This tisane is composed of large, colorful pieces of dried fruits. The fragrance is tart and citrusy and there’s a subtle dusty or aged quality.
This steeped to a deep red so it might contain some hibiscus. There were visible pieces of cranberry but this was far deeper than what could be imparted by just that fruit.
The flavor was very tart but also had a clean citrus base. It wasn’t very complicated being mainly bitter-orange and apple.
I took half of a cooled cup and poured it over ice. I find that a colder temperature makes the fruit stand out more. The chilling gave this more character so I think I prefer this blend iced.
