Very creamy coconut flavour mixes nicely with lemon flavour from the lemongrass. Flavours are very well balanced. Mild zing of ginger. Very nice combination. Slightly thin tasting.

Second infusion at 5 minutes. Coconut flavour is subdued. Lemon is most prevalent. Spiciness of the ginger comes out.

drank Pink Passionfruit by DAVIDsTEA

1.5 tablespoons for 375 ml

Hibiscus is not overpowering. Slight melon-y flavour. Reminds me bubblegum candy flavour but is not artificial tasting. Zingy sugary sweetness note coming through.
This tisane seems like one that would be great as a cold brew.

I need to pick some of this up. I’m trying to find herbal teas that my boyfriend’s mom might like!
