HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM THE SORORITEA SISTERS!
Leaf Type: Fruit Tisane
Where to Buy: Jennifer’s Tea Garden
Sweet pear calms and soothes while tart and tasty pomegranate adds color and zest to this vibrant blend! Simply delightful and wonderful iced. Naturally caffeine free.
I chose this fruit tisane to review for today because these are two fruits that I associate with Thanksgiving. And this is really a wonderful tisane – one that would be great to serve along with dinner any time of year!
Even though the website does not indicate it, I suspect there is some hibiscus in this blend, I thought I spotted a few hibiscus petals in the dry leaf (which is comprised mostly of big chunks of fruit), and the tea brews up to a deep, ruby red hue which is indicative (usually) of hibiscus in the blend.
But, I’m happy to say that this doesn’t taste strongly of hibiscus. There may be a slight hibiscus-y tartness to this, but it is offset nicely by the sweetness of the pear. This tastes more sweet than tart (which is quite alright with me and my sweet tooth), and that is pretty surprising for a fruit tisane with hibiscus! Surprising, yes. Disappointing? No!
This has a remarkable flavor to it. Of course, it doesn’t taste like tea because there is no tea in it. It tastes very fruity. It is pleasantly sweet. It is just a little bit tart. I can taste the pear quite well in this (and pear tends to be one of those fruits that is really difficult to NAIL in a tea/tisane blend). I also taste the pomegranate here, as well as hints of other berries. I taste an apple-y kind of taste as well. It is a very ambrosial kind of flavor, and it is just perfect for the holiday!
I would like to take this moment to thank you, our readers, for making this such a happy year for the SororiTea Sisters. We love tea, and we are so glad to have the opportunity to share our love of tea with you. I am very thankful for each and every one of you! Enjoy your day with your family and dear friends, if you can’t be together on this day then let it be a day that you are with them in spirit… and of course, don’t forget to enjoy some tea, too! ~Anne aka LiberTEAS
