2/24 Art of Tea samples
Brewed up a big mug of this early last night to share with my husband. Wow was the liquor a deep crimson. There must be more hibiscus than I had pictured in this blend. I’ve never had a black tea blended with hibiscus, so I was very curious to try this blend. Thanks to Jaime I have the opportunity.
I can certainly taste the fruity tart hibiscus when sipping this tea, but it isn’t the foremost flavor. The black tea base shines through, and there is a fruity, almost an apples and peaches fruit flavor, the end of the sip certainly brings out the rose and floral aspects to the tea. Unfortunately, this floral rose flavor is brought out way to strongly as the tea cools. Sipped hot, this tea is a great blend, the cooler it gets the less I want to sip. The flowers overwhelm the tongue.
Try it, but try it hot and drink it fast!
