Another GCTTB6 sample! Only two servings left in the baggy, I’m probably going to keep it and drink two pots of it over the next few days.
A warm spiced tisane on a very cold winter evening. It should be a perfect pairing, but I’m actually thinking this would be better iced. I did make sure I only steeped it for 2-3 minutes to curb the hibiscus’ sour, but there is still a bit more acidity than was warranted. I would have gone with more citrus and apple instead of rose hips and hibiscus.
The cinnamon is really good in this though. It doesn’t have any hint of sickly sweetness or artificial flavour. I don’t know if I’ve ever tasted cinnamon done so well; I am very impressed with Pluck.
I also like that they used green apple in this (granny smith variety), the flavour comes through really nicely.
