1718 Tasting Notes
The more I drink this, the more I’m annoyed by the the tart hibiscus because, dry, it smells so lovely smooth and coconutty. So last night I tried to squelch it with a little Rooibos Orange Cream from Franklin Tea. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t “it.” Just enough left to try one more blending experiment. Anybody know a foolproof antidote for hibiscus?

…and now I am regretting the fact that I have no more to enjoy.
Full review’s now up: http://www.itsallabouttheleaf.com/1712/tea-review-tea-forte-forte-breakfast/ Having had this in a small quantity, I’ve decided now I’d like it by the pound :)
Had just a sample, so I can’t vouch for the long-term sedative effects, but it’s still a pleasant lemongrassy herbal.
This tea is phenomenal … steeps up a beautiful light beige and smells so nice you just want to keep your nose in the cup to soak up the honeysuckle fumes (I see that none of the other reviews make this scent comparison, but it was that sweet and floral). Flavor, on the other hand is mild and gently sweet. One teaspoon’s worth did three separate steeps without losing much character.
