I'm not a huge fan of hibiscus, so it's hard for me to rate this. Compared to tea and most herbal teas, I don't like it much, but that doesn't mean this isn't of good quality.

Cup is an intense opaque red like the color of 100% cranberry juice. Aroma is mostly of cooked fruit, like the intermediate stage in making jams and jellies. Reminiscent of rose hips. I find the aroma slightly unpleasant.

When brewed as recommended, the flavor is very sour, to the point of making it undrinkable. I tried brewing more weakly than recommended: less leaf and for under 4 minutes, and it was still unpleasant and undrinkable.

I find that this drink produces very good results though if used to brew iced tea. Brewed this way, I still like to use less leaf and a very short steeping, only about 1-2 minutes. Then I ice it and make about 2 cups worth with a single teaspoon.
