So at my sister’s wedding reception, there was a chest with a bunch of individually wrapped Higgins & Burke teabags. I tried one, an Apple Cinnamon herbal tea (if I haven’t logged it, I will do so shortly) – it was kind of icky. I didn’t want to drink 15 cups of tea, so I squirrelled away two teabags to take home – this one, and a different herbal.

So, I think I perhaps should have looked at the ingredient list before nabbing this tea… does’t sound all that appealing, honestly. Hibiscus, chicory, lemongrass, licorice root… none of which exactly fall into a category of my favourite flavours.

Unfortunately, this is a definite miss. Even with a short infusion of somewhere between 2-3 minutes, hibiscus is dominant in the cup, which was obvious by the colour even before I tasted it. It’s fairly sour, and although I can almost taste raspberry, it’s not quite there. Raspberries are not that tart. I would know; I grew up with bushes of them in my backyard. Perhaps this would be ok with sweetener, but to me, it’s too much like Tazo Passion, which I find rather unappealing now.

The ingredients don’t go together that well. It doesn’t taste objectionable but it doesn’t really taste good either.

Unfortunately there are no raspberries or black currant in this Raspberry Black Currant tea. Maybe the natural flavor is supposed to taste like raspberry and black currant but I am having trouble tasting it.

Actually I kind of like Rosehip & Hibiscus tea (which are the first two ingredients in this tea) but the other ingredients don’t go that well together.

At least it is a beautiful ruby red color. It makes me happy just looking at it.

Flavors: Hibiscus, Rosehips

Ugh, lots of companies do that. “This tastes like raspberry!” No it’s hibiscus. I see that with juices too. “This is cranberry/raspberry!” No, it’s 95% apple juice.
