I’ve been terrible about actually reviewing my teas, so this is the second or third time I’ve made a cup from this sampler. The hibiscus colors the tea a pretty vibrant pink, which is at least interesting for aesthetics, especially if you appreciate pink, though it’s not my favorite.

Tastewise, the moment the liquid touches my tongue there’s a hint of sweetness, that’s quickly followed by sour as the lemon and lime become the dominant notes. It’s not unpleasant, as long as you appreciate the sour citrus flavor, but it is prominent. The green tea gives it a slightly earthy base that ties the flavors together. I remember I was surprised (because I wasn’t paying much attention to what the flavor makeup was when I made the cup), but enjoyed it quite a lot the first time. And this cup is not bad, but I think not quite what I was in the mood for, so it’s getting a lukewarm rating today.

For the record, I oversteep all my teas and enjoy a particularly bitter tea so don’t use sweetener.
