Review of Wild Berries

10 of 104 of 54 of 585 of 100
OutstandingGoodGood Value

Ingredients: hibiscus, rosehip, blackberry, raspberry, salka, lemon, black currant, raspberry and wildberries flavors.

Overall: If you like strong tart or sour flavors this is a good choice. If you prefer something more delicate then probably avoid because it's very easy to oversteep.

Aroma: Dry tea has a strong, mouth-puckering tart berry smell; aroma in the cup is similar but not as loud.

Flavor: I normally dislike hibiscus-based teas, the flavor always seems to overwhelm everything else in there. (Which is unfortunate because it seems to be the base a lot of fruit tisanes.) In this particular case the blend works, though -- the tart hibiscus pairs with the raspberry and blackberry to make something that can range from sweet to mouth puckering depending on how long you steep it. I do have to be in the right mood for this one though.

Sugar and milk can make it a more dessert-like tea.

Other personal notes:
- Long steep? Definitely no.
- Worth trying as an iced tea (I've let enough mugs go cold sitting by the computer...)

Availability: Received as part of a gift box but Wissotzky seems to be available in grocery stores, so start there.

Wow, I see you've been signed up for the site for years but only more recently decided to post two reviews! Apologies for taking so long to get to it in the queue and approve your account! I hope you enjoy the site!

It's funny, I normally don't like hibiscus teas either but over the past year I got sick with COVID-19 (no fun, 0/10 would not recommend) and when I was sick I found I came to enjoy hibiscus tea a lot more. It turns out it can act as an ACE inhibitor which may explain why. Now that I'm feeling mostly better, I've gone back to feeling a bit more ambivalent on hibiscus.
