Meh, this is not one of my favourites. I’m really diverging from the artificially sweet, fruity teas, and this is one of them. It’s got flavouring as an ingredient, and it tastes too sweet and odd to me. It has a ton of hibiscus , so it’s sweet at first, then super tart. Also, it smells great dried..not so great brewed. A common problem with Teavana teas for me.
Looks: Fabulous when dry. After you brew it’s a huge mash of nasty looking mushed up fruit bits.
Smell & flavour: As I said, I like the smell when it’s dry. After brewing it’s kind of odd, too much hibiscus I guess. The flavour is like ultra tart watered down red fruit juice. Take the non-descript red juice in the aisles, water it down a bunch and add hibiscus tartness. Voila, sweet fruit tea!
Brewing notes: It’s just fruit, so it’s pretty forgiving. The longer you steep the more hibiscus comes out though, so a quick steep is preferable.
