The old raspberry nectar was discontinued so I got very excited to see that it’s still on the website but repackaged. This tea is completely different. It is not the same. They added licorice root in there and now it is horrible. It used to be my favorite tea and everyone that would come over for holidays would drink it together but now it is really bad. There is an over powering licorice taste and there’s more Apple in it than before. They took out some of the better ingredients. So basically they are selling you cheaper tea for the same price. I am so disappointed and I’m going to be returning the 6 cans that I ordered.
Holy moly, this has a lot of hibiscus! As soon as I saw the liquor was a deep red, I knew immediately that there was a lot of hibiscus in this tisane. I had to add A LOT of agave nectar to the cup to make it drinkable! Once there was enough, I could appreciate the raspberry, apple, blackberry and orange flavours. For it to be enjoyable for me, I'd need to have the hibiscus scaled back. I don't like having to add a lot of sugar to make a tisane palatable for me.
This herbal blend wasn’t what I had expected from the description. I was looking for a fruity herbal tea, and while fresh out of the can this tea smells great I couldn’t work with it after it steeped. The smell hit my nose as I went for a drink, sour notes and I think the licorice turned me off right away. When I took a sip the sour and licorice together were too strong for my taste. But I learned something about my personal preferences, to avoid licorice, so not a total loss. I’m sure plenty of others will enjoy this herbal blend, but I continue on my search.
