I am having this tea as my morning cup of energy since I must go out into the world and try once again to find employment; knowing all the while I will be met with no. I take on tea bag and put this in my cup and fill it with boiling water and leave to steep for five minutes. After the set time I take my tea and find it to be a lovely pink grapefruit color and smells wonderfully of hibiscus and rosehips. When I sip and sip this tea, first it is slightly on the salty side/ acidic like but mellows out eventually to fruity/citrus like flavoring. This tea is not unsweetened but non-astringent with a natural citrus sweetness to be found in plants like Rosehips fruits, and Hibiscus plant.

It is a lovely tea and one to be compared with Rooibos since it seems similarly in coloring. I mean this tea makes me think of Rooibos teas.

I enjoy a lovely cup of tea most days,and I like sharing my tea experiences with the world. I have been doing this for most of two years now.

I am at that thresh hold, unsure of how to proceed and why. My blog page is there for viewing and I am thankful for the experience as I have been allowed. Thank you everyone, sorry to have failed by not writing a tea book. I simply could not do it. I simply could not.

I have no income and I live on my husband income; so would this be un-wise to do knowing where my life is at right now?
It is something to consider and thank you for the invite. Thank you for Steepster.com’s community of tea drinkers, tasters, reviewers, aficionados and all.
