drank Hawaiian Island by Tea District

(First review post-redesign, so my apologies if anything goes wrong)

I received this from justnord a while back and I’ve been looking forward to trying it out. I steeped according to my usual “herbal” guidelines – 2tsp into the cup, 2tsp of sugar and add water at boiling for ~5min.

It smelled a little unpleasant – kinda sickly, fruity sweet in the same way that the Youthberry did…but this actually steeped up rather nicely. It was a surprising deep red/burgundy colour in the cup and had a delightfully fruity taste (a bit reminiscent of Hawaiian Punch, in a good way). There’s a slight bitterness that I think comes from the hibiscus, but it doesn’t really detract from the other flavours.

This tasted much better once it cooled off, so I’d be much more likely to make it as an iced tea in the future. It’s quite tasty, though, and I’m glad I got to try it out.

Overstressed aspiring model…tea is what gets me moving in the mornings, calms me down at night and fills all the moments in-between.

I’m still in the everything is delicious and I want to drink it all phase of my exploration, so I’m open to swaps, TTBs and trying new things. (with the exception of jasmine…that icky stuff tastes like soap)

My cupboard is things I have and am willing to swap (either I didn’t like them that much or I have a lot of them) and my wishlist is mostly things I’ve tasted and want to buy or swap for in the future.
