Friday is Black Tea, Floral Tea, Fruit Tea, Chai and Pu’erh Review Day!
Even though this tea is a Rooibos… I really consider it more of a fruit tea. Stash provided me bagged samples of their new Chanakara brand teas designed to target each of your seven primary chakras.

This tea was bagged, so it’s harder to jusge the colors, sizes of leaves and ingredients you can see, not to mention the vivaciousness of the aroma is more subdued before brewing. However, from what I could tell the bag was a little less than 1/3 filled and deffinitely with dust or fanning grade particles not as condusive to brewing a flavorful beverage.
This tea brews to a rather pretty honeyed amber-red. It really looks very good in a mug.
The aroma hints of hibiscus and raspberry but is extremely subtle. I really had to nose in to get the flavors from the smell.
Speaking of flavors… this tea tastes of dried strawberries, hibiscus blossoms, light raspberry and citrus flavors are also present.
This tea has a very light but protracted tail, creating a longing for more… like a soft sensual touch.
I wouldrecommend this tea to anyone who is a fan of fruity teas. You may want to brew it longer than recommended for more flavorful results.
