I’m not sure how I feel about this tea. I cold brewed it last night and drank it today. It tasted ok, but not great. Mostly generically fruity and hibiscusy, but not in a too-tart way. There was also some kind of odd spiciness to this, which doesn’t really make sense given the ingredients. I think some of the sugared fruits offset the tartness. I also don’t really think hibiscus is that good cold brewed. I may try to hot brew the rest of this one and then chill it to see how it turns out that way. Overall it was just kind of meh.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
