drank Hibiscus Berry Punch by Steepster
225 tasting notes

The dry mix smells like candy and an herbal that I’ve tasted at Teavana a long time ago but I can’t remember its name. There are large currants, apple pieces, dark pink pieces of the hibiscus.
The water turns bubble gum pink as soon as you pour. Then it gets a bit darker pink but not super dark. The liquid is very pretty and smells like cherry hard candy.
I took one sip hot and it is sweet cherry candy then I pour onto ice. Wouldn’t drink this one hot though it’s a fine flavor that way—just not my kind of hot tea.
Quite tasty and love the pink color.
As an iced tea,,, it is orange, light cherry candy, and it does have a fruit punch flavor to it. It’s sort of like really really watered-down Hawaiian Punch.

Left some of this in the fridge for later in the afternoon and as this tea sits,,,the citrus notes really come out and give it a tangier punch. I will keep this in mind if I order some because I will drink it immediately with ice bc I like the Hawaiian Punch flavor with subtle citrus but it was great both ways. (There is actually no citrus in this mix so it must be the sour cherry that is becoming dominant)

I like Ayurveda, Yoga,
walking, stand-up comedy clubs.

Love chefs and foodies. Love veggies!!!!
I avoid artificial and processed foods such as diet sodas because I think those things affect your palate for tasting teas, foods, wine.
I always use filtered Culligan water for tea, no tap or bottled so I don’t find many teas I dislike bc I start with super delicious water.

Also enjoy bonsai, xeriscape gardening, my doggie, & all nature.

I like the Steepster Select Club because it is allowing me to taste teas that I might not get a chance to taste!
I have stopped rating teas with a numerical value here on Steepster because I realized on May 13, 2014 (a tea enlightenment lol) that once you start to learn what teas you like, get practiced and good at gong fu, and which companies are selling quality tea,,,they are all 100’s to me because I purchase and drink what I like and the best I can find.
I respect all the work that goes into the tea that I am drinking and I like thinking about the different terroirs they come from.

Namaste!
