Knowing that this tea contains hibiscus and rosehip, I didn’t expect much from it… until I smelt its lovely aroma as it brewed. It took me a while to recall that it was the aroma of Lupicia’s Sakurambo (it turns out that one of the ingredients, acerolas, are known as West Indian cherries. No wonder!)… and I love Sakurambo!! Sadly, a tea with hibiscus is after all, a tea with hibiscus. I was greatly disappointed as soon as I took a sip. The liquor was decidedly fruity, but it was BITTER. Perhaps it was the result when the tartness of hibiscus/rosehip was combined with the sweetness of cherries. :( I didn’t enjoy it…

Bio

A devilish girl who lives up to the post-80s youth stereotype – hedonistic, frivolous and rebellious – except I love traditional afternoon tea rather than a quick caffeine fix at Starbucks.

I make a living off others’ criminal activities. It’s a busy job and I really wish I could retire, so I can become a full-time afternoon tea connoisseur instead. :j

I love any tea that has nice scent, great flavour and lovely packaging. My current top favourite brands are Mariage Freres, Kusmi Tea, Lupicia, T2, and THE O DOR. ;)
