A Berry Frui-tea July! Hey look, I found a tea with a name that nearly matches my theme name… works for me! This is another from the Great T2 After Christmas Sampler Haul of January 2018, and I’ll likely be whipping up the other fruit tea samplers I nabbed then during this month, too. Since they only make two servings, they don’t take long to chill when I brew them up iced (my preferred way to drink fruit infusions!) and are easy sipdowns (and I could use some freed up cupboard space!)
This is a fairly standard hibi-hip fruit infusion, that reminds me a lot of TeaSource’s Red Berries in flavor. It is a little less punchy than some infusions I’ve tried, with a fairly strong dark berry/red berry sort of flavor. I taste a lot of blackberry notes, rounded out with a tangy raspberry/hibiscus base, and a touch of a strawberry sweetness on the finish. It’s a very refreshing tea. As per usual, probably not the sort of tea the hibi-hip naysayers are going to enjoy, but if you like semi-sweet tangy fruit teas, it’s quite nice. I’ll probably be enjoying a lot of these types of teas over the summer.
Flavors: Blackberry, Fruity, Hibiscus, Raspberry, Strawberry, Sweet, Tangy, Tart
