I’m beginning to think that every hibiscus tea tastes the same. I did get some citrus notes here but I got mostly hibiscus. Maybe a five minute brew was too long? I’m also in a bit of a cranky slump today so that may have something to do with it. Not rating this one because it may be my crankiness. If you like citrus and hibiscus, definitely go for this one as it is lovely that way. I just feel like I’ve had the same flavour before in other teas and therefore this one didn’t whelm, either over or under.

aha! I knew the hibiscus would come back to attack you in another tea moment :P
Maybe you had a few extra ’biscus leaves? maybe one from this batch slipped into mine to!!

HEEE! I suspect there is an evil hibiscus tea monster out there determined that if we just drink it enough we will love it, and therefore him, and then he can take over the world, one teacup at a time.

LOL if I catch him… can I keep him??

If it keeps the hibiscus away, most definitely! :D

Bio

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
