Green March! Granted this tea reads more like an herbal fruit and veggie blend; one wouldn’t even notice the inclusion of green tea unless reading the ingredients! I’ve been feeling a bit of a craving for hibiscus (my body could probably do with the extra Vitamin C, being on the mend from that food poisoning a week ago, so I’m not going to question that craving!) and I was surprised I actually had this blend tucked away under the Green Tea section of my (far too large) tea list. Sounds good to me!
Mmm. This tea delivers sweet, tangy, and savory notes all in one. I can really get behind this! It has that satisfying punchy hibiscus base that I really enjoy, but the beetroot and carrot give it this slightly savory flavor. There is a spicy, gingery top note, but it isn’t overly strong; I have some other hibiscus-ginger blends where the ginger is very spicy, but here it is a mild spiciness, adding a gingery tones to the veggie notes but not enough heat to leave a lasting aftertaste. The tea is tangy, but pleasantly so; Teapigs uses whole leaf in sachets, not crushed hibiscus petals, so it doesn’t have the strong tart notes that the crushed hibiscus so frequently used in bagged teas causes. It’s a very rounded tea; the sip starts out with a tangy fruit punch note, and ends with a more savory flavor of spiced beet and carrot juice. It feels warm and satisfying, and full of vitamins that I feel like I need right now. I’m going to try to get a few steeps out of my bag, and really make the most out of my two teabag sampler!
