I was talking to someone on steepster about this tea (can’t remember who). This tea has been around for a while but has never interested me before, but whoever I was talking to said it’s not too tart so I decided to give it a try :).
I bought 25 grams of this tea, and used it in it’s entirety, along with what was left of Nettle Greek Mountain from Steeped Tea in 2L of near boiling water (that’s the second FULL tin of weaker herbal teas I’ve used up by mixing it in with fruit teas :) ). I steeped it for 6min, pulled the filter out, poured myself a half glass and popped that in the freezer to cool down quickly. It was cold enough for my liking within 45min – the rest of the pitcher is still fairly hot in the fridge :).
Overall the tea is only slightly tart with a nice fruity taste (mango with what I assume to be guava?). Not bad, especially for a hibiscus tea. I may purchase again, but with the exception of an order I made today to DAVID’s (which was mostly for another iced tea pitcher- i only bought 150 grams total of ONLY fruit teas!) I’ve decided to take a break from buying for DAVID’s teas to try different kinds (I’m thinking of trying different bagged fruit teas to cut my spending down (I’ve bought hundreds of dollars in loose leaf teas over the last 2 months…yikes)).
