Hibiscus being the first ingredient makes me shudder. But like Splash!, it deserves at least a try. The scent is really not doing it for me dry or steeping – though it was ever so slightly better dry. And by that I just mean not quite as powerful. The cinnamon is coming out the longer it steeps away.

Oh dude. Is that ever a dark colour red/pink. There are an awful lot of ingredients going on here. At the very least it’s caffeine-free (after my 5 cups of black today that’s probably good).

Oh dear. That’s a bizarre flavour. I’m not sure where to start describing it. I knew that many ingredients couldn’t be a good thing!

I did take a second sip, and blech I taste something medicinal. Swing and a miss.

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, yoga, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug!

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs, rooibos (specifically red, I’m more open to green), honeybush, and matés are not my favourite. I tend to avoid them altogether unless others find them so amazing it would be a travesty to not at least try.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
