Sample I found out about on Steepster. I placed my sample order on 3/16 and paid through PayPal. It ended up costing $2.80. 3/21 I received notice it was being shipped. It arrived today, 3/23, and was promptly had for dessert after dinner. It came with a nice pamphlet about their specialty tea blends and a hand written note on the bottom of my receipt.
Post-Steep Additives: 1 tsp German rock sugar, sweeter, softens the hibiscus but not much else.
I think this would taste good as a sweetened iced tea as well.
Resteep: was amazingly just as good as the first go!
