I’m really liking what Republic of Tea has been doing lately with their new creations and flavor combinations. When I first saw this one on their website, I knew I had to try it. Turns out, everyone else did, too, and I had a hard time finding it in my town. Thank you, Liquor Barn, for your great selection of teas.

This rooibos is sweet (I’m assuming from the beetroot), but it mainly tastes like carrot. There’s a slight orange taste, as though you had cooked carrots with a bit of orange juice in the water. There’s a mild, grassy, rooibos flavor finish. I find that I like the Mango Chili and Plantain Coconut better than this blend, but don’t regret the purchase at all. I’m finding that I’m really enjoying teas made out of the more unusual ingredients here lately. Will have to keep an eye out for more of them.

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
