I take one tea bag from my Celestial Sampler pack for this tea, and I put it in my cup and adding fresh water, I put this in the microwave for several minutes. Once it is done, I take it out of the microwave and leave it to settle; all the while noticing the rich aroma that is filling the air and my tantalizing my nostrils. It is a fruity mixture (hibiscus seems to be the top note; and there is that roastedness in the cup with scents of lemongrass, and lemon peels.) The tea’s aroma is fruity and citrusy; with a brightly red in coloring.
I sip and sip of the tea slowly because it is very hot and once I am used to the heat and not burning of my tongue, I can begin to enjoy this delightful cup of herbal tea. It is sweet and rich with hibiscus and lemon zest.
Overall tasting notes: great aroma of fruits, like a citrusy wine spritzer or those wine spirits made of fruits and lemon. This is a lovely tea to be enjoyed hot or iced.
