Day 5 on my Tea Advent Calendar from Teanzo.
I really wish this didn’t have hibiscus in it. The tartness of the hibiscus almost overwhelms everything else in this blend. I taste mostly hibiscus. I taste more lemongrass than I do chamomile. I feel like the chamomile is nearly lost in this. I do pick up on notes of apple and a soft, honeyed taste that I attributed to the chamomile, but they’re difficult to pick out with the heavy taste of hibiscus.
For me, the redeeming factor of this blend is the lemongrass. It brightens things up a bit with it’s citrus-y note.
As I mentioned in my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/12/05/24-days-of-tea-holiday-countdown-day-5-from-teanzo-1856/ I do think that this blend would taste much better with some spices. Perhaps steep some mulling spices on the stovetop for a while and then add the tisane to steep for 4 – 5 minutes before straining it all off. (You don’t want to steep this longer than 5 minutes otherwise you’ll have more hibiscus than you want!)
