aroma:

This highly inviting tea has a powerful nose of cinnamon and candied fruit with strong black licorice. Cozy and full of warming winter spice, the aroma alone makes me want to go sledding.

flavour:

Dominated by licorice flavours, Sugar Plum Forest has a lovely backdrop of candied plums with a light spice character and hints of mulled apples. The flavour lives up to the aroma quite well, much better than many herbal teas. I am not usually a huge fan of licorice but the combination of flavours in this tea make good use of it and it is a great blend for cold days.
