I know I’m not the BEST person to blog about a tea called Hibiscus Twist. That’s because I’m not the biggest fan of the flower. But when I read the other ingredients of this herbal offering from The Cozy Leaf – I thought I would give it a whirl.
Officially described on The Cozy Leaf website as an Artisan Loose Leaf Herbal Tea (Caffeine Free) – Organic – offering – the flavor of this is tangy-tart and fruity with a delicate touch of spearmint. I will not tell a lie…the spearmint is what drew me in.
As the loose contents steeps a beautiful crimson color fills the cup!
I do prefer this offering ICED over the hot cuppa option but each person is different and this is one of those herbals that can easily please the masses!
Here’s the scoop!

A tangy tart herbal blend that is sure to add a smile to your tea time and has been bringing a healthy smile to my face since May of 2010! This brews a beautiful crimson cup that is excellent hot or cold! One of my favorite summertime treats is to add some lemonade or fresh berries to a delicious brew of Iced Hibiscus Twist (excellent paired with blackberries and fresh spearmint)! Another easy treat is to make an extra strong brew and freeze the concentrate in ice cube trays. Then pop the frozen crimson ice cubes into fresh made lemonade! The crowd goes wild!! This is also a fabulous tea to have premade in the refrigerator for the unexpected guests. Nothing like having a premium and healthy beverage right at your fingertips to leave an impression!

This is just about the perfect herbal tea for me. Sweet and tart with hints of a grassy touch.
Brewed up hot (212F-1c water-5 min steeping) I really didn’t care for this one. The hibiscus was incredibly strong and the taste reminded me of unsweetened kool-aid. Where my heart lays with this tea is when this tea is on ice.
When iced, this tea takes on a completely different taste. The hibiscus is still there but there is now a sweetness that is combating the tart, making the tea just delicious. Refreshing is the word that comes to mind.
I love teas like this. The flavors are bright, crisp, and they make you think of summer. This tea is even a bit better than your normal herbal because there is this amazing grassy flavor coming in. Yum!
I love Brew Mama Herbalism’s Teas. Angie does such a great job. Not one herbal note takes over the other. Just the right touch. Kudos Angie!
