Yeah, stevia.I am one of those people who likes hibiscus, straight up. In Egypt, where it is native, I used to drink it often. It’s tasty and good for you.
Mind you, my mother was a big fan of sour and tart things, so my palate got accustomed to these tastes early, even though I was not much of a fan.
Enter Hibiscus Punch. I love Hibiscus, so when this went on sale, I thought what could possibly go wrong here? Thus, I ended up with mountains of this. Stevia, cinnamon, and hibiscus, ouf, no. Ginger too, I think.
I applied my Sleigh Ride approach of half leaf and half pure hibiscus, and now I am happy with it. The non-hibiscus flavours have thus been toned down. I quite like this now. This is my second day cold-steeping it this way for a refreshing afternoon drink. My rating reflects the low side of my doctored version, not the straight tea.
Also, who puts rooibos into a fruit or herbal tea? Who?
