Kind of a surreal patterned representation of the taste of a tea I got in a Christmas package this year - a cinnamon-hibiscus blend, which I drank with honey. Leaves for the tea base, floral pink, honey-gold sweet, hot-spicy-tingly star-studded red of cinnamon. I thought it might be fun to try to show flavor, instead of just showing somebody drinking tea...

FirielThanks, Jadis. :)
My mom really liked the hibiscus as well - she told me after the picture was already finished that she'd actually had a hibiscus plant at one of her childhood homes.
