Recent Tasting Notes

Thanks so much to carol who for a sample of this tea! The dry leaf is really pretty, with lots of blue cornflowers and rose petals and raspberry chunks. This tea is a pale peach color when it’s steeped. It smells mostly of rose and hibiscus, with a hint of raspberry. I used a pretty generous amount of leaf, and I steeped it for a little under eight minutes. Then I let it cool, since I usually find herbals to taste better when they’re not too hot.

I have to admit, I don’t usually enjoy hibiscus in herbal teas, so I was pleasantly surprised by how this tasted. I mostly taste the raspberry and the rose, alone with some light tartness from the hibiscus, which actually complements the other flavors. This is how hibiscus should taste in an herbal tea—not so tart that it’s hard to drink, but just strong enough that it adds to blend. Overall, the flavor of this tea is very light, but I’m enjoying it. I wouldn’t have thought to try it on my own, so I’m glad I got the chance to sample it!

This is a nice herbal tea, with a light flavor that captures the essence of a summer garden. It’d be especially great for fans of rose and raspberry, as long as you don’t mind some hibiscus in there!

First review from the new town. This one smells so nice, I have always liked the scent of vanilla. The flavour is smooth and slightly sweet. I guess this is my Halloween treat.
