When I opened the bag the aroma that greeted me was overwhelmingly medicinal. I wish I could say that that quality was not carried over into the flavor of the tea once steeped but alas I cannot. It was a sharp bitter medicinal flavor that I could not get past. There was an underlying floral note to it, but it was almost hidden by the unpleasant medicinal flavor. I think that perhaps this flavor of tea might pair well when blended with other teas & perhaps the floral notes might shine through if the medicinal flavor was tempered by other flavors.
That being said, I plan on giving it another shot later on down the road and seeing if it grows on me. It is my first hibiscus tea, and I do love floral teas, so I’d hate to dismiss it based on one tasting.
