BEST TEA EVER
August 08, 2014
This is without a doubt, my absolute favorite TRoT blend I've ever had, and I've been a customer for over 20 years!! It is so delicious- the flavor is so rich and surprising- the color is gorgeous. My children love it as well. We brew a pitcher every week!

Very refreshing! Even my 11-year-old nephew, who normally requires sugared drinks, is sold on it.

I just found my ice tea for the summer.
I love ice tea and this one is so refreshing . The flavors are combined so well.
My new second favorite!

But it's a VERY close second! Have always loved the Ginger Peach (iced), but this is fast becoming my go-to tea. I agree with the others: PLEASE sell it in bulk!

This is a new favorite. It's very berry and light.
I never need wine again

We recently tried this tea and we are hooked. It is delicious and fruity and works great as an iced tea so we love to make pitchers to drink from on the weekend. I do brew it a bit longer than the directions say to get a bit of a stronger brew but that's just our preference. Republic of Tea, please sell this in bulk on the site!
The BEST tea ever

This tea is sooooooo good. I make it by two gallons at a time. It's delicious plain or with a little lemon and Stevia.

Beautiful to look at and great-tasting! Very thirst-quenching.
Hisbiscus Sangria Weak?
September 03, 2013
I made my first pot using 2 quarts of water and and 2 bags and let it brew for 5-7 minutes. I found it to be weak and added a little sweetner. Next time I will add 3 bag or let it steep longer.
August 08, 2013
OMG..the best...I added Limeade Frozen Concentrate with a cup and 1/2 of Sugar. It was so Refreshing over Ice!!

This was my first iced tea from Republic of Tea and I was not so impressed. I still like this tea, but I was just not blown away by it. I felt like the taste is a little weak, I steeped it for longer than usual because I like a strong iced tea and I don't want my ice to dilute to much of it's flavor. it's just okay, but probably will not be repurchasing it.

The first time I made this, I used my ice tea maker. Big mistake, it was weak and just not very good.
Second time, I used my tea kettle to make 2 quarts of it. Since the first bag was steeping while the tea kettle was warming up the second quart it had quite a bold flavor.
This is the first hibiscus tea that I have tried and I'm quite impressed. Though I wish it was sold in larger quantities. I would very much like to purchase a large bag of these instead of a small container of 8.
Not the Same as the old Hibiscus sangria

I use to love, and I do me LOVE the iced tea Hibiscus Sangria in the silk pouch from last year. Recently they have changed from 5 silk bags to 8 paper tea bags. Sadly it is not the same mix nor does it taste as good. The old Sangria was a beautiful red and very flavorful. Now it is a dingy brownish red and is lack luster in flavor. Please bring back the old tea!!!
The most refreshing summer drink ever
July 03, 2013
Other than Water, this tea is my hands down favorite for rehydrating in the summer. Light, sweet, tart, and just tastes like summer all round. I also use it and the other hibiscus teas in flavoring my home brewed tibicos. You have to give this fantastic stuff a try. Without any sweetener added at all, it is like punch or koolaid, only a hundred times better.
Such a pretty tea

This is a very refreshing tea and so much fun to drink because the color is so pretty. I do jazz it up with fruit to give it more flavor. Sometimes I give it a spot of sparkling water or white wine with a lime twist for an iced tea cocktail.
Ok but weak flavor
June 27, 2013
The color is nice but the flavor is a bit weak. I used an extra bag and let it steep longer and it was ok but a bit sharp. I like it well enough to keep experimenting though.

This one was new to me It has a wonderful taste and it is so pretty. It is one I can sip all day.

good fruit taste. all natural. please keep it all natural
May 26, 2013
I do not like this tea at all. The blend changed this year. I think the previous blend of Sangria tea was much better. Please go back to the previous blend.
Beautiful but weak
May 17, 2013
Loved the flavors that come through in this tea but it is a bit weak for my taste. It worked wonderfully when augmented with other fruity teas. The color is beautiful and I may order again.
May 14, 2013
I've made two different pitchers of this tea and both times they've had next to no flavor. The color is pretty but that's about it. Maybe the others didn't notice because they added extra stuff but tea should be good on it's own without extra sweeteners.
May 08, 2013
The fruity flavor of this tea really stands out. Great for the family.The strong color also makes drinking it quite fun, and it smells amazing!
Best Summer Sip
May 08, 2013
My family and friends LOVE this tea. We brew it and add some honey and then mix it with 2 parts "tea" to 1 part apple juice! It's our favorite summer sip!
Delicious and Beautiful
March 17, 2013
This tea is so delicious! And such a gorgeous color, too. I made a huge amount for my daughter's baby shower last summer, and put it in a large glass pitchers with citrus fruits cut up - a recipe, I believe from Republic of Tea. We poured it into mason jars, with a slice of orange, and vintage pink, paper, stripped straws. I wish I could enclose a photo! The flavor is so fruity - and tart too, so benefits from your sweetener of choice. LOVE THIS TEA!
