This has a very rich, red color. This is wonderful iced and with some sugar. There’s a refreshing, crisp, tangy aftertaste. There’s not a single ingredient whose flavor is prominent in the tea. I like to mix the loose leaf tea with some loose leaf rooibos; the earthy, robust flavors of rooibos adds a wonderful complexity to the different flavors of this tea. With rooibos, it’s great at any time of day: a morning energizer, an afternoon pick me up, and, (if served hot) a great night time soother. I think honey would compliment all the flavors.
