Study time tea. Not sure why I felt like pulling this tea out today. I was actually looking for more of an energy pick-me-up, but this is an herbal tea. I haven’t tried it in a long time now, though, so I kind of wanted to give it another shot.
Tea brews a dark fruity red, but the aroma is less poignant than I remember. It’s a lot weaker than last time, or many I am just remembering incorrectly. If I sniff from close up, I can catch mostly just the coconut, apple, and hibiscus notes in the aroma. I added a few pieces of rock sugar to it, because I remember feeling like the tea was quite heavy on the tart/bitter hibiscus. Hopefully the sugar will help balance it out.
First sips are promising. The sugar is definitely helping, because I can still feel some of the sourness, but would be quite stronger without the sweetener. Quite a fruity tea overall, with lots of apple and berry notes coming in through the flavour, and definitely lots of hibiscus. Still, it’s just okay. Though the sugar helped it a bit, the blend itself is not THAT enjoyable, though I feel satisfied enough with my choice today to drink it peacefully.
