I can’t taste the hibiscus at all, and am disappointed. I enjoy hibiscus. I think it might do well next time with some sugar or honey. As far as other red teas I have had this is not among my favorites and I don’t plan to buy it again. It is well executed (packaging, quality, amount) but doesn’t have enough pizazz.

Post-Steep Additives: none

resteep with honey, sweeter, less dry tasting, maybe even a little floral hibiscus and orange (not sure where the orange is coming from)

To add my thoughts to previous reviews, I had no idea there was hibiscus in this one either. I’ll have to look out for that in my next cup. This is the ML Collection version of Organic African Nectar, and like others that are based on the Mighty Leaf range, it does have some subtle differences. It’s less fruity, for a start. I don’t think that’s necessarily a good thing, as it was the juicy flavour of tropical fruit that really made Organic African Nectar appeal to me. African Amber Organic is primarily a plain rooibos, as far as I can taste, with light spicing and a hint of vanilla. The description says mango and hibiscus, but I can’t say I got either of those. I did pick up on a slightly jarring bitterness, so maybe that was caused by one of those? Back to the drawing board with this one, I think! I have a few more bags to experiment with before I make my final judgement :)

It’s interesting to me that this has hibiscus, because I honestly had no idea until I read it in the description. That’s rare in a hibiscus tea. I’m not sure if this tastes like mango, exactly, but I definitely get the vanilla and florals. I had this with lunch, and while it wasn’t life-changing or anything it was solidly pretty good—another reason why I was very surprised to find out about the hibiscus. I think I would drink it again.
