Rishi Tea lists the ingredients of this botanical blend as including organic ginger, organic Fair Trade Certified™ hibiscus, organic schizandra berries, organic licorice root, organic rosehips, organic orange peel and natural essential oils of orange and tangerine. I made this tea in my Breville One-Touch Tea Maker with 212 degree water for five minutes. The liquor was a deep red color.
I was a bit hesitant to try this selection because I have had some bad experiences with ginger and licorice in the past. The aroma of the tea is dominated by ginger but the taste is thankfully quite a bit sweeter. It was fruity but not overpoweringly so. There was a slight dryness to the end of each sip. If you love citrus teas this would be right up your ally. I would definitely recommend this tea.
