From Twinings

Slightly different ratios to their Ginseng, Blackcurrant and Vanilla blend.

Their description:
The rich flavour combination of sweet blackcurrant, ginseng root and Vanilla has a delicious taste. It has an exquisite rose blush colour, and is naturally caffeine free with no added sugar so can be enjoyed at any time of day – it’s particularly perfect for a touch of warmth as evenings get colder. No artificial flavours.

This tea gave off quite a wonderful smell about half way through the recommended brewing time, and I was really looking forward to it. But the flavour was disappointing.

The vanilla is nonexistent, and the blackcurrant, ginseng and hibiscus just give off a bitterness. About half way down the cup it had settled a little, and the result was that the latter half of the tea became undrinkable.

The ingredients also list hibiscus first (the most by weight), then orange leaves and peel. Where were these two in the name? I’ll be making sure to check Twinings’ ingredient list next time I buy a fruit/herbal blend.

This was not an enjoyable cup.

Hibiscus is taking over the world. Insidiously.
