‘Samurai’ Traveling Teabox – Tea #4
A tea company I’ve never heard of before. And reminding me of one of my favorite bands: BEACH HOUSE. Check out their album ‘7’ which might be my favorite, if you’re new to them. This blend is white and black teas with all sorts of berry in the mix. I really wish there wasn’t hibiscus — it takes over. dang it. I’d love to be tasting all sorts of berries on this unique base instead of sour hibiscus. To be fair, I think this is supposed to be an iced tea but I hot brewed it. But I could swear this blend is 100% hibiscus in the resulting flavor. What a shame.
