I recently ordered some of this tea to give as a gift, and my friend was nice enough to share a bit of it with me so that I could try it too, since I hadn’t tried it before.
There are a lot of different fruits in this: apples, raisins, currants, and sweet orange peel. There is also hibiscus. As m0st of you know, hibiscus is not my favorite herb, but, I am hoping that there is enough other ingredients in this to keep me sipping.
After steeping for five minutes, the tisane is deep, ruby red. Hibiscus! Ack! Fortunately, though, the hibiscus does not contribute a lot of tartness to the cup, nor does it give off that syrupy texture (at least, it doesn’t after the five minutes steep time).
That is not to say that the tisane is not tart, because it is, but, it is a mild tartness that contrasts well with sweetness of the apple and raisin. I can also taste the rose in this, which is a really nice touch. It’s hard to pick out specific notes, the flavors all pretty much meld together to create a cup that is a little tart and a little sweet, fruity and a little flowery.
It’s a nice cup. Not something I’d drink daily, I’ll leave that to my neighbor!
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!
