Thanks so much to carol who for a sample of this tea! The dry leaf is really pretty, with lots of blue cornflowers and rose petals and raspberry chunks. This tea is a pale peach color when it’s steeped. It smells mostly of rose and hibiscus, with a hint of raspberry. I used a pretty generous amount of leaf, and I steeped it for a little under eight minutes. Then I let it cool, since I usually find herbals to taste better when they’re not too hot.

I have to admit, I don’t usually enjoy hibiscus in herbal teas, so I was pleasantly surprised by how this tasted. I mostly taste the raspberry and the rose, alone with some light tartness from the hibiscus, which actually complements the other flavors. This is how hibiscus should taste in an herbal tea—not so tart that it’s hard to drink, but just strong enough that it adds to blend. Overall, the flavor of this tea is very light, but I’m enjoying it. I wouldn’t have thought to try it on my own, so I’m glad I got the chance to sample it!

This is a nice herbal tea, with a light flavor that captures the essence of a summer garden. It’d be especially great for fans of rose and raspberry, as long as you don’t mind some hibiscus in there!

I’m a writer who drinks tea to survive the creative process. A few years ago, I discovered the joys of loose leaf, and I’ve been hoarding all kinds of tea ever since!

My favorite teas change by the day. I usually drink them unsweetened, without milk. I like white and green teas, but I tend to prefer black and oolong these days. Rooibos can be hit-or-miss, same with herbals. (I mostly avoid blends with hibiscus, as I find it too tart, and I’m not a huge mint fan.) But I love when I find a good herbal that I can enjoy when I don’t want caffeine. I’m actively searching for tasty blends with chamomile in them.

I enjoy both flavored and straight teas. Some of my favorite flavors are vanilla, spice, apple, orange, chocolate, and peach. I’m obsessed with ginger. Seriously. I’ve been known to add extra ginger to teas that already have absurd amounts of spice in them. You’ve been warned. ;)
