Oh my god, I think I love hibiscus. I get the feeling I’m in minority here.

Can’t tell the dry leaf nose because a few teas decided to make friends in the box they were huddling in and despite the careful double bagging that occurred, they kinda smell the same. I have yet to find the offender who lent its smell to all others but I will eventually.

Fortunately, the flavour is all there, and untainted. Beautiful clear red liquor. You know, deep fiery sunset red. Or, as some of you will say, hibiscus red. It is very tangy. If you hate hibiscus, you would be advised to buy only a sample of this. I love it though. It is going to be amazing iced, I just know it.

Four giant ice cubes later

Move over “pink flamingo”, here comes Cherry Goddess! Ok, just kidding, there’s room for all of you on the shelf.

PS. You ready? Say it with me: " Thank you Dexter3657!"

A little bit of this in with the Wild Cherry black that you thought didn’t have enough cherry will make all the difference in the world. If you ice a little of this – Malibu goes really well….just saying.

Malibu and tea? You just blew my mind, Dex! :D

I hope that’s a good thing. I put Malibu in fruit juice, fruit iced tea just seemed like a natural thing to do…..

It’s a very good thing! I may have to make a stop for some Malibu and try this out with friends this weekend. Tea + alcohol? I’ve never tried it, but I’m game. Thank you!

This is where I tell you I put booze in a lot of beverages. As soon as I had this iced I thought to myself “now if only I had some booze”. Goji Pop? booze. Pink flamingo? Booze. Organic Buttered Rum? Booze. Tropicalia? waste of your booze :)

High Adventure

Hahahaha! I love that comment! I tend towards the greener side of things, but I love mixing up a good drink every now and again.

LOL, Great comments guys, why did no one mention coffee pu’erh with hazelnut Kahlua? OH right, that’s MY favorite.

Bio

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

NOTE: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity. Home improvements, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
