First of all I want to say that this tea is BEAUTIFUL! Both in color and smell. It brews up a gorgeous reddish pink color. It’s so pretty it makes me wish I had a clear mug to admire it in (specifically the clear perfect glass mug from David’s Tea – the one with the tree on it). I am in love with the smell this tea gives off. It’s very lemony which is awesome for me because I absolutely love lemons! I even like to eat them raw by themselves =)

I think the name African Summer really fits this tea. I’m picturing a red sunset over dry African plains…maybe there’s a zebra lingering somewhere in the distance…

I like that this tea is naturally sweet and tarty. The lemon isn’t too overpowering and neither is the hibiscus. They are in perfect harmony with eachother. I can definitely see myself reaching for some of this on a cold winter day when I need a little warmth. It would also be a great go to during cold/flu season. I think I’m going to have to order some more of this!

I’m really very happy with this tea. I can’t wait to try it iced! Mmmm…fabulous African Summer!! So glad I tried this.

I’m a dog groomer and have been for five years. My job is a lot of things, but it most certainly isn’t boring!

“We rarely pause to acknowledge the impermanent quality of the body. We remember being children and we know our bodies have changed, but it rarely occurs to us that there is not one cell remaining in our body from childhood. The physical matter of the child’s body is gone; only a memory remains. Every cell has been replaced by new cells. But the mind creates the delusion that this is the same body.”
