Thanks to Meghann M for this tea.

I like how the apple pieces float at the top while steeping.

I like hibiscus, I like hibiscus and apple. I do not like this tea, there is an odd citrus note in it. I like sour apple candies but this is more layered - lemon then hibiscus then apple as opposed to a solid sour apple flavor.

Rating: 1/4 leaves

Leaf system:
