Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending this one in our trade! I’m slowly leaving tasting notes for all the different teas I have right now… I feel like I’ll never get caught up since there are always more tea samples coming my way. Good problems!
That picture for this tea is GORGEOUS. Wow, I love how that picture was done. Anyway, the hibiscus in this one ruined the tea for me, as usual. I think hibiscus really loves to steal the spotlight, so you can’t even notice the other flavors. As I was steeping, I stole a sip that was nice and sweet and less hibiscus. But then I kind of forgot about it and oversteeped and it was so tart! I couldn’t find the apple or coconut, but I know the pineapple added a sweetness to tame the hibiscus. The steep color was a rosey pink. This one could have been worse, I guess. I like the idea of the blend, I just wish hibiscus wasn’t in herbal teas as much. I’d prefer less flavors (like if the apple, pineapple and coconut were less flavorful together) rather than have hibiscus overpower everything else. The next time I try this one, I will be sure not to oversteep!
