Roses are red, berries are blue, this tea from Kipers Lil Tea Shop is delicious, and good for you too!
Not too long ago, I discovered Kipers Lil Tea Shop on Etsy and I have just been enamored with these hand blended beauties. This go around, I devoured their Roses are Red and Berries are Blue blend.
This particular hand blended treat is a blend of Dao Ren Green Tea, rosehips, hibiscus, elderberry, and bilberries. To start off with, this tea is just stunning with rich tones of pinks, purples, and greens.
Brewed up with water prepped right under boiling and allowed to steep for 4 minutes and cooled for three, this tea provides a sweet yet vegetal note in each sip. The beginning of the sip you are greeted with the familiar green tea tones from the Dao Ren Green Tea. Towards the middle, you start to get the tart hibiscus, while the end note is a different kind of tartness- almost a sweet tart tone.
What I loved most was how each flavor could be identified and each ingredient had their own moment in the spotlight. No one flavor overwhelmed the other and each sip and this awesome transition from vegetal to tart to tart with a sweet finish.
An incredibly well balanced berry tea that gives you the best of both worlds. . .all the green tea loving you can take garnished with the tart hibiscus and tart yet sweet berries. Oh I’m in love!
