This is really quite nice. I was a little unsure about it when I first poured it into my cup, because the color was a deep, ruby red and the liquor was a bit thick, and my thought immediately was “too much hibiscus!” However, while the hibiscus has colored and thickened this tisane, it really hasn’t adversely affected the flavor.
Yes, I can still taste the hibiscus. But this is not an overly tart tisane. The hibiscus seems to round out the flavor of the raspberry, enhancing the tartness without going overboard.
For me, the real star of this tisane is the peppermint. I really enjoy the refreshing, crisp taste of the peppermint, and the way it provides contrast to the sweet/tart flavor of the berry notes. And it is just the right amount of peppermint: minty undertones without tasting like toothpaste.
This is a very satisfying tisane … one I wouldn’t mind drinking every now and again. I was unable to find this tea on the website, so I don’t know if it is still available. I hope so, because I’d like to add it to my shopping list!
