Today’s Tea: The Republic of Tea, Hibiscus Watermelon

This tea is fabulous! And I don’t say that lightly. I am sooooooo picky when it comes to herbal or flora teas: they really have to knock my socks off.

As the tea steeped the scent of fresh melon hits you, not like it knocks you down, but it is very present. Then the water starts to take on of red tinted swirls, and that is when the apples chime in along with the blackberry.

Add a bit of sparkling apple to this and you are set! I highly recommend this Hibiscus tea and cannot wait to try the others that The Republic of Tea offers.
