From Verdant Tea

Hibiscus is a seductive challenge. It steeps up bright red, with the most satisfying tart sweetness. However, many hibiscus blends are just too tart. Our goal was to bring out all that is beautiful in the hibiscus flower while cradling the tartness in comforting spice and depth. Elderberry actually provides the base flavor here with dark berry sweetness. A carefully engineered pairing of spices tempers the tart notes of the hibiscus and lets them play nicely with cinnamon and fennel sweetness. This blend is comforting and satisfying like drinking mulled hot apple cider, but more invigorating with the hibiscus notes. Wonderful hot or iced. For a fun treat, try infusing this in cider or wine.

Ingredients: Hibiscus, Clove, Orange Peel, Cinnamon, Fennel, Peppercorn, Burdock Root, Elderberry, Ginger, Peppermint. (All Organic)

Mmm the smell of this conjures up holiday memories, its all mulling spices and whole cloves simmering on the stove. But there are other more exotic notes and it is truly intriguing. It brews up a beautiful deep warm wine in my mug and a lighter more vibrant pink when poured into my sipping cup. I’m not anti-hibiscus but this is a tad tart for my personal tastes at least this evening, I get the orange and a hint of clove but can the fennel is escaping me. It has the opposite problem that the Spiced Elderberry Pu’erh had for me yesterday, not enough spice coming through in the taste. I’m sure it can be played around with time wise and I’m sure it would be brilliant with cider. Must rebrew so I can breath in the heavenly aroma. Ooo yes! There’s that touch of licorice sweetness. Second steep at 1 min is perfect for me!

So this is one of the blends I have been eagerly awaiting to buy from Verdant. I know that a lot of people seem to not like Hibiscus in teas. I for one love it! I love the tart and sweetness to it. I find that if you steep it in half of the time it usually will be perfect and not too tart.

I steeped this for 2 minutes and it was great. I have had many hibiscus teas, but with this one I find that the hibiscus is there but not entirely in your face. As it was brewing I could smell the Fennel and mint. When drinking it, I could taste the hibiscus with a licorice backing to it. Since I love licorice I loved it. I could not really make out the ginger or orange that was in the mix, but I know I will come back to it and spend some more time with in. I was just eager to try it..:)

I’m one of the hibiscus haters but glad you liked your tea! :)

Excited to read your review! I am finding the blends a wonder of restrained flavors bent by clever human tea magicians so that we the fortunate drinker can uncover hidden bursts of flavor …little by little!

I like it. It smells better than it tastes; but the taste is still, erm, tasty. The hibiscus is there but I didn’t find it too tart. The flavor I picked up on most, other than the hibiscus, is the clove. It will be a good nighttime tea as it has no caffeine. I have a hard time finding herbal teas that I like so this makes me happy.
