Just made a mug of this tea, and really like it. It made a beautiful rosy brew, and smelled heavenly.
I had it with less than 1/4 tsp sugar and a bit of milk.
Yes, I noticed the hibiscus, which I often find too tart, but in this tea it was good.

After brewing, I fished the bits of strawberry and apple out of the straining basket, and ate them. (Good heavens, how undignified. ;)
Thanks, Starfevre, for introducing me to this one!

P.S.: Starfevre, I just discovered your note about milk ruining this tea!
Since I liked it with milk, next time I’ll try it without – maybe it will be even better.

Ruin…well it’s really that the tea has hibiscus in it, which tends to curdle milk, makes it differentiate into particulates, if you noticed that happening in your tea. I did when I made it, and with most ‘fruity’ herbal teas. You may or may not like it more without. If you do, great! If you don’t, obviously add some milk.

Hmmm…. that’s interesting. You’re right, I’d expect the milk to curdle (I put the milk in without thinking much about it, before I looked up the composition of the tea). But it didn’t curdle. Hmmm.

Still, next time I’ll try it without milk,
