Great iced tea or blended with rooibos
Ellery – MA – May 17, 2018

This makes a great herbal iced tea, either by itself. You can blend it 50/50 with rooibos as well and that makes a very good tea hot or iced. I find that served hot its a bit too tannic on its own.

Favorite for iced

We love this for a caffeine-free iced tea. We sun-brew it by the half-gallon. Great tart taste and color. We often make it half and half with a black tea, or with a hint of mint.

Not a fan

I bought this because the Raspberry Fruit Tea that I love was out of stock however I really dislike the smell - it reminds me of cough syrup. I can't drink it although the taste is fine if I could get past the smell. I'm checking back every week for the restock of the other tea to order.

This was a gift- I may not have tried it, but oooh--it's so yummy. It's tart, it's sweet- so many fruit things happening in your mouth. Thanks Hannah!

One of My Absolute Faves

I love the bright, tart flavor and the *gorgeous* ruby red color of this one. And it's good hot or iced, with maybe just a little sugar, depending on your tastes.
