Taster’s Review:

This Fireberry Tisane from Tiesta Tea is a very unexpected tisane.  The name suggests to me a tisane with the warming power of ingredients such as chili pepper or perhaps ginger … but this tisane has neither.  And because I didn’t read the ingredient list before I took my first sip, I was surprised at how smooth this tasted.  It didn’t taste sharply tart the way many fruit and herbal tisanes do, and I suspect this has something to do with the rooibos in the blend.

Oh, it still has some tartness – not just from the hibiscus but from the three different berries:  cranberry, currants and elderberries.  But the sweet, slightly nutty, slightly honey-esque notes of the rooibos softens the tart bite.

This is a tasty blend.  I do still find myself a bit let down by the lack of “fire” in this blend, and I am wishing that there was in fact some chili pepper or ginger of something else that might give it a touch of heat.  As it is though, it’s a remarkably smooth tisane … with a nice sweetness and contrasting tart note that doesn’t take tart too far.

Enjoyable … one I would be happy to drink again.
