When I searched iHerb for
hibiscus rose hips tea organic
this tea came up, because it has exactly one organic ingredient: Stevia
I should have read more carefully.
Anyway, I carelessly ordered some along with the all-organic Hampstead Rosehip Hibiscus tea that I usually buy. I was a little upset when it arrived and I saw that I'd made a mistake.
One might ask why they would bother to use exactly one organic ingredient which is the tiniest fraction of their product. I mean, the idea behind organic is to keep bad stuff out, and you can't really do that if only a miniscule fraction of your product is organic. Stevia has no insect pests, so it's not as if there was some major pesticide problem with stevia that they were trying to avoid by making only that organic.
Still, the error was mine, not theirs. Hopefully, this review will prevent someone else from making the same mistake.
The tea appears to be of good quality, but there is an aftertaste which I don't like, which probably is due to the stevia sweetener. It is not worth shipping back, but we do plan to donate this tea to a food bank, and will not be drinking any more of it.
Another, more minor, issue is that the strings of each bag arrive curled up inside the tea bag. You have to gently pull out the string, and then pull the other end of the string (which is also attached inside the bag) completely out to release the cardboard tag with which you hold and dip the teabag. This is no more than a minor nuisance, but it takes a little time.

This tastes great hot or cold. This has helped me lower my blood pressure and keep it under control.

A beautiful flavor - light, refreshing, clean, perfect. And 24 tea bags per box is a great deal. Will definitely buy again. And again!

Nice and fresh flavour. The balance of the herbs and hibiscus is good.
