I think I may have over brewed mine, it says 2-4 minutes which it think was about 3 maybe and the colour is a deep redy almost brown colour. However this colour lightened and became more reddy pink when i poured some out and weakened with some good old fashioned tap water.
If overbrewed as I fear I might have, then the flavour is quite pungent and bitter. However the taste did mild down a bit when I added some cold water from the tap. The taste is still quite powdery and is very similar to cranberry in flavour and also in chalky aftertaste.
I know this stuff is supposed to be fantastic for your skin, great for being low in caloiries and also a good method of stress relief but it really doesnt taste all that nice. I feel a bit like when you have to forcefully gulp down lemsip because you know it's good for you and you'll only feel worse if you don't swallow the rancid stuff.

Overall 3 star rating, although are on special, still wouldnt recommend trying unless you are fond of sharp warm drinks. Not really my cup of tea, and if you prefer sweeter teas like myself I can recommend the strawberry or vanillia Sainsburys tea.
Thanks for reading, take care, best wishes, mintz x x x
