Not bad as far as herbals go. Had this on a whim in a Mt. Dora tea shop to avoid caffeine. I was worried the hibiscus – the primary ingredient – would be too tart and overpowering. At first, it was, but throwing a packet of raw sugar really helped being out the flavors, such as the berries. I also tried this ice without the sugar, and I think it’s better iced. Overall, not bad, and there’s an impressive list of fruit in these teas.

I too, am not a big fan of fruity herbal teas, but this one is probably the best one I’ve had in a long time. I added a little bit of sugar to mine, which brought out the fruit flavor nicely.
On another note, I realize that most tea-bags are designed for environmental and cost factors, but Novus has a decent design to their pyramid bags. I feel like their pyramid tea bags allow for better expansion of the tea leaves than most brands. So, kudos on that one.

This tea is very floral and only secondarily fruity. Normally I’m not a fan of floral teas but this one is pretty pleasant. I wouldn’t buy it, but I might drink the other two samples I have of it.

Backlogging from the weekend. I’m usually not into fruity herbals but this one would prob be ok iced for those who do. It was fairly good for a fruit herbal…from someone who doesn’t usually like them…so I will give a thumbs up.
