Tea of the Day!

Cranberry and Sanguinello Orange: 3/5

I want to say it smells nice and fruity, but as, it's a fruit tea (and thus not ACTUALLY a 'tea') it mostly just smells like Hibiscus. Why, oh why does everyone have to use Hibiscus flowers as a base? Or rather, why do they have to use so MUCH Hibiscus? You might as well just sell Hibiscus tea and have done with it. Anyway, I was worried, but it's actually pretty good! It may smell of Hibiscus but the citrus taste Really comes through! I really can't recognize cranberry flavor (sorry). It's mostly Hibiscus overlaid with citrus, which is really nice. Very peppy! Will definitely wake you up in the morning. :)

Unfortunately, as an Iced tea, it loses much of the citrus flavoring, which is taken over by the Hibiscus.

Hibiscus, rosehips, apple pieces, natural cranberry flavouring (10%) , natural sanguinello orange flavouring (10%) liquorice root

Extra: In 1700s London, tea was the major beverage served in coffee houses. Exclusively for men, these coffee houses were termed "penny universities." For a penny, a man could buy a pot of tea and a newspaper while engaging in lively conversations with other men who shared his interests.
