- Zombie Blood Orange was the next sample on the menu. For being an herbal, it’s got something in it that looks very like green tea leaves. It’s also got some hibiscus – to give the blood color. I’m not a hibiscus fan – it tastes bitter to me. Definitely has orange peel. But, it all comes down to the taste right? It’s very hibiscus. VERY hibiscus. I think there’s orange in there somewhere. I still don’t know what that green tea-leaf looking stuff actually is. I don’t like this at all. But as I said, I don’t like hibiscus. This might be better iced and highly sweetened. Otherwise, blea. Not my cuppa at ALL. Apparently I am NOT a zombie.


from my review of all the Think Geek Sampler at It’s all About the Leaf – go read the rest of it!

I’ve got a lot of interests: sushi, science fiction/fantasy, medieval recreation, cooking (specifically medieval cooking), reading, British science fiction (Doctor Who!), hand sewing and now TEA!!

My favorites tend to be oolongs and flavored black teas. I like highly flavored teas more than delicate ones. Rooibos tends to taste like dirt to me, and hibiscus is very sour to my palate. But I’m always up to try all sorts of things, and will often find things that I really like which I thought I’d hate.
