Thanks Sil for this sample.
On first smell it is very delicious orange creamsicle smelling, then BAM – Hibiscus! I figured I had to give it a try anyway, sometimes hibiscus can be deceiving.
I am unsure of the smell of this tea. I can’t quite put my finger on what it smells like. Maybe creamy hibiscus.
I am also having a hard time describing the taste of the tea. I am getting the Rockets taste, like Raritea. There is creamy vanilla, citrus, hibiscus, slightly floral, but not necessarily rose. There is a sweetenss to it but it is also tart. Knowing the name of this tea I can certainly understand why it is called sweet orange cream. But if I had this tea in a blind taste test without knowing the name, I am not sure I would come up with sweet orange.
Overall is a good tea, but it feels a bit all over the place. I have some left and will try a cold brew to see how that tastes.
