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.

I hate to give a terrible first tasting note for this tea, but it’s hard to describe the flavor. It doesn’t taste like anything I’ve ever had before. It reminds me a little bit of the smell of clean hay, with a slighty spicy aftertaste. I don’t think it’s destined to become a favorite, but it’s definitely worth trying.

It has kind of this musty clove scent to it. It’s not bad. In fact, I think I like it. There’s also some cinnamon in there… It’s pretty complex and definitely an unusual herbal. Neat.

This is probably my favorite flavored rooibos so far. (To be fair, I’ve only tried three.) The vanilla isn’t overpowering, and it’s creamy and rich tasting. It’s slightly weird drinking something so milky-tasting that doesn’t have the consistency of milk, but I adjusted and it was only a small weirdness anyway. I love this stuff.

Very boring and bland. I made it strong, and I still wasn’t impressed by the flavor. I’m giving up on decaf black teas. I have yet to find one flavorful enough for me.

I drink this mostly for the flavor, which I love. Licorice and ginger and mint — yum. It helps me a bit with nausea, which is nice, but I drink it even when I’m not queasy.

I really, really liked this tea. I used 6 balls and 16 oz. of boiling water. Let steep for 3:30. It was fantastic. I’ve had a lot of black teas in the last few years, and this is one of my favorites. It was robust but smooth. I didn’t get any cocoa taste, but I love the way the balls smell (wow that sounds dirty). Will definitely be buying this again.

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…
