This is just about my worst tea nightmare- hibiscus? berries? Oh lordy. But it was a gift, and before I bring it to the university and unload it upon my department I thought I should at least try a cup. Not feeling optimistic when I see the deep wine colored brew.
Ok, bracing myself.

Yep, tastes like warm kool-aid. Like jell-o mix before it cools. All teas of this sort just taste exactly the same to me. I even blame them for the bad impression I had of herbal teas for years (thanks, Celestial Seasonings berry tea).
Not gonna number-rank this, because I saw my distaste for it coming. If it hadn’t been drilled into my head from a young age not to waste things, I’d probably pour this down the drain.
