First of all I want to say that this tea is BEAUTIFUL! Both in color and smell. It brews up a gorgeous reddish pink color. It’s so pretty it makes me wish I had a clear mug to admire it in (specifically the clear perfect glass mug from David’s Tea – the one with the tree on it). I am in love with the smell this tea gives off. It’s very lemony which is awesome for me because I absolutely love lemons! I even like to eat them raw by themselves =)
I think the name African Summer really fits this tea. I’m picturing a red sunset over dry African plains…maybe there’s a zebra lingering somewhere in the distance…
I like that this tea is naturally sweet and tarty. The lemon isn’t too overpowering and neither is the hibiscus. They are in perfect harmony with eachother. I can definitely see myself reaching for some of this on a cold winter day when I need a little warmth. It would also be a great go to during cold/flu season. I think I’m going to have to order some more of this!
I’m really very happy with this tea. I can’t wait to try it iced! Mmmm…fabulous African Summer!! So glad I tried this.
