The Great Cupboard Excavation
Untasted teas remaining: 36
I must have bought this one during the summer to use for cold brewing. But since that’s not something I’m doing anymore since the weather is cooler, I’m trying it hot.
This is quite tart, but that’s actually not a bad thing in this case since there’s so much citrus. There’s also a bit of balancing sweetness somehow. I can taste orange, lemon, and a bit of grapefruit here, and perhaps even a sweeter citrus like a mandarin. Plus obviously, the hibiscus, which I think adds a nice bit of floral. There’s also a bit of more zingy artificial orange flavor, like Tang or vitamin C chewables.
It’s not amazing or anything, but it’s much better than I expected it would be as a hot beverage. Especially since in all fairness, it’s likely meant to be an iced tea.
