I woke up to my Teatoxy package arriving today! I’m impressed with the presentation. Very pretty. The dry ingredients consist of mostly larger chunks which is nice to see, and my first indication speaking to quality. I get a mild minty and herbal scent out of the bag.
It steeps up a darker pinkish red, the rosehip, I’m guessing? The prominent flavor here is definitely hibiscus with some lemongrass. The mint is mild and mostly at the end of the sip and aftertaste, though it gets more noticeable as the tea cools, and seems to provide a counterbalance to keep the tartness in check. The rest of the flavors seem to meld nicely and support in the background. It tastes very clean and fresh to me, it makes me wish I liked hibiscus more, and it would probably be pretty good iced. I can believe the company’s claims of being careful about picking their ingredients. I’m getting a small bit of a drying sensation as I finish my cup, but nothing overwhelming, and no medicinal taste that I can detect.
Overall, I’m impressed with the quality so far. Crisp and clean, and I won’t have any problems drinking this in the mornings for the next while. I like!
Big thanks to Teatoxy for giving us such a great deal in exchange for reviews, I’m going to enjoy trying these!
