I have been offered full-time employment!!!! The search is finally over! Praise be!!
This tea walks the border between too tart and tolerably tart for me. It’s a hibiscus base, and hibiscus plus blackberry is kind of asking for trouble. But the vanilla does its job and takes the edge off of the bitterness and gives the cup a mildly sweet and melodious note.
Not my favorite, but not awful. The vanilla is the saving grace (and, frankly, the whole reason why I made the purchase…)
