Tazo Passion Tea Bags

"Tart rose hips and citrusy lemongrass woo the voluptuous blooms of hibiscus flowers."

Got a box of these; don't care much for the hot tea by itself (without a ton of sweeter), but the flavor, aroma and color of this has me thinking a steep at the end of the boil in a Hefe or Saison may be interesting and refreshing if done with a light touch. The ingredients listed are Hibiscus Flowers, Natural Tropical Flavors, Citric Acid, Licorice Root, Orange Peel, Cinnamon, Rose Hips, Lemongrass and Juice Extract (color).

I dont pick up the cinnamon or licorice. Anyone tried this, or have any thoughts?

I've tried some but not all of those spices, together. Sounds like its worth a try. Or, you can also just make a tea, literally, and add it to keg/bottling bucket.
