Well I will start by saying that I am not a big fruit, flower and herbal tea drinker. So this may be my inexperience with these teas showing or my palate hasn’t adapted to appreciate this tea, but, it was really not nice. I hate to use words like vile as that would be me forcing my opinion a bit.

This tea wasn’t for me, smelled quite nice out of the box, a bit like jelly or sweets. But like all the fruit/herbal/flower teas I have had, the smell was great but the flavour didn’t deliver. Weak and a tad bitter it was akin to watered down fruits of the forest squash. I brewed it for 2 and half minutes which is right between the recommended time for it but ended up trying to steep for longer to try and increase the flavours. The flavours did get stronger but so did the bitterness so it was a marred success.

I’m sure the echinacea with its flouted medicinal benefits was probably good for me, but I don’t think its worth drinking this to get it.

Maybe a nice iced tea or made into jelly,sorbet or some other cold tea based offering but fails to impress me as a warm beverage.
