I am not a huge fan of hibiscus but it also doesn’t scare me away from blends like it does other tea drinkers. I sometimes enjoy the tart taste that it gives a blend but I do not care for the unsweetened kool-aid like flavor it can give others.
I was a bit hesitant when I saw this blend on Mountain Witch Tea Company’s site but just about everything I have had from Kelly has been dynamite. So if anybody can do a hibiscus blend right, it would be her. I was also nervous with the ginger that was in the blend. There were some pretty large chunks of ginger in the sample bag she sent me. I’ve never had a blend where these two elements are together. Wasn’t sure how this was going to play out.
Steeped this one up like a traditional herbal and starting getting nervous when the water started to turn that deep red color. I took in a whiff and was shocked when I wasn’t over taken with the smell of ginger. Took my first sip, and I am impressed. This is really tasty. The two ingredients actually compliment each other and give this blend a tart semi sweet spicy profile. I can’t really describe this any other way. This is a unique blend for sure.
I know how that flavor profile sounds, but I really like this. So much so that I plan to pick up a 4 oz bag of it the next time I’m making an order with Mountain Witch Tea. I didn’t try this iced but I can’t wait to. I want more of this one and am rating this one pretty high.
Mountain Witch tea Co has done it again. Kudos Kelly!
Tea is a passion that quickly turned into an obsession, very similar to my love for polka dots, the horror genre, and anything that is geeky and fun.I drink all kinds of tea and will try a tea twice to make sure I didn't bumble the first infusion.
Besides SororiTea Sisters, I'm also the blogger and genius (I use that word very loosely) behind CuppaGeek, where I review tea, books, and the horror genre.
