Got some of this from krystaleyn. Thanks for the sample! just enough of this to make s large cup cold brewed. I can taste the tarty hibiscus and the berry. I also taste the rooibos, which doesn’t bother me too much but it seems s bit out of place. And the after taste here seems a bit artificial.

Okay. Added a touch of sugar. Definitely helps the berry pop and makes it quite juicy. Not bad but not my favorite.

I don’t think anyone thinks you’re snubbing them just because you don’t comment on the rooibos! I certainly don’t comment all that often and I don’t think people find me offensive…right? And maybe you want to consider putting your disclaimer elsewhere as well. haha I think this one will get lost pretty soon. :)

I am glad the touch of sugar did help it pop. I’ve noticed the same. I also enjoyed this cold brewed. Making it that way sort of tames the tartness. Either way, I am glad it still worked out in the long run. :)

Removed it…so you can too.

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
