After reading Indigobloom’s latest review of this tea I decided to give it another try. She was right, time does mellow out teas. This tea is much more drinkable than it was the first time I had it. Yay!

I’ve had a box of this tea sitting on my shelf since before I joined Steepster. The first time I had it there was an overwhelming tartness which I now recognize as the hibiscus. I couldn’t get past it, and I’m not sure I even finished the cup. Tonight there was definite berry and vanilla. I wouldn’t recognize the berry as blackberry if it wasn’t printed on the box, but it’s berry nonetheless. The hibiscus comes out as the tea cools, but as long as I drink it while it’s hot then it is a perfectly drinkable tea. It doesn’t make me want to do cartwheels, but I can see myself adding this tea to my evening teas list.

I found adding a tiny bit of sugar made it loads better!!

The Lipton pyramid bag line is generally pretty good.

I’ll add some sugar next time. Overall it really was pretty good. I drank two mugs of it, so…:)
