I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. I’m not wild about hibiscus. However, I do often find hibiscus-y blends that are quite tasty. This Cherry Cosmo is one such example.
The hibiscus here not only gives the cup some much needed texture, but together with the apple, it provides a good background flavor for the sweet fruit notes. The cherry really pops in this blend, and I think that is due in part to the tart hibiscus flavor.
The sip starts out with a sweet-tart cherry taste, reminding me a bit of a cherry sour ball. About mid-sip, I begin to notice the background notes of hibiscus and apple, and the softer raspberry flavor weaves its way into the sip right at the finish. The finish is tart with a nice sweet fruit flavor lingering in the aftertaste.
Overall, this is a tasty tisane. I like that it’s a little sweet, and not too tart. I like it hot or cold. And because it’s naturally caffeine free, it is a refreshing, relaxing tea that can be enjoyed any time of the day.
