Thumbs up!"This tea is best described as a mix of mint and citrus flavors, with a slightly tart finish. With the exception of the licorice root, I was able to taste how each ingredient brought a special little something to this tea. "

rishitropicaliceRishi's Tropical Crimson Iced Tea comes in large tea sachets intended for brewing one-quart quantities of iced tea. Tropical Crimson is a blend of hibiscus, lemongrass, rosehips, peppermint, licorice root, natural oil of tangerine, and natural passionfruit flavor. The color of this tea is striking, although I wouldn't exactly descibe it as crimson. It's actually more along the lines of a neon magenta/fuschia, and is really quite spectacular. Although this tea contains many ingredients, several of which (e.g. hibiscus, licorice root) can make or break a tea by being too overpowering, the end result is a smooth and refreshing tea that has a well-balanced blend of flavors. Initially, I was a bit hesitant about this tea because I had concerns that hibiscus, being the first ingredient in the list, would be overwhelming. The good news is that while the hibiscus does contribute to the glowing color of this tea and certainly provides a refreshing tartness to the flavor, it is not an overpowering ingredient. This tea is best described as a mix of mint and citrus flavors, with a slightly tart finish. For me, it was the peppermint that made this tea so enjoyable, because it balanced out the lemongrass and tangerine notes so wonderfully, and brought the refreshing quality up a notch. With the exception of the licorice root, with seemed to evade me, I was able to taste how each ingredient brought a special little something to this tea. This is definitely something I can see myself enjoying on a warm summer day, and I think most people would agree that it has a really crisp and clean invigorating quality about it. This tea is caffeine free, meaning that one need not be concerned with over-caffeinating oneself by indulging in second (and likely third) servings of this tasty treat. Rishi has done it again, this time using all natural and organic ingredients to produce a stellar iced tea. Bottoms up!
