As part of their Heywood Teas combo set :
Roselle: has diuretic property and detoxify the body, facilitate weight loss, smooth wrinkles and liver health.
Red Date: Nourish blood, improve digestive health and rehydrate skin.
As you can probably already guess the Ingredients for this Tea blend was a Roselle (Taiwan) and Red Date (South Korea).
Upon opening the tea pouch, the overall aroma is very light in its nature. It has a light floral tone with under notes of date.
The aroma whilst brewing has certainly intensified it smells berylicious it has a very Berry smell alongside that of the date.
The brewed aroma is a rich redy pink .
First sip is very intriguing. It packs a real punch with its flavour and intensity. The main flavour at the forefront is that of the date followed by that of a fruity and almost floral tones of the Roselle. Or as some you may be wondering Roselle is actually another name for hibiscus which explains the berry nature and colour to this tea. I sometimes forget that in other languages/translations it may be called a word that you don’t tend to use and your left wandering what it might be.
I’m not sure how I feel about the use of the date within the blend as it’s not something I’d normally chose to eat etc. However it some how just works amongst the flavours.
One thing I do know for sure is how amazing the colour of the brew is and it certainly helps when drinking this tea to keep in sipping! With the added known health benefits from the tea as well it’s a perfect added extra to the sipping experience.
With the flavour intensity of this tea and the colour it would also make the perfect iced blend. Machine drinking an ice cold bright pink tea on a hot summers day !
Happy Sipping 🙂
