drank Unbridled Love Fruit Tea by Teavivre
754 tasting notes

I got this a long time ago with my last Teavivre order but was never really interested in trying it. I only got it to bump my order up in order to get free shipping. But then I was reading some reviews on Steepster, and many of them said it tasted like blood orange. Well I love blood oranges and have been disappointed by many teas claiming to mimic blood orange. But I am still willing to try to find one, AND this tea does not claim to be blood orange. So might as well try. After reading the reviews on here, I decided to split up my little sample pack in half for a cold and hot steep.

The dry mix does not smell like much to me, maybe a bit of citrous. Nothing blood orange.

The hot brew is not too bad. Steeped for 4 min at boiling temp. It is a bit tart. I am not getting much blood orange but am getting citrous. Sour orange. A bit of green apple.

The cold brew is SUPER good. I brewed for about 9 hours. It smells like citrous but not blood orange. But the taste – BLOOD ORANGE!!!!! It is not exactly like blood orange but it is pretty close.

This one is definitely going on the shopping list. It is unfortunately not on sale with Teavivres anniversary sale that is going on right now, but I am sure I can tag it on to my next order, which will most likely be happening soon!

Hmm, I was thinking about ordering this one when I put in an order this week for their anniversary sale but then I took it out of my cart. You have changed my mind and I am gonna try a sample now! It sounds so good

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
