This blend has a lot going on. After reading some of the other tasting notes, I brewed with caution, making sure I didn’t oversteep. 170°F for 2 minutes. The result: a pretty pale pink brew, very little color from the hibiscus, and very little texture. A hint of tart, most of which seems to be coming from the naturally tart fruits like lime and pomegranate – the lime is pretty distinct.
This is tasty. I do wish I tasted more of the green tea. I taste the watermelon, and that makes me very happy because it would seem it might be a bit too delicate in the midst of stronger flavors like hibiscus and lime. But I notice that the lime seems to act as an assist to the watermelon, accenting its sweet, juicy notes. While I can taste the green tea, I wish it was a little stronger – this is much more of a tisane-y tasting cup than tasting of tea. Not bad, actually, it’s very delicious.
