This is so interesting! This may just be one of the most interesting and curious tasting ones I have had so far! And by curious I mean that in the nicest way! Certainly NOT a bad way!
Just when I thought this would be too hibiscusy – I was WAY wrong!
I mean, YES, it has Hibiscus IN it but the other ingredients off-set it very well! And there are other things that threw me for a loop and I LOVE THAT about this offering!
I can taste the berries and they are plump and juicy but delish! There is crystallized ginger in here too! So the peppery ginger is offset by the sugar which is genius!!!! I really like that! I even sneaked a piece to nibble on while infusing! I think the ginger and the sugar interrupted the stereotypical hibiscus flavor and for that I am very thankful! As for the Pear and Pom – they work very well together to create it’s own flavor yet I can pick out both individually if I think about it. There are apple pieces that are juicy-sour but in a good way, too! Nice touch! The berries – elderberry and currants – are surprising and almost like a fruit leather type taste. There is so much going on here – so many things to contradict eachother – that everything works awesomely together! I really REALLY like this flavor! Both hot and cold! It’s one of those tea/tisane wonders of the world! A pure delight!
