Ibelin Blend from Armeniac is another case of hibiscus done right! Ibelin Blend from Armeniac REALLY blew me away! Let me tell you a little bit more about this herbal tisane…
The ingredients in Ibelin Blend from Armeniac are wild oregano, black currant, nettle leaves, wild cherry leaves, and hibiscus. I have to be honest – Herbals are NOT what I grab off the shelf FIRST. And usually when I see a tea or tisane has hibiscus in it I tend to roll my eyes. BUT…with Ibelin Blend from Armeniac I was EXTREMELY surprised and HAPPY with the outcome of this cuppa!
Upon opening the bag I could smell a savory oregano and slightly tart currant aroma. For some reason the combined aroma took me back to my childhood. It took me back to one of my favorite pizza places growing up! The surroundings smelled similar and I don’t know why! I’m assuming it was because of the oregano and like-spices they used in their sauce paired with another childhood favorite of Loganberry Drink. Both were staples in this particular restaurant.
One infused I noticed the tartiness come thru more which was the combination of the currant and hibiscus. The hibiscus in this herbal blend worked lovely! It wasn’t over powering! And paired with nettle leaves, wild cherry leaves, and Oregano really counteracted it. Ibelin Blend from Armeniac offers a sweet and savory yin and yang that I can’t resist! This is nice hot but even better iced!
Here’s the scoop!
