My dear husband isn’t really into tea. He’ll sip on a few of my tiny cups because they aren’t a commitment, but he starts to get stressed when I hand him a full mug. “What if I can’t drink all this?!” He feels a little less guilty now that he can give the rest to our tea pets Bessie and Fred.
So when he shows enough interest to pick a tea out, I’m going to get it. Even if it smells like berry lipstick.
It’s actually pretty good. It has a kind of hibiscus flavor with rosy hints, and every once in a while, I get a toasted green flavor from the tea base. There’s a hint of dryness on the back of the palate, but not much, and a zingy tang on the sides of the tongue as you drink it. The smell is thankfully subdued upon brewing, but make no mistake that the berry flavor is strong.
I think it’s another one of those teas that would be nice iced. Maybe one of these days I’ll get around to actually making iced tea.
I also got to break in my double-walled glass cups, which were great. They kept our fingers cool and really romanticized the color of the liquid. https://www.instagram.com/p/BGkP21DvTaP/?taken-by=hoalatha
