I am a hibiscus and strong flavor fan, and this fits the bill. I enjoy it for a delicious nighttime tea.

MilitiaJim has decided he is not all that fond of hibiscus.

Bio

I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
