Taster’s Review:

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!

Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of “Gramma” and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn’t drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn’t cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn’t cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
