From The Tea Practitioner

Beautiful, hand-picked flowers from small holders in Malawi. This hearty and tart flower creates a distinct vibrant red liquor – the perfect natural food colouring. The applications of hibiscus are endless – great in cocktails, as a refreshing iced beverage, and as a flavouring for desserts.

The Tea Practitioner Advent Calendar 2022 – Day 9

So I cold steeped most of this sample in lemonade, because hibiscus lemonade is yummy!

But I kept about a teaspoon to make as a hot cuppa. It’s tasty, tart but not too tart, and with a fruity edge to it. There’s a mustiness that appears at the end of the sip for some reason, but otherwise it tastes a bit like cranberry which is nice!

As for the lemonade, it’s scrumptious. I let it steep all day and it has a beautiful jewel-like red color. In this combination, the fruitiness of the hibiscus reminds me more of raspberry than cranberry, and it adds a lovely sweetness and depth to the lemonade. Nom.

I hadn’t thought of cold steeping my hibiscus petals in lemonade. Must try soon!

A very thoughtful friend bought me like three ounces of hibiscus that I’ve been procrastinating drinking…I’ll have to try this too!

We love lemonade and I make a lot when Ashman is off work especially and lately have been drinking salted orange blossom lemonade. I am in love with it.

Adventaggedon Day Nine – 3/5

When I saw this tea today I wasn’t really sure at first what I wanted to do with it since I wasn’t in the mood for straight, hot hibiscus. However, I did have some sparkling lemonade in the fridge so I ended up using the sample to make a hibiscus concentrate to mix with the lemonade once it had cooled.

It was super refreshing with really vibrant, bright top note of almost berry-like tart hibiscus with more of the sweeter citrus notes to finish off the sip. I drank the full mug of it very, very quickly. Also, somehow my drink ended up being the most aggressively coloured almost highlighter/neon red. It looks very unnatural in photo but I swear that my IG photo for the day isn’t actually edited!

EDIT: Also, it was interesting to me that this was a different cut size of hibiscus than what I already owned from The Tea Practiioner. My current bag is more whole flowers, which are super striking visually. These were closer to the more conventional cut used in tea blending.
