Made with only four ingredients, TK Hibiscus’ Cool Mint Hibiscus Tea is one of those atypical beverages that manages to deliver big flavor without needing to add a ton of flavorings and sugar. At 40 calories per bottle (20 per 8 oz. serving), the product is clean and refreshing, with hibiscus, spearmint and agave proving all of the flavor (the fourth ingredient is water). Unlike many other hibiscus-based beverages that overwhelm you with hibiscus to the point where it starts to taste overly tannic, this product has found the perfect balance between the hibiscus, the mint, and the touch of sweetness that rounds it out. That said, the flavors work together rather than against one another. It’s enjoyable and full-bodied, but light and refreshing at the same time. As far as hibiscus teas are concerned, we’d be hard pressed to pick another over Cool Mint Hibiscus Tea. The product’s presentation, which starts with a stock 16 oz. glass bottle that’s synonymous with ready-to-drink tea, looks modern and polished. We always love the approach of using a one color design and TK has pretty much nailed it. The branding is approachable and easy to understand, while the flavor name also serves as an accurate descriptor of what’s inside the bottle. Overall, this is a solid product and our favorite variety of the TK Hibiscus lineup.
