4843 tasting notes


I have to admit that when I read the ingredient list for this tisane, I was a little dismayed. Hibiscus as well as stevia? Ugh. I would rather companies not put stevia in their blends, because I like to decide how much (if any) sweetener I add to a cup. I don’t like this decision made for me. And well, it’s no secret that hibiscus just isn’t my favorite tea/tisane ingredient.

That said, this tisane was still pretty darned good. I do think it would have been better without the stevia, but as it is, I found myself enjoying the apple-y notes and the spices, and the stevia does nicely accentuate the spice notes.

This tisane tastes a bit like apple cider that’s been mulled with masala chai spices.

Fortunately, the hibiscus is on the light side, and I would still recommend only steeping for 6 minutes to keep the hibiscus from becoming too syrupy.

A well-defined apple note with lots of well-balanced spices: ginger, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom. Essentially, this is like an apple chai! Nice!

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
