drank Hibiscus by Adonis Spices
1172 tasting notes

Probably my very first time trying pure hibiscus. I asked for a local tea when doing r/snackexchange and received this brand of hibiscus and camomile. Hopefully both would be good. But what I will do with 100 g of pure chamomile, I have no idea. Same with similar amount of this.

I put about three small pinches into strainer, as there isn’t any steeping parameters on the package. I thought it isn’t much, but then I realised that hibiscus is quite specific ingredient, so I let it be this way.

I did even rather short steeping, it was somewhere between two and three minutes. Deep red colour, but clear liquor. Smells… interesting, somehow fruity. Tastes tart, but again a bit fruity. I see a reason why it is added in fruit teas.

Not sure how to rate this tea and how to process that much tea.

Flavors: Fruity, Tart

I like to cold steep plain hibiscus in lemonade; it makes it taste sort of like a strawberry or raspberry lemonade.

That sounds like an interesting idea indeed! I can give it a try. Thanks Mastress Alita

Yikes! That’s a lot of tea! If you like sleepytime-type blends, you could always get some lavender, mint, lemongrass, and other stuff and mix them together.

I geuss it will be needed to be used in those blends Leafhopper. Probably have to do my own blends. Yay or nay? That’s the question :)

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Photographer now and then. Postcrossing and geocaching member. Very curious person. Logistics student (should finish in June 2021).

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
