This is my first tea from the Steepster Traveling Tea Box!

This was the first interesting herbal I came across while unpacking the box and decided that I needed to be trying a tea as I selected my new teas.

I was expecting much more strawberry and kiwi and less hibiscus based on the name, luckily I like hibiscus because the tea was a hibiscus tea with strawberry and citrus flavors. I didn't really get the kiwi flavor, but I am also recovering from a head cold.

Post-Steep Additives: none

Resteep: weaker, less sour, but still a strong hibiscus and berry tea, I won't try another steep though.

Rating: 2/3
