From Coffees of Hawaii

Hibiscus petals and raspberry fruit imbue this tisane with even deeper hues of red. The combination of flower and fruit is bright on the tongue with a sweet aftertaste in the mouth and a warm glow in the body. Delicious and crisp, this is a great tisane for entertaining family and guests. Also makes a fabulous iced tea – garnish with fresh mint!

aisling of tea sent me this pouch of tea since I’m actually a fan of hibiscus, at least when deployed well. I have to admit I was a little skeptical because the primary ingredient in this tea is actually coffee cherries… weird! I don’t really like coffee, but I don’t mind coffee flavoring in some circumstances.

I bought a new bodum iced tea pitcher at TJ Maxx the other day (I know, nothing like waiting until the end of the summer, but it is a nice pitcher), so I cold brewed this one for a day or so. The result is, well, weird like I thought it might be. I mean, it tastes a bit like raspberry, a bit like tart hibiscus, and then also a bit like coffee. Not like a cup of coffee, but more like coffee flavoring… but it’s hard to figure out because coffee is almost never paired with fruit. I think it’s growing on me as I drink this cup. I’m also interested in seeing how this one will taste with some sweetening, since I’m drinking it plain now. But yeah… coffee and fruit is a bit… weird.

Yeah, this tea was just too weird for me, but I’m glad it has found a good home!

I’m not going to rate this one just yet because I need to make it…better. I followed the company’s instructions of 1 tablespoon for 16 ounces of water (technically, I should have used 2 T, but seriously.) Way, way too strong for me. I added sugar, but you can’t taste it. It’s more hibiscus than raspberry, but it’s not terrible. It could just be because it’s crazy strong too. Definitely going to make another cup with way less tea.

I was weirded out by this tea. Is it tea? Is it coffee? If tea is simply defined by soaking plant products in hot water, isn’t coffee tea? Could I make tea out of chocolate covered espresso beans? Why is my cat doing that?

I digress. Anyway, it smelled nothing like what it tastes like, and the color is a dark red…the color is so rich that at once point I caught myself checking my tongue in the mirror to see if it had been dyed (it hadn’t). I don’t get “COFFEE” flavor from this, but I do get a kind of “oh, hey, y’know my friend coffee?” It’s there, but oh so barely, like a guest at a party thrown by hibiscus and raspberry.

I don’t know about this tea. I just don’t know.

EDIT: A few more sips and I was sick to my stomach. Down the drain with ye!
