Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tisane.
I was a bit freaked out when I measured this out into the basket of my breville. THERE IS A LOT OF HIBISCUS! Ugh! But I tried to keep an open mind, and it’s not really too bad. The lemongrass does soften it up a bit, gives it a slight buttery creaminess, and a nice citrus-y hint of flavor that compliments the berry-ish tones of the hibiscus.
However, I do disagree with TeaEqualsBliss – I think this is better hot than cold. When it cooled, I noticed that the hibiscus seemed to pop and the lemongrass sort of retreated. When it was hot, it was actually quite soothing … sort of like a mulled wine or something, but without the spice. This would be nice with a cinnamon stick in there, though!
