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!
