Thanks so much, AJRimmer! I always wanted to try so many of the blends you sent! This one included. I envisioned a dark forest with this — maybe plums? I guess dark fruits, which sounds like a divine blend. Looking at the ingredients, not really plums — grapes! And not many more fruits here… which is misleading, other than apple. The blend of ingredients LOOKS dark anyway. I can’t really taste apple. Mostly rosehips with a hint of mint. I really wanted more here, but at least the rosehips aren’t overpowering. The second steep is lighter, even with a longer steep, but again, I’m just glad it isn’t overpowering rosehips. Hopefully the other Teavivre herbal blends are also able to tame the rosehips.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for full mug // 7 minutes after boiling // 2 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 6 min
