Dry, I smell red fruits – it smells like raspberry to me but that’s probably rather pomegranate and goji berry. Steeped, it’s a clear pomegranate smell, a bit like a diluted pomegranate juice. Since hibiscus is a major ingredient, that’s pretty much all it tastes though. Not worth trying hot. This was clearly thought out to be drink cold or iced. Between the two, I prefer it iced because cold-steeping doesn’t bring out any flavours. At least iced you get the hibiscus.
I’m tired though of Kusmi and Løv marketing strategy saying that this kind of tea will make you happy, this kind of tea will detoxify your body, and now this kind of tea will make your recover after a run or a yoga class? That’s absurd. You need a good substantial meal after a workout, that’s it.
