Here's the most-rated Tazo product on RateTea, but haven't yet rated here for unknown reasons. So...this is that, since I snagged some at a hotel.

The blend brews up a dense magenta hue quite quickly, presumably from the added elderberry extract ("for color" on the ingredients label). Dry-bag aroma is generically fruity without obviously being any specific fruit, and also, a bit like dry grass or straw. In-cup aroma loses the straw element, keeps unidentifiable fruit scent. The taste is another matter altogether. The tartness slapped me hard on the first sip, and only abated a little thereafter. I don't know if there's enough elderberry in here to add to the flavor, or mute the others, but something is making this taste like no fruit in particular, just potent sour candy.

For the most part, I like strong flavors...except the few I don't! Sourness is one. I'll recommend this to my adult son, who loves SweetTarts, Sour Skittles, Warheads, and other such mouth-puckering confections, and who enjoyed sucking on a raw lemon when he was a baby. Sometimes, sweetening blunts the excess tartness in a fruity, hibiscus- and rose hips-based herbal tea, such as most of the Celestial Seasonings "Zinger" line. Not here. The base flavor seems to be really nice and fruit-punchy; alas, the tartness was offputting enough to me that it was difficult to finish the cup. It's good nobody filmed me drinking this, because I probably had the facial expression of a bloated puffer fish. If you like sour stuff, you'll probably rate this a good bit better.

Deep bloody red with apparent bubbling on the sides. Aroma has rose hips and hibiscus. Taste is incredibly fruity, kick of orange and a nice bite from the hibiscus. Palate has a lingering tropical note on the roof of the mouth, citrusy.

Aroma is very citrus driven with a subtle spice. The flavor is strong in this tea and a single tea bag can support 16 ounces of hot water. I like this tea because it’s almost like having a wild fermented beer with the acid presence. That said, it’s fairly one note.

Smelled like cinnamon, but didn't taste spicy at all - it was mostly tart, which I am not a big fan of. I like fruity teas, but I prefer being able to tell what kind of fruit I'm tasting, not just sort of muddy random fruit flavor. I didn't toss any of what I bought, but I wouldn't buy it again.

This is good iced or hot. It's good mixed with lemonade and/or mixed with Tazo's Wild Sweet Orange. This is one of my favorite herbal teas.

slightly tart, mixed with a pack of sugar. Had it warm but would be good cold too.

People just love this one - but for some reason, I don't. Too floral and ascerbic and weirdly tart for me. But my 9 year old digs it iced - and Starbucks serves it in vast quantities.

I like Tazo's Green and the old-formula "Om" a bit better.

This tea is best served in a Passion Arnold Palmer. Simply, steep for 10 minutes, bring to room temperature, and then mix with lemonade. Add some ice, and mix or shake. Delicious and addicting!!!!
