Hey there Teacups! It’s time for another Let’s Talk Tea post this time around I’m going to be reviewing Two Sisters Teas – Hibiscus with Pineapple blend. You all know from my past two past featuring tisanes from Two Sisters Tea that I have surprisingly loved everything I’ve tried so far. I say surprisingly because you all know what my opinions on hibiscus used to be, but Two Sisters Tea have been the best steeping stones on my journey to loving Hibiscus and have pretty much single handily changed every opinion I have ever had on it. A few months ago I never would have tried a tisane in which Hibiscus was the main ingredient but now I just at the chance to try them and ever since the package they very kindly sent arrived I’ve been looking forward to try the pineapple one the most because I loved pineapple and I wish that there were more teas and tisanes out there that used it.
Floral – Very Sweet – Fruity The Aroma of this tisane was quite different to the last two that I’ve tried in that the hibiscus and pineapple were evenly balanced and neither overpowered the other in the aroma. The last one I tried which was Hibiscus with cinnamon the hibiscus overpowered the cinnamon in the aroma but that wasn’t the case with the one. It was much lighter had a delicious fruity note and smelt like it was going to be much sweeter than the last two that I have tried.
Tisanes Tasting Notes
So not only was tisane my favourite aroma wise so far but it is by far my favourite taste wise too it is just as well balanced as I thought it would be and the Hibiscus and pineapple paired beautifully together and I think the pineapple actually helped to calm down the hibiscus flavour wise as it seem to completely cancel out the harsh tart bite that hibiscus can sometimes have and it made it much less acidic. Normally I can only have a little bit of any Hibiscus drink at a time because the acidity and tartness normally ends up giving me heartburn but I didn’t have that this time around which was a very welcome break. The floral note also helped to make this much more of pleasure to drink and added yet another level to its flavour profile. I tried this one both hot and cold brewed and unlike the first two this one works both wise but much more of the pineapple note come out when cold brewed. It’s naturally quite sweet and I didn’t have to had any sweetness to it at all which surprised me because I’ve had to add honey to the last two tisanes that I’ve tried to balance everything out but because this one was so well balanced that wasn’t the case and it was sweet enough (even for my sweet tooth). As I always say though everyone is different, and I would say try it yourself before you decide. When I re-order more of these once they start shipping to the UK I think that this will be the one that I go to before anything else. I’m quite sad that I don’t have more of these now because it’s so hot in the UK right now and it’s so refreshing and cooling when cold brewed.
Overall Teacup Rating: 5/5
