483 Tasting Notes
I have a cold today, so I decided it would be a good day for this. I’ve taken echinacea before in pill form, or in cough drops or herbal blends but I’ve never tried it plain before. It’s actually rather pleasant. It has a mild taste that’s a mix of herbs and hay. It’s not at all bitter. I enjoy the flavor enough that it’s something I wouldn’t mind drinking regularly, so I’ll definitely keep some in my cupboard for when I’m feeling under the weather.
Flavors: Hay, Herbs

This has a rich raspberry-hibiscus flavor with a light accent of rose that adds depth and complexity. It’s a bit more of a candy raspberry flavor than my standard raspberry tea (raspberry zinger by celestial seasonings). I really enjoyed it. It would be a good would to try blending with a chocolate tea and/or some extra rose petals.
Flavors: Hibiscus, Raspberry, Rose, Sweet, Tart, Thick

So, I definitely thought this was a tasty oolong, but I didn’t taste pineapple at all. In fact my experience of this tea seems to be wildly different than the flavors other people have noted. I got a nice roasty mineral flavor which none of the seventy other reviewers have noted. I may buy some and see if it has a different flavor when fresh or if it got some flavor contamination. If not, I’ll still have a pleasant oolong to drink.
