I met up with Heather today to swap samples, and pass off samples to the Vancouver crew since a bunch of West Coasters are meeting up tomorrow (exciting, eh?) and we stopped in at the nearby DAVIDsTEA for an iced tea. Blackberry leaves and citrus, how can this not be good?
For the longest time I stayed away from hibiscus. Most hibiscus blends have been too loud, too tart, too spastic. But after Pink Passionfruit has won me over, more hibiscus-laced herbals, please.
I’m obviously going by memory, but the citrus hit me first, a sparkly orange, followed by a well-behaved hibiscus, followed by crisp blackberry leaves. I’m surprised the lemongrass isn’t coming through, but that’s cool.
I never ever put sweetener in my cold brews/iced teas at home but the agave was kind of refreshing. Don’t know if I’d make it a habit at home, though.
