I received a sample of this today (instead of buying some based on the AMAZING smell) as I’ve been having horrible luck with hibiscus based herbal brews.

This one, this is fantastic. I steeped for only 4 minutes and possibly didn’t use enough tea for the amount of water I used, but although it feels a little watery, the flavour is really good. It’s actually quite sweet as-is, with a bit of a sour tang that goes really well with the pink grapefruit flavour. I’m excited to try this cold (both hot and cold brewed) as this has potential to be an excellent summer tea.

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)
