I was actually a little surprised at how much I enjoyed this given that there is hibiscus in it … I’m not a fan of the hibiscus. But, it’s done lightly enough so that it doesn’t overpower the cup, and actually it accentuates the elderberries in a really favorable way.
Not bad, everything is nicely balanced. This tisane has a lot going “against” it for me … given that it’s not only a rooibos blend but also a hibiscus blend … but I still quite enjoyed it given all these components … I expected I’d hate it. But I didn’t. So, Kudos to Whispering Pines! Well Done!
