There is no one real strong flavor in this tea for me, they all seem to come together in a harmonious, seamless flavor that tastes and even smells a bit like Christmas.
The floral additions to this blend are quite nice. I like how they compliment the Cabernet flavor. They impart their distinctive flavor in the blend and enhance the overall flavor of the cup.
It’s light on aroma but not on taste! The spices are JUST RIGHT for me! The cinnamon is a little bit stronger than the ginger. The cardamom and cloves are in there too – as well as the black pepper. I appreciate these specific ingredients not being too strong. I can taste floral notes as well! The rose petals are a nice touch. The vanilla is noticeable in the middle of the sip and more-so as it cools. I applaud the vanilla in this case – it helps with the other spicy spices and really added to the mix of flavors!
Overall, this is a very enjoyable cup. It’s naturally caffeine free, so it would be a good one to serve around the hearth when your family and friends are celebrating the holidays with you. I found it to be tasty as a hot beverage – I imagine it would be even better with a splash of rum in there!
