Day 4 of the advent calendar. This tea steeps a nice, deep, wine red colour. I added some agave nectar thinking that it would help to balance out the tartness of the hibiscus. It did help a little but it’s still pretty tart. I feel like this one might actually be better iced. It’s not bad though. Very straightforward tangy citrus fruit tea with added tartness from the hibiscus and a touch of pepper flavour from the lemongrass. I like the citrus flavours here. I find the grapefruit, lemon zest and orange zest mingle well together. Typically, the hibiscus is tart but it’s okay here with the sour, tangy fruits. The lemongrass tastes too peppery to me and I’m not crazy about it. It’s not completely offensive, just doesn’t seem to be mixing with the other flavours very well. I usually like lemongrass in tea but I think this would have been better with the lemongrass left completely out of it. If it was just the citrus fruits and hibiscus I would have rated it higher.
