From DAVIDsTEA

What are two words we’d use to describe Organic Simply Hibiscus? Refreshing and uncomplicated. This herbal infusion is made with nothing, but pure and organic, small-batch hibiscus grown in Burkina Faso. Reminiscent of ripe red fruit, it’s deliciously tart but not too bitter and steeps a vibrant ruby red that’s practically mesmerizing. It’s just too good to mess with. Instead, we recommend sipping it on ice or on its own. Either way, it makes for the ultimate mid-day refresher.

What makes it great:

Made exclusively with pure and organic, small-batch hibiscus from Burkina Faso.

A straight caffeine-free infusion that’s oh so refreshing!

Tastes amazing iced with the sweetener of your choice, as a TeaPop or as a top-off to another tea.

How it tastes:
Pure, bright & tart—just like a ripe, red fruit

Organic hibiscus from Burkina Faso.

Did you know that DT carries straight hibiscus now?

We actually pretty sneakily released this tisane around two weeks ago, and it hasn’t really gotten mentioned/called out anywhere so it’s an easy one to miss.

When we started looking for a straight hibiscus to carry we ended up tasting a lot of different hibiscus samples from all different origins. Like, a lot of hibiscus. There were some tasting where it was just an entire cupping line up of hibiscus over and over. We tried productions that were incredibly tart and sharp and some that were surprisingly sweet with really intense berry notes. It was a rough tasting line up on the palate.

In the end, this was our favourite! Why? Well, we thought it had the best balance of all the things a hibiscus drinker would want but was also pretty approachable for someone who maybe hadn’t tasted a lot of straight hibiscus. It’s got some bright, lively top notes but it’s not super aggressive – unless you steep it for a really long time because you want that quality to come up – and the body and finish have more natural sweetness and a hint of a berry type of flavour!

Personally, I don’t know a ton of people who actually drink straight hibiscus – let alone straight hot hibiscus (unless you’re making a mulled beverage, perhaps). Mostly I think people use it as an ingredient to make other beverages, which is a great option for adding colour or a nice punch of flavour. However I have actually had this iced a few times because it’s pleasant enough that, if I’m in the mood for something stronger with some tang, I can get through a full cup with no issue.

In fact, earlier this week I decided to do a “teas I drink in a day” theme day and I ended up making a verrrryyyy strong iced cup of this to sip on over lunch and in the meeting I had right after lunch!

Friendly reminder that I do not numerically rate DAVIDsTEA blends as I’m currently employed there and it would be an obvious conflict of interest. Any blends you see with numerical ratings were rated prior to my employment there. These reviews are a reflection of my personal thoughts and feelings regarding the teas, and not the company’s.

I’ve had a straight hibiscus tea once, sweetened lightly and iced. It was pretty good. I feel like perhaps blenders sometimes use lower quality hibiscus as an addition to their teas? I’ve definitely had some hibiscus that has particularly stale, unpleasant flavour as well. This one sounds worth trying!
