Little Berry Hibiscus Justea

I am a big fan of this new tea company I discovered- Justea!  I am making their loose leaf tea at work.
A fair trade tea from Kenya Africa  With each tin you get a great hand carved spoon.





I purchased their Little Berry Hibiscus.  I was expecting an herbal tea, but when I looked closer I saw it had rooibos in it.  I was really nervous the first time I tried it, since I typically do not  like hibiscus.   But, there were enough other things going on in this tea that rooibos was not front and center.  I could taste it, but it was not over whelming.

I took it to work and everyone who tried it liked it too!!!  Turning my office into a bunch of tea drinkers!

-side note, I made this tea at my home tea party, and not many people liked it. One or two people said it tasted like cough syrup. I did not have that experience, but as you may be learning everyone has different taste buds.  If you try the tea twice and you are not a fan, don't toss it, you may find a friend who loves it.
