Usually when trying a tea for the first time, I follow the brewing instructions. This said to brew for 7-10 minutes, but I pulled this out of the water after 4 minutes because it started looking like some frightening syrupy blackened-pink concoction that would come alive if I left it to brew any longer. I suspect that having the brew times exactly the same for all the herbal teas is more laziness than coincidence, but I digress.
The aroma is faintly tart, but I didn’t need to have braced myself before taking a sip. It has more tartness than flavour, but it doesn’t make me pull the “I just put something incredibly tart in my mouth” face.
A good contender to replace your cup of hot blackcurrant when you’re feeling a little under the weather, it would probably be great as a poor man’s Ribena too – iced with soda water.

Hibiscus syrup over crepes… yum!

Ooohhh yum! You could probably make a sugar syrup using this… mmm…

Actually Miss Sweet, if it’s already thick and syrupy I was thinking leaving it as is.

I have a blend I call Fruit Punch- it consists of mostly hibiscus, with a little bit of Adagio’s Blood Orange, and a pinch of rose petals. The hibiscus has a very deep, tangy flavor. The orange sweetens it up a little, and the rose adds a nice floral touch. I love my “Fruit Punch” iced, but tonight I’m savoring it hot.
