Another bag chosen at random from my lot of one off’s. This pre bagged tea stipulates to use boiling water and leave to steep for 5-8 minutes.

The colour is a lovely blood red colour.
The smell is subtle and slightly spicy yet floral and very strongly hibiscus.

Honestly I am not a hibiscus fan so I am not sure this will be a tea for me but with having only one bag it’s worth a try. Hibiscus tends to smell stale and dusty and tastes too tort, as is the view of a lot of tea drinkers.

Alright imagine a raspberry tea without the raspberry flavour and you have this tea taste and look wise. It tastes tangy like raspberry does in the after taste and ever so slightly sweet with it. It’s also tort and despite the steeping time is not over poweringly strong but is strong enough. The full taste is not unpleasant nor pleasant but very middle of the road. I suppose it’s similar to cranberry as well in taste but just not as tasty.

I don’t think I would buy this tea for my own collection but if I saw this in a cafe I may be tempted to order it as something different.

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 30 sec

Profile

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
