Tea of the Day

Hibiscus Flower (Wellcat): 2/5

A very sour tea, by itself. And STRONG. If you have ever had Celestial Seasoning's Raspberry Zinger, this will taste familiar (mostly because Raspberry Zinger is mostly Hibiscus flowers, as are most fruit teas). But stronger. I like my tea stronger than most, and this was strong for me, and I had already put less in the tea ball than usual. So be warned, weak tea drinkers! And its sour. Hint of sweet, but only a hint. Stick to Hibiscus mixed with something- anything really, but if you want to be able to taste the other ingredient, put VERY LITTLE Hibiscus in.

Extra: The earliest credible documented record of tea is chronicled in the Erh Ya, an ancient Chinese dictionary written in 350 a.d.
