|"It wasn’t buttery and smooth like peach rooibos but I enjoyed the tart, floral hibiscus for a change. This tea isn’t shy of flavor and strength.
When looking at the tea leaves, I guessed that there are dried apples, cranberries and maybe some dried peaches in the mix. I did find that the actual tea leaves are organic hibiscus petals from Egypt. These lovely hibiscus petals are a dark maroon color. Hibiscus is known for it’s tanginess and I thought that would go well with a sweet peach flavor.
I steeped 1 teaspoon of tea in one cup of water for a few minutes. The water instantly began to turn into a light purple-pink color from the maroon petals. It’s one of the prettier tea colors I’ve seen. I inhaled the steam of the tea and smelled peaches. If I didn’t know any better I would’ve assumed that there were dried cranberries in this tea but hibiscus teas often have a cranberry-like flavor. The tea has a very tangy, sweet flavor that many hibiscus teas have. It reminded me of some pomegranate teas I’ve had. It didn’t need any sweetener since it was already sweet. I wouldn’t suggest steeping this tea too long. When I tried to steep it for more than 5 minutes the peach flavor did stand out more but the tea became very sharp and acidic. Hibiscus contains between 15 and 30 percent acids.
Peach Hibiscus Herbal also has some great health benefits. Hibiscus contains lots of vitamin C and minerals. I’ve also read that drinking hibiscus can be the equivalent of taking blood-pressure medicine and is highly recommended for people with diabetes. I’m a fan of peach teas and I really enjoyed 3-Teas Peach Hibiscus. It wasn’t buttery and smooth like peach rooibos but I enjoyed the tart, floral hibiscus for a change. I like that this tea isn’t shy of flavor and strength.
