I must admit that this one scared me after I brewed it. It brewed to the deep, ruby color of heavily hibiscus-laden tisanes. I fretted that this would be a STRONG hibiscus tasting tisane.
Fortunately, it just LOOKS like hibiscus – but doesn’t taste like it. Well… yes I can taste the hibiscus, but, it isn’t as strong as the appearance might suggest.
It has a sweet tropical flavor. I can taste berry, tangerine, passion fruit and mango notes. I can taste a hint of the spices as well as just a whisper of the licorice. It’s really an intriguing, tasty blend. YUM!
