Rishi Tea Hibiscus Berry

Rishi Tea lists the ingredients of this herbal blend as including organic rosehips, organic Fair Trade Certified™ hibiscus, organic currants, organic schizandra berries, natural blueberry flavor and essential oils of orange and natural mango flavor. The dry leaves had a pleasantly sweet aroma. 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.

This blend was surprisingly refreshing. It was sweet but not overly so and there was a light salty quality at the end of each sip. It didn’t have that mouth puckering effect that I was expecting. I often find berry teas, especially those containing hibiscus, to be too tart and overpowering. Rishi Tea got this one just right. I could see this making a great iced tea in the summer. I would definitely recommend this tea.
