A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Herevana – Alice – HIBISCUS, ROSEHIP & APPLE 

That’s correct, sometimes it’s not all about beer, sometimes it’s new things. This time it’s about Alice Hard Brewed Tea – The one with HIBISCUS, ROSEHIP & APPLE 

A 330ml bottle of alcohol Tea at 5% – making this 1.3 standard drinks in NZ. Alice is a Premium Tea Brewing company based in beautiful Pokeno – just south of the Bombay Hills.

The third of the Four that are available, I’ve enjoyed the other two, and so I expect to enjoy this.

You can smell the Hibiscus, a you can see the rosehip in the lovely delicate pink fix drink that pours.

I might go in reverse, this finishes with an unexpected dryness. Initially there’s a lot of fizzy that mutes the taste, then there is a pop-pop-pop of fruitiness and sweet things. Then that dryness.

The dryness that sit there. I think for me that this is too delicate for the amount of carbonation. I’ve got this feeling that if I added some lemon or lime slices and that sort of think you see in a pimms that this would really take off and be the afternoon refresher that I wanted it to be.

But I didn’t do that and I still have a glass of what really is quite refreshing, but delicate, drinking.

Perhaps I should ask them to make me an Earl Grey version. Imagine that alongside a Gunamatta.

The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 7 on the arbitrary scale. I really that that this could be something, and having avoided seltzers I think that I discovered something really neat. The problem is that it really isn’t that compelling, or compelling enough. I understand the cleverness of hard-brewing tea. I don’t understand how that works when you top load it with a bunch of flavours.

Herevana beers are those I drink at home, I’m not at some beer festival, like, for instance, Beervana, but am just in my kitchen, usually, dining room table, sometimes, or outside, occasionally, where I can take an average picture and write in real time about the beer that I’ve invested in, both in a monetary and emotional way.
