I was actually pretty excited about this tea. My bff, katgolik, bought 50g on our last order because it was a citrussy fruit tea – which she adores; then wound up pretty much hating it. I tried Bear Trap, which makes me die a little with it’s sheer amazingness, so I traded her for PF, thinking I’d love it after my BT experience. Hmph. Not so much. Again, I might have used too much, or steeped too long (2 heaping DT perfect spoons/7m), but the hibiscus overwhelmed… I like some hibiscus, but this seemed all hibiscus. Unlike BT, where I can taste absolutely every flavour in different mouthfuls, I only tasted the one flavour in this tea – hibiscus! I was soooooo excited about the grapefruit – and the shiny pink lemonade color in the first few minutes of the steep – but unfortunately I got nothing but dark red overpowering deep flower hibiscus :-( I will try again as I have 50 g of it – iced, less time, less tea… I so hope I can find a way to love this!
