Double leaf this one, I dare you all! It’s amazing. Like syrupy, sweet juice that’s still light and refreshing from the faint eucalyptus. Amazing! Had this yesterday, however I think I may need some more now.

Cold steeped all day. I used Fjellrev ’s suggestion, and just used a tea bag. That way I could put the lid on my mason jar, and avoid spilling. It worked wonderfully! Thanks!
This is really good. Orange-grapefruit, some tartness from the hibiscus, and a hint of cooling eucalyptus. It is DEFINITELY something I’d consider getting in a future order.
However. It looks almost exactly the same as Tealux’s Orange Lemonade. So since I’m doing a Tealux order within the next couple months, I’ll just get that one instead. I can always grapefruit it up with my grapefruit seed extract, or the food oil I have.
sipdown! thanks missb i LOVE the way this one smells. Brewed up it’s also really quite tasty! Such that i may need to think about picking up a small quantity of this in future. :) It’s tangy without being pucker face sour and it smells wonderful! I have a feeling this wouldn’t be too bad as a cold brew either :)
Haha oops, another tea I am reviewing as I sip it down lol :P I ordered this sample in my last HI order as I need to find more herbals, my cupboard is seriously dwindling in that department. And I love blends with eucalyptus, so I thought I’d give this a go.
Dry, it smells very citrusy with a fresh hint of eucalyptus. I got 3 cups out of my sample and would have loved to try this iced, but I was craving this this morning so I didn’t feel like saving it haha. Today I steeped for 5 minutes, and the liquor is its characteristic bright pink, probably from the hibiscus and beetroot. It has a rather tart scent when steeped, and a hint of that metallic hibiscus smell lol.
As for the flavor, this one is very herby and tart, definitely hibiscus in this. Today I can actually taste some carrot I think, interesting. The eucalyptus is not overly present, maybe it provides a slight freshness to the blend, but it’s mostly a sour citrusy tea. A lot of fruits and veggies in this one and it makes for quite a fruity cup.
Overall, this one is not bad for a change in routine every once in a while, and I do crave it at times as it is super bright, but I imagine this would really be SPLENDID iced or cold brewed. Closer to summer I might pick up some more of this to try iced tea, it’s much too cold out to have that at this time of year haha. Happy to have tried this, but be a bit wary if you aren’t a fan of tart teas. Sweetener would probably tone that down, or a shorter steep time, but I am enjoying it as is this morning, and have also enjoyed the previous cups prepared the same way :)
This was a sample in my recent Herbal Infusions order, woot.
I’m really not big on citrus teas. I’m finding I’m exceedingly picky when it comes to fruit and tea. Anything fake it a deal breaker. Upon smelling this one, I was a little wary but I couldn’t just not try it haha.
So I brewed it up, and surprisingly it’s really not so bad. There is no fakeness or overwhelming sickening sweetness. In fact, it’s almost low on flavour, but to be honest I’d rather low true flavour than more fake flavour. There is a hint of almost carbonation of the end of the sip from the grapefruit and eucalyptus mix which is fascinating. I have a feeling this one would be even better iced. Perhaps I’ll use the rest of my sample to cold brew.
Update: This one IS much better cold. I just poured the rest of my mug into a cup and put it in the fridge rather than cold brewing. The grapefruit really shines as a cold tea.
Yummy!! This is what DT’s Pink Flamingo was SUPPOSED to be like, but wasn’t. I think they must have added something extra to the same blend, and it didn’t work out. For all you Pink Flamingo lovers, get your fill from Herbal Infusions!! There was still something I didn’t like about this blend, either the carrot or the eucalyptus. But it was still a great cup, one that I could have again. I enjoyed that it was light and fruity, much lighter than most of the fruity teas that you find out there nowadays. Give it a shot! It’s a beautiful loose leaf as well – and steeps up a nice rosy pink. It really hit the spot.
I went through my samples earlier and put them into some little craft drawers to give me easier access to them. I still need to make room on my shelves for my Christmas and birthday teas, but first the samples might as well be sampled.
A eucalyptus grapefruit tea doesn’t sound that nice to me, I don’t like the taste of either particularly, but it smells so fresh and fruity…a nice surprise. The blend has some beautiful orange colours that must be the carrot flakes and/or freeze dried tangerine pieces and large pieces of of dried sliced orange. I can also note the lemon grass and some hibiscus petals. Other than that the other ingredients blend in very well.
The eucalyptus smells lighter than I imagined it would (which again is to my surprise and happily so) but everything else smells sort of herbal like, just generic, but with a citrus freshness. No grapefruit as such.
Once steeped the tea is red in colour (must be the hibiscus) and it has a bizarre savoury scent. I say bizarre but it’s not in a bad way, just one that I’m finding hard to describe. Lets start down with the basics…ingredients… Eucalyptus? Hmmm.. sort of. Grapefruit? Can’t say it does. Citrus? Yes but more like orange. Herbs? Ding, ding. ding. very much so. Anything else? It has some sweetness and what I believe to be the lemongrass present. But the blend as a whole just has a very savoury feel about it.
Flavour is refreshing with some sour citrus fruits and herby sweetness. It’s rather pleasant but still unusual. The more I drink the more I can taste the grapefruit like flavour, it’s not pure by far (which is probably because this blend doesn’t actually contain any grapefruit) but it’s similar. Still getting savoury vibes from it though.
It’s a pleasant and unusual tea but I don’t think it’s really for me. Not something I would buy or likely crave but was nice to experience something new.
My new favourite tisane. Holds up well to a long steep time. Water temperature should be less than a full boil. I will boil the water and wait 2 mins before pouring it over. Fruity but not sour. Wouldn’t even know there was eucalyptus in it. Very enjoyable at any time of day.
