Part of my monthly package from Bluebirds club. It will make a nice drink to aid me while I play Batman Arkham Asylum, I’m playing through Asylum and City again (games one and two) before going for Origins/game three).
This blend has a sweet fruity scent that reminds me of tutti fruity bubble gum sweets I had as a child. So fresh and juicy, so many happy memories have been unleashed, It’s amazing what the power of smell can achieve.
The colour once steeped is dark red (from the hibiscus) but it still has the same sweet fruity scent from it’s raw form.
The flavour is rather sour and strongly hibiscus but the upside is the fresh and sweet fruit behind it. As it cools the hibiscus becomes a little stronger. Admittedly this tea smells nicer than it tastes but it’s an a nice cup of tea non the less.
I will have to try this as an iced tea and see if the hibiscus is as strong. This tea is not something I would buy more of.
