I love raspberries. I do, however, wish there were more fruit teas without hibiscus. I’m just not a fan of that flavor. So I really enjoy the initial taste of this tea but not the finish. It makes for a decent iced tea, though, and I’ve found myself brewing it pretty frequently for that purpose. (I’d brew it a heck of a lot more often if it wasn’t for the hibiscus, though!)

Is it hibiscus that adds the tartness? Maybe I’ll get some hibiscus at Earth Origins just to try to see what it contributes on its own.

Yep. I like my fruit flavors without the tartness. (Or just the berry’s natural tartness.) I have a sample of plain hibiscus I got for free, if you want it. I’m certainly never going to drink it.

Bio

I’m a thirtysomething college student (psychology major). Love to read and knit.

Tea preferences: I must admit that I’m not big on subtlety. I like my tea strong and for the flavor to whack me upside the head. I enjoy complex teas, but I just don’t have a sensitive enough palate for the subtle. I know, I’m a heathen…
