5 Tasting Notes
I find this tea very refreshing iced. I do wish they would back off on the hibiscus though. It makes a kool aide type treat with some sweetener, and blended with Teavana’s Pinapple Kona Pop. I don’t like this tea so well when it is hot. My kids LOVE to eat the blueberries after I steep this tea b/c they are just freeze dried.
Let me just say that I was pleasantly surprised by this tea. I was expecting to taste some orange in my chamomile tea and have a calm tummy at bedtime. What I got was a warm cup of dessert! This stuff tastes like candy. The smell reminds me most of cotton candy. I got 2 pouches in a sampler, and had to go out and get a whole box!
This is one of my favorites. It is perfect hot or iced, and is the perfect drink in the evening when I want something sweet.
Let me just say to those of you who did not care so much for it- this tea WILL be tart/ bitter if you oversteep it or use water that is too hot! 165-175 degrees, and under 1 minute for steep time, and I think you will enjoy it much more. It also does need some sweet for balance, but I use stevia and that works very well. (sweet leaf)
I had this tea, and it was a favorite for YEARS. Now Republic of Tea no longer sells it. I cannot find a replacement for this, please help me- contact republic of tea and request that they bring it back! They will listen, and you will be SOOO glad they did.
