Thank you for the sample SoccerMom!
I love hibiscus, but if you've been following my posts long you know this.
DELICIOUS, but all the other flavors get stomped, that is the one thing holding this back from greatness. If the spice was more prominent, or other flavors also strongly present with the hibiscus I would be in love with the lover's kiss.
I will take this as is though. I think if I had more I'd try some honey or sugar or perhaps try it iced.
Resteep: oh woe is me little tea, at 7 minutes you were a very pretty pink, but watery drink
