Thank you Lindsay!!!!
This one has been on my WISH LIST for a LONG time!

I really wanted to try this because of the PLUM but I am concerned about the lower ratings…trying to keep my mind open…and because of the hibiscus factor…again…trying to keep my mind open!

It smells like Passion Fruit, Plum, Flowers, Spices, and Citrus.
it’s an intense purple-red color

It is quite tart but here’s what else is going on…
I can taste the tarty fruits first and foremost but then I can taste the cinnamon. This seems a little strange but it’s subtle. I can also taste the ginseng and orange which is actually quite nice.

I have mixed feelings about this because there are so many things going on.

I think the Hibiscus IS overdone – like in MOST teas and tisanes that companies choose to use that ingredient BUT

The fruit flavors are brilliantly popping here. The cinnamon and ginseng help switch it up a little but the dreaded hibiscus is still overpowering.

It sort of reminds me of a plum spice I had from Rishi a while back. It’s supposed to be warming but I think tisanes like this might be better iced. Regardless this wasn’t bad…

The more it sits at room temp the more I can taste PLUM…yay! BUT…they – as well as most companies out there – really need to come off of the Hibiscus more than a bit.

Sorry for the Hibiscus rant! LOL

Regardless – this has potential and I am overjoyed I was able to try it – thanks again – Lindsay!!!!

I did get my plum fix for the day :) CHEERS!


Glad you like it! I find it way more enjoyable with a bit of sweetner, which may be a sacrilege. It definitely took away some of the hibiscus / ginsing bite and brought out the plum a bit more.

The small cafe that is only open on weekends at my mall had this tea. I asked to try it iced. They used ONE BAG for 24oz of ice water. It tasted like cinnamon hibiscus water. Inshould have gotten a small hot cup. Now I know. I wonder how old these bags were?


<3 sorry it was lame tea :(

Smells wonderful; tastes…not as much. Unless you really like the tree-branch taste of ginseng. That’s hard to mask with any other flavoring.


Glad you reviewed this! I was wondering about it and nearly put it in my cart.

Top ingredient in this one is hibiscus and I can taste it. Hibiscus, cinnamon, and then plum.

My kitty is scheduled for surgery in another 20 minutes so I’m having a hard time concentrating on the tea.


I’m crossing my fingers for the kitty… and you.


hang in there…I’m sending some positive vibes your way.


Thoughts/Prayers/Vibes for the Kitty-Kat!!!! Keep us posted!


Good luck with the kitty – hope all goes swimmingly!


Here’s hoping the kitty is okay! Keep us updated, definitely!


Ditto the kitty commentary.

This is definitely growing on me now that I’ve started adding agave to it. The tartness of the plum is accented by the sweetner and it makes it nice and juicy. The hibiscus is toned down a lot now too. I’m enjoying a cup right now after assembling several pieces of IKEA furniture. My new place rocks except the fridge doesn’t work. The kettle does, though!

Title for this review: Organic Passion Plum by Harney & Sons

Organic Passion Plum is long on taste with no caffeine this herbal brew delivers delicious taste with the added benefits of American Ginseng.

I purchased this tea at a café as my morning cup. Fragrantly it was wonderful, and very hot. I enjoyed the medley of the plum with the ginseng. Plum was more prevalent; ginseng was in hints of earthiness to the cup.

The aroma was lovely, depicting the plum right away and sweetness in the cup so that sugar was not needed. The color of the tea was like a dark grape or a soft mauve; I am not sure if one would equate the taste or character to wine since the coloring could be like that of wine.

I don’t know, I just know it was a good comforting cup of tea.

A very “pretty” tea…it brews to look like translucent wine. Unfortunately the taste and aroma are a a bit weak, and not all that distinctive. It’s not that it tastes like water—there’s definitely a sharp, fruity tang to it—but I would never guess that it was supposed to taste like plum….


Maybe that’s a good thing though, I wouldn’t want something that tastes like hot prune juice lol.


You have a point there! xD

I actually quite like this tea. I brew the loose tea and use a little more than normal per cup, and also steep it a bit longer;I think this definitely brings out the plum flavor more. My favorite bit of this tea though is the lovely smell and the gorgeous color when it’s brewed. Absolutely beautiful.

This was another sampler I received long ago from Tabby, when she was rehoming some hibiscus teas since I’m that weirdo that likes the stuff. Having a rare hot cup tonight, though I waited until quite late to brew it.

Looks and smells like mulled wine tea, with a stronger emphasis on cinnamon. That’s what I’m getting in flavor, too. A thick and tangy hibiscus base, with a fruity note that I guess is plum? I couldn’t really recognize plum in the last tea I drank either, so maybe it’s just a flavor that I have a hard time tasting. There is a fruitiness there, though. Really only tasting a strong sweet cinnamon as far as the spices.

It’s not as nice as T2’s Mulled Wine Magic, but I rarely have any complaints with hibiscus-based “mulled wine” type teas. Always pleasant and comforting for me.

My first thought about this tea was “…This is going to go straight through my infuser.” It’s ground so fine! Sure, that ensures a lot of flavor, but it’s also messy. Maybe I’ll use a filter next time.

As it steeps, the water turns deep magenta. Oh. Hibiscus. Though luckily, I mostly smell sweet fruit. Like black cherries and plums with a hint of cinnamon. Hmm. Reminds me of something Tazo used to make, only it was blackberry.

I’ll spare you the rest of the review. The tart hibiscus dominates this tea. Those tempting plum and cherry notes are hardly present at all. It’s just bright, sour, loud hibiscus. With cinnamon.

Booooooooooooooo hibiscus strikes again!

I need to start a Hibiscus Tea Rescue Habitat on here. I could give a loving home to all the hated hibi teas, where they would be loved — and subsequently devoured - from my cozy overstuffed cupboard. :)


@Mastress Alita I’ve got a couple blends I wouldn’t mind sending off if you wanna PM me your address!

Hahaha! That almost makes me actually want to find a shoebox I can label “The Happy Home of Hibiscus”. (I did recently buy 45g of raw hibiscus petals from a co-op :-P )
