My all-time favorite tea flavor - PLEASE, PLEASE bring back the filter bag version of this tea - I would have purchased cases of this had I known if was being discontinued - still will.....PLEASE bring the bag version back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This tea is very good. It is nice and sweet, and I really like it. It's perfect with some sugar, and I bet it'd be great iced. Warning: Careful when handling. Tea Forte does NOT take out the thorns. I went to go scoop out the used tea and now I'm bleeding. (To Tea Forte: Really...?? I expected more from you. Not only is this dangerous, but it also waters down the tea. For high-quality tea, I expect no stems.)
We loved the Wild Berry Hibiscus, in its original filter bags form. Since Tea Forte seemed to be discontinuing the filter bags, we decided to try the loose tea. We were sadly disappointed - the recipe has changed, and it is a much more astringent tea. While certainly having much of the original character, the changes have really made it a much less enjoyable cup - we loved it both hot and room temp and cold, previously. Really hoping they either bring back the filter bags, or return the recipe to the original for the loose tea. Thankfully, we still have a few boxes left... :)
