I like this a lot. It’s really quite good. The fermented grape flavor comes through but tastes a bit more like currants than strong wine, and there is a sweet/tart flavor from the blueberries and raspberries, and a delicious, smooth sweetness from the mango. And might I add … next to NOTHING from the hibiscus. I steeped this for 10 full minutes, and I do not feel the syrupy texture from the hibiscus. I barely taste the tartness from the hibiscus, and what little there is, it is there to accentuate the flavor of the berry and currant, rather than detract from the flavors.

I don’t taste much rooibos either… only hints of rustic woody notes and nutty tones, none of that funky, sour wood or weird sweetness or aftertaste.

I’m very pleased with how this one turned out. Very nice.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
