I hate it so much. Dear Fava, please make this without hibiscus next time because my rating would have been 100% without question. I can tell exactly what this would taste like without the hibiscus and it would be phenomenal! Why do these companies ruin these blends with hibiscus? Such a waste.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cookie, Plums, Sweet, Tart

I have this tea (same blend, from a different company) and actually really like it, though I do like hibiscus… and I recall in my review saying that the hibiscus flavor was quite strong and not recommending it to anyone that doesn’t like hibiscus teas. I recently tried a tea that reminded me of this one, except it had no hibiscus or plum flavor, which was Cran Marnier from Art of Tea. It was supposed to have a cranberry flavor but it didn’t taste berry-like at all to me, all I tasted was a very strong cinnamon and clove spice… it wasn’t “hot” though, just warming and cider-like. The base is rooibos and honeybush. Maybe it would be closer to getting that cinnamon cookie flavor you are looking for?
