Next one up from my “Christmas Cookies” sampler! I actually like thumbprint cookies a lot, though I tend to go for apricot jam (my favorite) instead of the usual raspberry. This tea has a lot of dried apple pieces in it, as well as the generic tea leaves, hibiscus, and rose hips. Dry scent is, again, surprisingly weak. I can smell a bit of hibiscus and hazelnut, which makes for an odd combination.
The steeped cup also smells of hibiscus with a bit of hazelnut added in. Not excited… :P Nope nope nope. Actually, I think this would come pretty close to the idea of a thumbprint cookie, but the hibiscus just makes the “jam” part of it way too tart. If there wasn’t hibiscus, I think this would actually be fairly tasty! :P Stupid hibby!
