Tasting notes

This tea has a vivid, ruby red colour and a strong, sweet and fruity smell – if you find some fruit teas to be a bit lacking in the flavour department, you should try this blend for a taste bud explosion! The sweetness of the strawberries and hibiscus is tempered by the more tart currants and elderberries, making for a well-rounded and balanced beverage. A natural sweetness is present, meaning that you most likely will not need to add any sugar or additional sweetener. This blend is delicious when hot, and would also make a lovely iced tea! Like most fruit teas, this is best served without milk.
