Ok seriously, this tea weirding me out. The dry tea bag smelled a little funky. I already blocked it out of my memory but it wasn’t pleasant.
I’m bad and have been letting this tisane steep forever. Just left the bag in my mug. It’s been about eight minutes now and I’m finally tackling it. Firstly, the steeped tea smells quite sour, like lemon juice out of a bottle. The taste is awfully tart too, like drinking hot water with a slice of lemon, and an added touch of tart artificial blueberry. I’d imagine a sour blueberry pixie stick to taste like this.
And about the hibiscus in here. Its flavour is masked by the tart lemon-like flavour, however, it’s creating that same dry sensation in the mouth that I get from hibiscus. It contributes to that ultra tart zing.
