Picked this up in little Sylva, NC, this weekend. What a cool place. I have never been to Asheville but I could tell that it definitely has an influence on this town. Now I really want to go to Asheville! But I figured that would be too much for just an afternoon trip so I will hold off and beg the boyfriend for a weekend.
I was hoping for a black tea version of this but they were out, so I was told this was similar. Of course it smelled like it, but sadly it doesn’t taste like blood orange or pear. It tastes like hibiscus and just hibiscus.
The color is just like the hibiscus tea I used to have, just hot pink. I was hoping for something similar to Tarocco Ruby Orange so that I could get a replacement once a year for it but instead I might be adding some of that to the rest of my ounce in order to get something other than hibiscus in here.
That’s all it is. Hibiscus. Thankfully I’ve gotten back into my phase of being able to enjoy it somewhat so there’s that. But it’s still sad because this wasn’t supposed to just taste like plain old hibiscus!
