Water temperature: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 2 minutes

This was my morning cup of tea of choice since I was in a rush to be out of home today and leave in-laws alone/ to have peace and I did not have to be rude or annoying as I have been. I am sorry for me.

I put one tea bag in my cup, adding the boiled water to my cup and left to steep for a couple of minutes. Tea’s color is purple with a fruity/licorice like aroma.

I drink this tea every now and again. As I sip the tea it is warm and fruity in taste, with the hibiscus giving the tea a little citrusy touch to it as well. The tea has slight dryness when swallowing and yet it is sweetly; the dryness is not like tartness of an apple which would make this tea like white wine but as this is Concord grape like wine, it is dry with a somewhat similarity like port wine.

This tea does not taste like port wine; I am just trying to explain the dryness at back of throat when swallowed. Overall, tea’s color is purple with a fruity aroma and the lasting taste is that of grapes (blackcurrants) and hibiscus.

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.
