I guess this could’ve used some rock sugar…
There are fruits all around in this tea, it even smells delicious, but there’s an unfortunate hint of the overpowering hibiscus, and the even lesser safflower and cornflower.
Overpowering flower blossoms can be a problem, as they take away a lot of the fresh and bright flavors that would otherwise be prominent in a blend like this.
In this case, the hibiscus adds a disgusting amount of tartness and bitterness to a potentially great fruit cocktail.
I would love to drift away to paradise, but the jarring hibiscus unfortunately takes you back to the tart bitter reality.
