Tried this tea hot for the first time. I definetly enjoy more as an iced tea. It is kind of overpowering but is a refreshing sweet treat when its iced on a warm day.

“Sipdown, 172. Hot, unsweetened hibiscus? No thanks. But cold, lightly sweetened hibiscus (with some spices and a few other fruits that don’t do a ton in this but are slightly there)? Pretty yummy....” Read full tasting note

I so, so want to love this tea. I do love the fragrance and color, I just can’t get behind the taste when I steep it as hot tea. It’s just too tart for me. Citric acid is the third ingredient- WHY?! The hibiscus and rose hips are tart already, so why add more acid? That said, I can drink it iced, with added sugar. It’s good that way. But I prefer not to add more sugar to my diet, and I like hot tea. It’s been a disappointing experience with a tea I’ve tried to like for fifteen years.
I don’t love this tea. Its just too sour, too punchy and too overwhelmed by the sour pink passionfruit. To get it drinkable I have to only brew for a few minutes or add iced to lemonade or water and that seems to tone it down. I also find the licorice flavor to be somewhat unpleasant.
