Recent Tasting Notes
There is just something about this tea. The smell reminds me of something from my childhood, but for the life of me I can’t remember what. One sip, and I’m transported back to summer days when I would spend all day riding my bike in my neighborhood with no helmet and no worries.
Okay, for the actual review: extremely fruity, with a very strong tangerine taste. Out of the hibiscus teas I’ve had from Republic of Tea (and that’s all except for the Vanilla one and the plain one), this is by far my favorite. I brew for 10 minutes (I like my teas strong).
Tangerine Hibiscus is a World Market exclusive. I’ll happily drive the hour and a little bit to get another tin. In fact, this is my second tin (and that’s not counting the one that’s at my parents’ house). This is also fantastic iced, and is also really good mixed with Country Time lemonade.
Where has this tea been my whole life? I shall never be without it again.
The plantain flavor is perfect: just like a fully ripe, baked plantain. The coconut adds a tropical note. There’s a slight, sweet grassy note at the end of a sip. I plan on getting the plain Raw Green Bush since I’ve never had raw rooibos to compare this to.
I brew for 10 minutes.
