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 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.
