I put off trying this tea. Most of the time I don’t NEED to power up. When I wake up in the mornings I am ready to roll, no caffeine required. Sometimes I could use a lift during the day, though. But this has maté! This has hibiscus! Two things that I have occasionally had bad experiences with. Hibiscus is usually Iced and sweet around here.
I decided to give it a go today because it was either take a nap or do something to get the wheels spinning again. I went for it as a hot unsweetened cuppa instead of resorting to iced tea with it because I need to wake up NOW.
The nice surprise is that when the tea is really hot, it is smooth and minty! The green base is good, the maté isn’t a deeply roasted flavor like what I had before, and the hibiscus isn’t very strong…YET. I prefer spearmint to peppermint in most teas and the spearmint dominates the hibiscus until it cools. It is a super refreshing tea.
As the tea cooled, hibiscus came out more and more. That’s okay! I can reheat! And next time I will make it by the cup instead of by the pot so that I can enjoy its minty goodness.
Here’s the scoop!
