Tart and sage o’r come
The sweet, juicy liquid pie—
Sugar the diff’rence

This was one of the teas randomly given to me by a fellow steampunk club-goer. I was surprised to find that it was a little pouch of loose leaf! Dry, it smells very herby-the sage really comes out with a kind of fruity backnote. I lost track of time (of course, I’m at work) and steeped it a minute or so over the suggested 5. The liquor was a dark red—note the hibiscus is second on the ingredients list.

I found this tea to be tartly unpleasant, so I added some brown sugar. BAM! That kicked this tea up so many notches. Now the predominant taste is that of a crustless blueberry pie, very juicy and very worth drinking again.

I am terribly naive when it comes to wines, and thus cannot speak to the merlot-yness of this tea.

Flavors: Blueberry, Hibiscus, Sage, Sweet, Tart
