Truly Unique in Wilson, NC
$1.50 an ounce
|How I brewed it
Just boiling water over a cotton tea bag filled with 1 tsp of the tea blend, steeped for 10 minutes. I added about a Tbs of honey to a large mug of tea.
Did not rebrew.
This tea is advertised as "a daytime relaxing refreshment to take you from your hectic day." It is caffeine free. It has a strong hibiscus flavor and wonderful, rich hibiscus red color. In addition to the hibiscus, it contains rose petals, chamomile, red clover, ginger, and stevia leaf.
I generally brew herbal teas for 10 minutes to access any root flavors, but this tea did not need that, even with a root ingredient. Since I brewed it strong, I added honey to ease up on the hibiscus' potency.
Overall, it's nice, and the hibiscus is such an under-used ingredient that this is a nice change for your afternoon cuppa.
No second review yet.
