Bleagh! Ugh! YUCK!

I don’t know what I did wrong but this is just nasty. Blackcurrant Tea smells about right – fruity and rich – but it tastes AWFUL. I can’t even describe the yuck, except that I don’t want any more of it.

I can’t believe I’m taking another sip, but I’m trying to figure out why I think it’s so nasty. It just tastes bad. Almost sour and earthy. It honestly makes me think of vomit. Maybe that’s just my body telling me what it wants to do if I don’t stop drinking it.

At any rate, ugh. I don’t like this tea at all!

My guess? -the dreaded hibiscus. It’s used (or rather over-used) as a flavouring agent in a lot of fruit teas made by larger tea-bag companies like Stash and Celestial Seasonings. Basically it’s a cheap way for them to semi-replicate ‘tart’ fruit flavours.
