Many thanks to Pekko Teas for the sample. I have to say I am not a huge fan of hibiscus (and it seems I am not alone here on Steepster) in general. So I had been putting off trying this tea because of the dreaded ‘H’! But I broke down tonight because it’s cold and rainy here and I’m starting to feel under the weather (joy).
The dry leaf smells super fruity. Which I think were the apple pieces. So I fired up the kettle and waited. The moment I put water to the tea the liquid went right to red…which had to be the ‘H’. But I waited about 5 minutes as there was no time given on the packaging to prepare this with. The smell and taste are both VERY tart. I like tart, but not when I’m trying to relax and calm down for the evening. I think this one would be better suited to being served cold and over ice with a little bit of sweetener.
