This tea was deliciously sweet-tart!
Far more sweet than tart, but the little extra zip that kiwi provides was certainly present. The hibiscus can be detected in the tang as well. It was also full of lots of other herbs I didn’t taste. And some I’ve never heard of before. If you like to know what you consume, this may be a good educational opportunity for you!
The tea is advertised as an “invigorating alternative to…. caffeine”. Not being at all susceptible to caffeine, I can’t say I felt susceptible to this tea’s energy claims either. However, it certainly wasn’t a sleepy time tea, as the tartness alone is stimulating. Which brings me to another observation. The instructions are to brew the tea and serve hot. It was pleasant warm. But it was stellar as an iced tea!
I would get this tea to have on hand to make bottles of iced tea, ready to go on a hot summer day. It would be perfectly refreshing and thirst quenching on the beach or for a sunny summer picnic. I loved that the tea has a blend of actual fruit pieces, instead of relying on flavorings, and the added herbs are minimally detectable, and probably beneficial. I’ll definitely stock up on this tea for the upcoming summer!
