Had this iced with 1/2 Minute Maid light Lemonade. YUM. Really brought out the citrus-lime flavor and sweetened up the hibiscus. I really like how RoT does hibiscus. I may have to get more of their hibiscus blends soon!

The seductive flavors of the tropics emerge like a soft, warm breeze with every sip of this tangy hibiscus tea. Hibiscus mingles with a squeeze of refreshing key lime, hints of lively rosehips and naturally sweet apples.

Good enough I’ll enjoy the rest, but it seems like it would be better as not a tea, perhaps a pie or jello?
Thanks for the sample Meghann M
Had this as an ICED Sample at Wegmans tonight. Again, pleasantly surprised at the Hibiscus mellowness but VERY happy…with the Key Lime Pairing it’s certainly something I could get used to ICED specifically. YUM. No…you aren’t in a Tales From The Crypt Episode…I really AM rating a Hibiscus tisane this high (based on ICED).
Sipdown! At least while my tastebuds are half-dead I can get rid of some of the dreadful hibiscus teas we have lurking around the house. Also a good boost of vitamin C, which I’m not sure will help but at least it can’t hurt. If I’ve caught what my mom has it’s probably pneumonia, so I’m really hoping I didn’t catch what she has.
Considering the smell, I think this would be good mixed with limeade, chilled, in the summer. As it is I won’t be buying it again to try. I think all those Zinger teas I liked as a kid put me off hibiscus/rosehip/cranberry in tea permanently. This is too sweet (stevia? I didn’t even know until now), overly fruity, and just kind of weird, but right now it doesn’t taste too bad. In fact I’m kind of liking it. It’s like warm kool-aid, and while that shouldn’t be comforting in the least it is. Now we’ll see if I can sip anything else down.
Well…. this one isn’t my favorite. It’s tart, but I just have a feeling it’d be better iced than it is hot. It’s doing that ‘hot jello-mix’ thing, but with some lime tartness. I kinda knew what to expect from a hibiscus tea, as I haven’t liked a single one I’ve tried, but because of the lime I was willing to give this once little shot (I weighed out 40cent sample of this stuff at the grocery store.) I’m not totally out of luck, as it’s still getting warm in TX as of mid-December, so….I can see making this iced in my near future. Yee-haw.
I was on the RoT website and saw their new line of hibiscus tea so I decided I’d give it a try. I’ve never had hibiscus tea before, so I really have nothing to compare this with. The color of the tea comes out as a nice crimson and the smell is tangy with acidic undertones from the lime. I really enjoyed this one, and I think it would make a great iced tea, although I haven’t tried it yet. The taste is like a lime cider and it is very refreshing. One of my friends tried this as well and enjoyed it as well.
