I’m not sure how this managed to be so watery-tasting. Based on Adagio’s brewing advice for other blood orange versions, I used a generous 2t of dry tea, boiling water, and gave it a good 10 min steep time.

I couldn’t discern any flavors besides teeth-punching hibiscus.

It was slightly better when it had cooled to warm-but-not-hot, so I thought I’d try pouring the rest over ice. Turns out it suits me no better cold. (Diluting with melted ice probably didn’t help when it was already weak. Though the hibiscus was still too much—so there is probably no balance that I’ll like.)

I’m not entirely convinced about the green-ness of this tea. It brews up darker and redder than any green I’ve seen lately. It’s hard to be sure through the jasmine, but it almost tastes oolong-y. Hmm.

Skepticism aside, I’m finding it quite enjoyable.

Wonder if I can get more without reordering the ThinkGeek sampler? (That’s expensive, since half are teas I’m not likely to drink much.) I checked Adagio’s site, and this didn’t seem to match visually to any of the three jasmine greens they’re offering now.
