I realized today that I had not written any reviews for the teas I have been consuming on a daily basis since I returned to work. Whoever said teachers have an easy job has not actually taught a class of 20 students in a mixed grade before. Thankfully it is the weekend and I all I am doing is lesson planning and writing my long range plan for the school year.
While I do this, I decided to try a new tea and sip away while I worked. This did start off hot, but as time wore on it has now become cold, well warm since it has decided to finally give us summer when it should be fall.
Dried, I pick up the hibiscus flower more than the berries in the leaf. Brewed, it produces a deep red liquid with a very berry aroma. The first sip was a smack in the face that was welcoming, the black berries danced along my taste buds while leaving behind the lingering taste of elderberries and cherries. Every sip both hot and warm is pure delight and reminds me of sitting with my grandpa eating Bordeaux Cherry ice cream while my grandma set up the next round of Yahtzee.
