I got this as a free sample in the last Adagio order I placed.
Opening it – wow. That’s sour. It almost reminds me of smelling a bag of Sour Patch Kids or Warheads. I love sour things, but I’m not good at a lot all at once. Still, I’m really intrigued.
1tsp/8oz, 5 minutes, boiling water.
It’s immediately starting to turn a bright red, probably from the hibiscus. Cool. It’s a really pretty tea.
The tea doesn’t smell as strongly sour when brewed as it does steeped, although I still smell it.
It doesn’t taste that sour either. I think I’m going to make another cup but steep for ~10 minutes, and see how that changes it. Leaving off the rating for the moment.
