Leaf Type: Rooibos/Herbal Tisane
Where to Buy: Because UR Priceless on Etsy
FLORIDA SUNRISE Herbal Tea Blend reminds me of all the things I love about summer. The aroma of orange and the tang of hibiscus draw me in, and I can almost feel the warmth of the sun. Add in the antioxidant rich, good for you combination of green rooibos*, rose hips, and red raspberry leaf and you have awesomeness in a mug.

I gotta tell you, I wasn’t really looking forward to trying this tisane. Hibiscus! UGH!
However, the hibiscus isn’t a strong flavor in this. There is a certain tangy ‘hibiscus-ness’ to this but it’s not overpowering the cup. Instead, it seems to accent the orange notes in a really pleasant way.
The raspberry leaf together with the hibiscus gives the cup a berry-ish sort of taste that nicely complements the orange notes. The green rooibos has a light, fruity note that melds well with these flavors.
It’s a refreshing beverage. Sweet, fruity and pleasant to sip. I appreciate that the hibiscus hasn’t been overdone. I don’t get that heavy hibiscus texture nor do I get a strong flavor from it, and what flavor I do taste from the hibiscus marries well with the other flavors of the cup.
I enjoyed this.
