Very fruity, amazing colour with a lovely aftertaste.
You know when you smell a fruit tea and it is fantastic and then you taste it and it is insipid? That is not this infusion. It tastes as fruity as it smells. It reminds me of a long defunct London herb and yes company elderberry brew which was equally fruity and I have been missing for years. Because of all the elderberries, hibiscus, redcurrants, and rosehips it is a great choice of your immune system is feeling challenged.
I've never been a lover of tea (I'd never been able to face a cup of 'normal' tea) but recently tried loose fruit tea in a cafe and decided I would buy my own. After plenty of research to find a reasonably priced, great quality tea I came across Tugboat brews and ordered the Red Berry Infusion, Hot Toddy and English Breakfast (in the hopes I might be converted into a tea drinker). My order was shipped about an hour after I placed the order and my parcel arrived within 2 days (very quick considering I'm in NI). The parcel came with a lovely handwritten note inside and a sample of the Bahama Beach green tea. I'm very pleased to say that I have been thoroughly enjoying all of the teas (I have been converted!) and so have all my guests. I will most definitely be buying all of my tea from Tugboat brews in the future and cannot wait to try all of the other flavours I've been eyeing up!
