This was recommended to me because of my love of Forever Nuts. On first glance, they have much in common: trail mix appearance, apple/cinnamon smell and a bright pink (reddish in this case) hue.
But that’s where the similarities end as they couldn’t taste more different. This one is tart, almost lip puckeringly so, and definitely unexpected. Much like Stormy Night, it’s not always my go-to choice and it can definitely be an acquired taste but the cranberry/apple tartness is refreshing!

I’m ashamed to admit that I never re-steeped my tea before (never knew you could!) but I have found that the second go around of this flavour is noticeably weaker in the tart department, but still retains a mild apple/cranberry flavour.

EDIT: whoops! Shows how oblivious I am, there isn’t any cranberry in this, so disregard any references to that. Apparently I wouldn’t know hibiscus if it slapped me in the face.

A relatively new convert to tea; it never seems to taste better than in a giant tardis mug!

Mostly a fan of fruity herbals, black and rooibos and quite addicted to Forever Nuts by David’s Tea.
