Thumbs up!"I was afraid this would be another case of one flavor decimating another, but in fact, the two potent ingredients play nicely together, and both seem to be tempered from their usual nature of assaulting the taste buds."

Hari Tea tries to create tisanes and tea blends that evoke specific moods or feelings. With ‘New Sensation’, a blend of hibiscus and mint, they pair two powerfully “refreshing” ingredients in an attempt to evoke those feelings of youth, the excitement of new energies. The allude to the fact that as adults, we spend a lot of time and money to try to create these feelings. Purporting that this simple blend of ingredients can replace the excitement of a new car, or the adrenaline rush of winning a ball game, may be a bit of a stretch. But it can’t be denied that it is indeed refreshing, and even the marriage of the two simple ingredients is likely to be a “new sensation” to most palates.

A full-boil (slightly tempered) brewed up for 4-6 minutes is recommended, and I find the middle of that range to be very nice. The liquor brews up to a rosy pink hue. Aroma is slight, but it hints at a nice, even blend. I was afraid this would be another case of one flavor decimating another, but in fact, the two potent ingredients play nicely together, and both seem to be tempered from their usual nature of assaulting the taste buds. On the other hand, I do wish for a bit more “wow” factor. I don’t doubt these are fresh ingredients, but utilizing a tad more pungent mint might have brought this to another level – particularly when talking about a “new sensation”. That said, this now becomes a very drinkable cup – completely refreshing, and without an annoying overbearingness.

Although I didn’t try this one iced (yet), I suspect it would make a great poolside companion. When imbibed hot, the cool/refreshing notes juxtaposed with the warming sensations create a perfect sense of balanced comfort - always a winning cup to this palate.
