I got this tea as a free-bee with one of my SpecialTeas orders, I seem to recall. I’m generally not big on berry-flavoured teas as they tend to have hibiscus in them, and I have to say I haven’t been too impressed with other greens that I’ve tried from this company. But I try to keep an open mind whenever I try a new tea.
It smells berry-ish or maybe a bit like fruit punch – I didn’t notice the tell-tale red colour and a check of the ingredients list on the website confirmed that there in fact isn’t any hibiscus in this blend (whoot!)
The tea is a little bit bland, although I can taste the flavours a bit better after its had time to cool off slightly. The mix of berry flavours is apparent and has a touch of sweetness and you know what? it manages perfectly fine without a bunch of hibiscus in it. So there all you hibiscus-obsessed tea companies! ;)
The rhubarb flavour isn’t so aparent, but then it’s something that has the potential to rival hibiscus in terms of sourness; so I’d rather they went with too little rather than too much!
