drank Hibiscus Berry Rose by Verdant Tea
2221 tasting notes

Well, I’m going to try cold brewing this, but I think this one is a miss. I had to add some honey to cut the licorice root taste (there’s hardly any licorice root in it, but the aftertaste just lingers for me). I think it might be the coriander that’s just not working for me.

The idea of hibiscus and rose is a lovely one. I could see rose petals working really well in Agua de Jamaica.

Yeah. I like hubby but this blend was a miss. I actually only liked one of te most recent new ones

OMGsrsly

Which one did you like?

Chizakura

I’ve been really curious about this one. I had originally planned to grab some on my most recent Verdant order, but they were out of stock. And I wasn’t willing to wait, heh. :D So next order after THAT then.

OMGsrsly

It is so weird! Total hit or miss I think. :)

Sil

Uh the one I liked was the vanilla one? vanilla citrus

OMGsrsly

Ooh. That’s my favourite, but the others were pretty good for me as well.

Chizakura

Maybe I’ll buy this as a sample size. I think you’re right about it being hit or miss, people tend to love it or REALLY not care for it from what I’m seeing.

I love the Vanilla Citrus Spice as well. x3 So good and unique with its combo of flavors. I’m about to try out Orchard Spice now too~

OMGsrsly

I like orchard spice, but it needs more apple. Good thing I just made some applesauce. :) I’ll add it to the tea like one can do with jam, for a little something different.
