|"… sadly the beautiful beverage offers an unremarkable taste.
I steeped one heaping teaspoon of After Dark in eight ounces of water for five minutes. This resulted in an alluring deep rose-colored liquor with the smell of hibiscus. The flavor, also hibiscus, was aided by the chamomile which served to mitigate the sour tang of the often crass red flower.
This tisane has a nice body (which I attribute to the chamomile) and the flavor improves considerably as the tea cools, but sadly the beautiful beverage offers an unremarkable taste. Thirty minutes after the last sip and it’s already difficult to remember the flavor. I’m afraid it tastes too much like a number of other similar products.
I tried making a fresh cup with two teaspoons of tisane and a touch of honey. It made little difference.
