teasetcraspberryroseWith my husband home sick with a rather sore throat, I wanted to brew up something that we could share. Teas Etc’s Raspberry Rose Petal looked interesting and the fact that it has vitamin C didn’t hurt. The ingredients listed are hibiscus flowers, lemon peel, red rose petals, rose hips, apple pieces and flavor. Looking at this tisane, I just wanted to grab a handful and start munching on it. It is loaded with good sized pieces of apples and deep red flower petals. This is one pretty mixture with a citrusy scent mixed with the sweetness of the rose petals and the bite of apple.

I used 2 teaspoons of tea for my 14 ounce mug, poured boiling water over the top and let it all steep for 4 ½ minutes. As it brewed, the aroma of hot apple cider wafted from my mug which made waiting for my timer to go off even more difficult. The color once brewed of this tisane did surprise me in that it is the color of apple cider. With the hibiscus, I would have expected it to at least lean towards a red. The taste itself, almost that of a hot cider, is perfect for a fall evening. Needless to say, the taste of the apples comes thru strongly. For those who don’t care for hibiscus, there is no reason to avoid this blend as that flavor doesn’t come thru on its own. Instead it adds an interesting twist to the apple flavor.

Teas Etc’s website does state that this tisane is really popular as an iced tea however I really prefer it hot and steaming. Though that might have to do with the weather, I might change my mind come June. This is one tea that I would pick up to enjoy again especially as my coffee loving husband is really grooving on the taste.
