New Sensation Tisane from Hari Tea

Tea Description:

What adult doesn’t look back and wistfully remember a time when he or she had more plentiful energy?  We spend enormous amounts of time and money trying to satisfy the longing for the feeling of newness – eagerness to take on life with no thought of limitation.  We love the old feeling of a new sensation.  And we certainly love the refreshing taste of hibiscus and mint.

Taster’s Review:

As I was reading the above description, I couldn’t help but think … no, I certainly do not love the taste of hibiscus.  Sorry … but hibiscus is just one of those things that does not do it for me.  So, I took on this New Sensation Tisane from Hari Tea with a bit of dread … feeling certain I would really dislike it.

And … even though I can’t sit here and say I love it … I don’t hate it either.  It’s not bad.

This bagged tisane (a nifty little woven fabric bag, I like these because they don’t end up imparting a funky “paper” taste to the brewed liquid) isn’t something that I’m going to jump up and down and get all excited over … but, after steeping for five minutes, I like that the hibiscus and the mint are balanced enough so that I’m not tasting this overwhelming tart flavor nor do I get a heavy, syrupy-thick texture.  It is thicker than say a pure mint tisane would be because the hibiscus does give the cup a slightly heavier consistency.  But, after steeping for five minutes, it did not get too heavy, thick or syrupy.

And I like that the mint offsets some of the tart of the hibiscus too.  This is neither too minty nor too hibiscus-y.  It has a really nice balance between the two herbs.  It is just a little bit tart, and a little bit zesty from the mint.

Overall, it’s a drinkable beverage.  Not one that I’d probably want to drink every night or anything, but I would drink it again if it were offered to me.  A nice surprise!
