From Hawaiian Islands Tea Company

A special blend of fragrant Hibiscus flowers, Japanese style green tea, with honey & lemon flavors, creates a refreshing amber colored tropical tea. Our green tea leaves are hand picked, lightly rolled, and steam fired. When blended with the other ingredients this tea has a delightful flavor, and smooth taste unique to our Hibiscus Honey Lemon Green Tea.

I got this as a bonus in a swap from CK longer ago than I care to admit, but I’m never terribly quick at getting to my bagged offerings. (I’m trying! I promise!)

I don’t really care for this though. The hibiscus adds a bitter/sour note that I can’t shake and the honey has a strange plastic/wax flavored aftertaste. It reminds me a bit of the flavor of wax lips. Which is sad, because I like it initially and then it gets blah.

This won’t be a revisit for me, as I just barely managed to get my cup down this time.

I got this as a bonus in a swap with CK quite a while ago. I’m already pretty caffeinated, so I wanted something light this afternoon!

I generally like hibiscus…this tea is somewhat bitter though, and I’m not getting any honey flavor. There is a weird artificial element going on here, too. Meh, not very good, sorry! :)
