So, this tea actually smells like seabuckthorn. Not like one other tea I had, where it just tasted like rooibos/medicinal. It’s actual seabuckthorn. Which I’m familiar with, because there’s a vendor at the Saskatoon Farmer’s Market who sells seabuckthorn products, so I’ve had juice, ice cream (or sorbet/gelato, I don’t recall), and possibly other things. Either way, I recognize the flavour. And I’m stoked to see an absence of purpleish colouring – so no hibiscus! Yay! Instead, it’s kind of an orangey colour, which again fits with the colour of the fruit. Flavourwise, it’s interesting. Kind of tangy (not unexpected), and fruity, with almost a bit of drying astringency. Certainly interesting, though probably not a tea I’d drink overly often.
