This is my foremost example of tea with hibiscus does not NEED to actually stink of it. Hibiscus can be done subtly. Seriously. Though this besides being my foremost example of that, it is also my only example but that is not the point of this review.

If I remember correctly, this tea has rooibos, hibiscus, rosehips, some cinnamon, I think some almond and some other things. All those tastes merge together without clashing and making something new (where even paranoid hibiscus haters can ignore it!). It is a lovely blend, keyword being blend, making something new and just right and totally different out of individual things.

My original tasting note said this was a definite rebuy. It is, though maybe it is not a definite immediate rebuy, this is very good, but a couple or more of other Yumchaa rooibos blends are even better (IMO. YMMV and all that,)

Bio

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky. I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am trying to make sure …

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres,Thé-o-Dor and Yumchaa.
