I love teas with hibiscus, but I was a little disappointed with this Bleu. If you make it to match the nice blue color shown, it is too light in taste. If you make it stronger, the citrus tones gives it an off aftertaste. I think iced is probably a better way to experience this tea.
I enjoy this tea most when it is chilled. It has wonderful bright pop to it, and the hibiscus doesn't overpower the other flavors, as opposed to other hibiscus teas I've had. The hue is absolutely a lovely blue-purple color, and is very rich. I like steeping it most in my glass tea kettle, and the kids are totally mesmerized at the color! I'm not usually a big fan of hibiscus teas, but this one is quite enjoyable!
If you think of tea drinking as more than just a beverage and a true experience, than Bleu Hibiscus is the tea for you. Slightly tart but mostly mellow, this tea is intoxicating to drink. The color is a vivid violet and looks beautiful in a clear mug. I slightly prefer the flavor of the Bleu Blossom, but this is my second favorite of Tea Forte’s Bleu options.
I bought the bleu collection trying to find another herbal tea that I like and would purchase in loose leaf. This tasted great in the pyramid tea infuser but tasted a little different in loose form. It is still good! I like it but am looking for something herbal that packs a bit more punch.
