I finally got the spring collection teas! I’ve been seeing bad reviews popping up all over steepster, but to be honest this just made me all the more excited, since I tend to love the blends that others hate, and vice versa.
I noticed lots of people complaining about the hibiscus in this one, but hibiscus has never bothered me. Scanning the ingredients for the spring teas, the most worrying one for me was the beetroot in Pink Flamingo (I’ve never tried PF before).
All the spring teas smelled so amazing and fruity and spring-y! Even walking into the store I could smell the spring in the air. After the heavier black teas of fall and winter this is so refreshing.
So, on to this tea. The hibiscus is definitely in the foreground and it reminds me of Kanpe. It’s actually very very close… but fruitier than Kanpe and more sweet, I think. The more I drink it the more I like it. But I can see how if you don’t like hibiscus you could really not like this tea. Of course besides the taste, the big problem with hibiscus is that it’s so overwhelming. I wish it blended a bit more smoothly.
I’m trying to find the black and green teas in here, but I can’t really identify them anywhere. I have a rookie palate though.
But I like this tea. And yes… it makes me excited for spring :)

University student and relatively new tea convert. It all started several months ago when my mom bought me a tin of The Glow from David’s. Now I want to try ALL THE TEAS.

If you know of any excellent tea places around downtown Toronto, let me know! I’ve found a few but am always looking for more.
