I first steeped this teabag two nights ago. I noticed the water turning pink and was worried about hibiscus ruining the cup for me. I’m starting to realize that Theodor might know how to do hibiscus in an appropriately moderate amount! I enjoyed the cup. The hib added a slight tartness that went well with the other fruits. I didn’t take any notes on the first steeping, but I did a second steep tonight. The flavors are weaker than the original cup, but still there. The hib is almost non existent. It almost has a pear flavor to it, but I think the fruit in this blend is a berry I’m not very familiar with. I can pick out the papaya which blends right into the pineapple. My mouth is left feeling a little dry, but I actually like this one which surprises me! I’d like to try it again for sure!
