Katiek sent this to me over the summer in her incredibly generous mystery tea box and I’ll admit, I left this one to sit for awhile. I’m just not a huge fan of hibiscus, but it does have its uses, it is great for clearing all the mucus that builds up when your sick (sorry, kinda gross, I know.)

I pulled this out today because between the Vitamin C from the fruit and the hibiscus I thought it would be a great tea for when I’m sick. I’m not sure how much Vitamin C I’m really getting with my cup of tea since the heat process used in drying fruit decreases the amount present in the fruit (Vitamin C is heat sensitive.) I just figure some is better than none and nothing else is doing me any good.

On the plus side, since I can’t taste anything right now, I don’t even notice the hibiscus #winnerwinnerchickendinner… sorry, that’s the cold medicine talking… I should probably go back to bed.

No rating for now, I’ll rate this when I can actually taste again.

I am always interested in swapping so if you see anything in my cupboard that you want to try just send me a message. Please keep in mind that I order most of my teas in sample sizes and may not have a lot to swap. I’m also trying to keep my swaps limited to one a month so I don’t break the bank.

My favorite tea companies to order from are American Tea Room, Rishi, TeaVivre, and Single Origin Teas, however I am constantly lured away from my favorites by a good sale.

Ingredients I love in tea
rose, peach, oolong, osmanthus, vanilla, marshmallow root and peppermint

Ingredients I dislike in tea:
spearmint, chocolate, orange, hibiscus, sage and for the most part lemon.

I am a firm believer that sage only belongs in my thanksgiving stuffing/dressing and absolutely not in my tea.

Cinnamon, Chocolate, Burdock Root, and Goji Berries

Rating Guidelines:

100 – 90: Pantry essential and some of my all time favorites that I can’t live without.

89 – 80: You’ll have a pretty good chance of finding this is my pantry on a regular basis, but it isn’t the end of the world if I run out.

79 – 70: I might consider restocking this at some point if the price was right.

69 – 40: Not undrinkable, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again.

39 – 20: What in the world were they thinking? Probably still finished this just because I hate to waste anything.

19 – 0: Wow, that’s so terrible chances are pretty good I dumped it out and gave away the rest.

My current top five favorite teas:

China Black – Rishi Tea
Earl Grey Cream – Zen Tea
Lemoncello – American Tea Room
Nonpareil Anxi Qing Xiang TieGuanYin Oolong – TeaVivre
White Tea Rose Mélange – Rishi Tea
