From Verdant Tea

Hibiscus is a miracle flower, it petals yielding one of the sweetest and most potent herbal brews in the world. Bright red, tart and tangy, hibiscus is one of the most popular go-to herbal teas. Yet too often, hibiscus overpowers the palate and overwhelms with its tanginess. Our hibiscus berry rose is a tempered and balanced hibiscus blend that yields a more sophisticated brew.

Using all organic herbs and spices, we start with Hibiscus and the potent schisandra berry. We sweeten and temper the tart flavors with goji berries, rose, licorice root and coriander. The result is an herbal that is equally refreshing cold as it is comforting hot, and brews a stunningly bright pink. Naturally caffeine-free, this blend is great on its own, or with a touch of your favorite honey.

Ingredients: Organic Hibiscus, organic rose petals, organic licorice root, organic schisandra berry, organic goji berry, organic elderberry, organic coriander

Sipdown! I cold brewed the remainder of my sample, unfortunately it was a bit weak as there wasn’t much tea left. Still refreshing and something different though, for a caffeine free cold brew, this one is a top contender. Might re-order next year, but not for a while as I’m signed up to the Verdant blend club and I have enough blends coming my way for a while – excited about the preview of the November ones! See previous notes on this tea :)

OMGsrsly

Preview of November blends? Did I miss something somewhere?

MissLena

It’s on their facebook page under the album ‘November Blend Club ships soon!’ It’s mostly just photos, but a few hints about them as well :D

OMGsrsly

Ohh. I’ll go check. Thanks! (No Internet at home so I’ve been lax about Facebook!)

MissLena

No prob :) I won’t spoil them on here for anyone who doesn’t like seeing hints before getting the teas, but they look pretty awesome!

JustJames

grrrrrr. the only reason i ever consider reconsidering my holdout status regarding facebook is steepster, lol! sigh.

MissLena

Lol if you I can message you about the blends :)

Sorry I haven’t had the time to read everyone’s tasting notes lately. I’m scrambling to prepare for my fifth and final presentation for the semester, and am simultaneously trying out some of the Verdant teas I’ve been neglecting to figure out whether or not I should order some stuff during this weekend sale.

I cold brewed my sample of this. Dumped it in my 500ml measuring cup and let it steep in the fridge for about six hours. I’m left with a ruby red tisane smelling like… herbs?

I took a sip before reading the ingredients list, and right behind the tart hibiscus note, I thought to myself, “Huh? Am I tasting licorice in here?” And so I am! And there’s a powerful lingering herbal note that I’m picking up. Turns out that’s the coriander. I’m one of the lucky ones whose taste buds interpret cilantro as metal, and while coriander doesn’t quite do that to me, it’s still off-putting for me. This tisane leaves such a weird feeling on the tongue. I can barely tastes the berries in here.

The licorice and coriander are even overpowering the rose, which sucks. I liked the sound of berries and rose together. If I go a couple minutes without taking a sip, I’m only left with the licorice lingering on my tongue, which I don’t mind, as I really like licorice root, but it is so out of place here.

I appreciate the creativity but all this has done is remind me that I don’t like coriander. The more I sniff the concoction, the dirtier/muskier the coriander smells to me. Oh well.

OMGsrsly

You probably really don’t want to do the blends club. I think everything has had coriander so far. Or almost everything. For me it’s soapy. :)

Fjellrev

Haha thanks for the heads up. I wasn’t planning on signing up anyway. Soapiness seems to be the most common complaint. It makes me wonder what cilantro and coriander taste like to “normal” people.

OMGsrsly

My mom LOVES it. I think it’s sort of a mix between parsley and basil? Parsley always makes a good substitution, at any rate.

Cavocorax

I love it in guacamole, but I’m not sure about it in tea.

Well, I’m going to try cold brewing this, but I think this one is a miss. I had to add some honey to cut the licorice root taste (there’s hardly any licorice root in it, but the aftertaste just lingers for me). I think it might be the coriander that’s just not working for me.

The idea of hibiscus and rose is a lovely one. I could see rose petals working really well in Agua de Jamaica.

Yeah. I like hubby but this blend was a miss. I actually only liked one of te most recent new ones

OMGsrsly

Which one did you like?

Chizakura

I’ve been really curious about this one. I had originally planned to grab some on my most recent Verdant order, but they were out of stock. And I wasn’t willing to wait, heh. :D So next order after THAT then.

OMGsrsly

It is so weird! Total hit or miss I think. :)

Sil

Uh the one I liked was the vanilla one? vanilla citrus

OMGsrsly

Ooh. That’s my favourite, but the others were pretty good for me as well.

Chizakura

Maybe I’ll buy this as a sample size. I think you’re right about it being hit or miss, people tend to love it or REALLY not care for it from what I’m seeing.

I love the Vanilla Citrus Spice as well. x3 So good and unique with its combo of flavors. I’m about to try out Orchard Spice now too~

OMGsrsly

I like orchard spice, but it needs more apple. Good thing I just made some applesauce. :) I’ll add it to the tea like one can do with jam, for a little something different.

Sipdown! I purchased a small sample of this one, knowing that i probably wouldn’t like it. While i don’t mind hibiscus, i am not a fan of floral teas. In drinking this one, I can see why verdant recommends that this be cold brewed. I think this would be one of those teas that really pops as a cold brew. I added a little honey to this one and it brought out the flavours of the goji berries. before the honey there was an abundance of rose and coriander. While this is an ok blend, it’s really not for me.

Bummer :/

I am on a roll today with the rose teas, this is my third one of the day. I didn’t even realize I had this in my cupboard, it must have come as a free sample with my last Verdant order.

This really is an odd blend and one that is definitely not to my tastes. It was much lighter on the hibiscus than I expected, which was a plus since I don’t care for it. The coriander and licorice root gave the brewed tea an odd flavor which was followed up by the rose. I was glad that the rose wasn’t as overpowering as I expected based off the scent of the dry leaf.

After taking a sip of it hot I fully understand why Verdant recommends that this tea be cold steeped. It was much more enjoyable once I let it cool in the fridge, but still not something I would reorder.

Ok this tea warm is….. unnatural…and kinda gross…I wont lie.
I mean when I opened the bag I was a little put off because it wasn’t quite what I expected but ya know….wont know till you brew it.

Gonna put it on ice…..

It’s much better cold….I mean MUCH better…it’s an amazing transformation.

I taste rose and berries…..and surprisingly not so much hibiscus…it’s pretty mild…it’s kind of in the aftertaste…the after taste is like a tart-ish rose…a lot of rose in the after taste. but i wouldn’t call this a perfume-y tea by any means.

It’s a good floral herbal…but not one I think I’ll be restocking up on when it’s gone.

I’m actually drinking this one hot, but I’m quite sure that it would be really good as a cold steep.
I’m getting mostly berry, some tart – but not as much as I was expecting, and only a hint of floral at the end. I’m not really into florals but this isn’t too much, so I’m ok with it.
I’m happy to have tried this, but I don’t think it’s something that I need to keep stocked.

First time drinking this blend made it very warm, lovely color hint of rose, taste well blended berry taste, not too sweet. Maybe next time I try it with a little sugar.
