Whoops! I thought this one was a fruit tisane! Therefore made some really silly mistakes. My bad! Thanks for the sample, Azzrian, and I’m glad you sent me enough to try again! Original review (minus the part about it being caffeine-free) follows!
Anyways, brewing this up, I could have sworn I was brewing up DavidsTea’s Goji Pop! Yes, another tea very similar to one I’ve previously tried! Although the ingredients here are completely different (ok, not completely, I think melon is the similar ingredient, but the blends look quite different). The aroma is hibiscus-tart-tangy, which doesn’t bother me likely because my tastebuds are anticipating a cup full of Goji Pop! We’ll see what they get…
Holy. Reminiscent of, but definitely not, Goji Pop. Also, I oversteeped this one; it is a bit bitter and overly sour from the hibiscus. I’m finding it difficult to distinguish anything else because of those two things. To be honest… I definitely prefer Goji Pop (which does not have an oversteeping problem). But I will have to give this one another shot with a) less tea and b) a shorter infusion time! Given my recent decision not to drink icky tea, this one barely passes due to the sour/bitter, but I’m still going to drink it because it’s not that bad. Rating reserved until the next time :)
ETA: Second infusion unpleasant – some different flavours coming out. Will just have to try again.
