From Mate Factor

Known as the Rose of Sharon, hibiscus offers the delicate flower petals that give our tea its crimson colour. Citrus Rose is our mate blended with the vibrancy of lemongrass, lemon myrtle and lime, delivering the tanginess of a zesty herbal tea.

High in Vitamin C, the added rose hips enhance the fruity flavour. Refreshing when served over ice on the hottest of summer days: a hot cup will also give you the sensation of overall warmth and vitality.

So I dumbed down the steeping and found that it wasn’t as overwhelmingly tart as it was the first time. But all the same, the hibiscus and citrus pretty much end up overwhelming any yerba maté flavour that might have been present. If someone gave me a cup of this without telling me what it was, I’d never be able to guess that maté was the primary ingredient in it.

If I was a fan of hibiscus I might be inclined to give this tea another chance, but I’m not so half of this tea will likely go into the Travelling Teabox and the other half will be put up for adoption (any takers?).

Cool, there’s about 18 teabags left and if I donate half to the teabox that’ll leave 9 for you, if that’s okay?

Jaime

That’s definitely more than enough! If you want to put more than 9 in the TTB, please go ahead.

Jillian

Okay will do – now do I have your address?

Jaime

I’ll pm you!

Jillian kindly sent me some bags of this blend…ever since I read her note about “the citrus and hibiscus forming an unholy alliance” in her mouth, I’ve been intriqued. I adore tart things…my lemonade, for example, should lock your jaw it’s so tart, and I brew hibiscus-based blends at 10 minutes or longer.

So, on to this. It’s definitely pink, and definitely smells like hibiscus. I can kinda smell the yerba mate underneath that, but in scent, it’s definitely not the star player.

It’s really not as tart as I was expecting. Actually, I really don’t find it tart at all. The hibiscus is in the fore, and there’s lemon-like notes, but the yerba mate taste still comes through for me as herbal/woodsy. Sweet without having anything added; I think adding anything would be a bad idea. Probably the best yerba mate blend that I’ve had, to be honest (I’ve tasted all of three, and the other two were blended with chocolate flavors, so please take that statement with a grain of salt). I think this’d be fantastic iced in the summer as well.

Jillian, thanks for sending this one to me!! I’m definitely enjoying it!

Each to her own I guess – I’m glad it’s found a good home. :D
