Okay! So, I pulled this one out of the sample box and read the ingredients. Hibiscus. Rats. My last experience with Hibiscus in a tea was not a positive one, but as I didn’t have to pay for the tea bag, I gave it a shot. It’s not bad, but I wasn’t all that impressed either. Being a Darjeeling helped it just enough to make it drinkable, but I HAD to add milk. Even then, the Hibiscus insisted upon being the main attraction, and made every effort to overpower the Darjeeling with its icky over-sweetness. I suppose if I was somewhere craving tea and this was all there was to choose from, I’d be a big girl and deal, but I won’t be seeking this tea out any time soon. In fact, I think the only reason I’ve rated this one so high is out of respect for the Darjeeling. Sorry Numi. No winner this time.

I love tea and Border Collies. I am a college graduate (Class of 2011, BA Psych from Bay Path College), so I no longer have to buy college textbooks, which I strongly disliked!

However, now there are these bills showing up asking me to pay back student loans.

Oh bugger.
