Decided to make another iced cuppa from my T2 sampler stash. Despite the name, this is far more of a fruity tea than a floral tea. The first flavor that hits me is a strong strawberry presence, which makes the tangy, punchy hibiscus/rosehip base come off a bit more sweeter and rounded. There is a bit of a deeper tart berry taste toward the end of the sip that must be the currant, and a very subtle floral touch right in the finish, almost as an afterthought.
Since I enjoy tart/tangy fruit flavors, I found it enjoyable enough. I think I would’ve liked it even more if the strawberry flavor remained dominant in the sip longer before the currant took over. Oddly named, though. Rose hip/rose may be in the blend, but they aren’t the show stealers here, so the name seems an odd choice and a little misleading to those that might be looking for a floral blend.
Flavors: Black Currant, Floral, Fruit Punch, Strawberry, Tangy, Tart
