Had a little sampler packet of this, which I think I got in a long ago DAVIDsTEA order. It suggested using 500ml of water, but there just didn’t seem enough leaf in the packet for such a heavy/chunk herbal so I cut it back to 350ml, left in the fridge cold brewing for a few hours.
I thought this would be fruitier/tangier, but there was so little hibi in my packet that my tea barely colored the lightest of pink, and I wondered if I should add some from my plain hibi leaf stash. The flavor tasted very sweet coconut to me (is there coconut flavoring? There isn’t any in the ingredients, huh…) Also a mild, sweet apple. Perhaps a subtle pineapple note, but without any tanginess it isn’t really coming forward for me.
I think my sampler was a bit weak and not a good mix of ingredients, which may be why I’m really only getting a coconut note and nothing else. It was still a refreshing cold sip.
Flavors: Apple, Coconut, Fruity, Pineapple, Sweet
