drank Blood Orange by Zen Tea
464 tasting notes

I received this as a sample with my last ZenTeaLife order. Blood oranges are one of my favorite fruits. I’m also big fan of citrus flavors in tea, so I have high hopes for this one.

Mmmm. I really like this. Plenty of orange flavor, but not so much that it hides the base tea. I wouldn’t swear that this is blood orange, but it does leave a nice tang on the tongue in much the same way orange juice does. I added some sugar and milk which turned this into a wonderful orange creamsicle treat. So good!

Oh yeah, I’ll definitely enjoy the rest of this sample, and it’s more than possible that I’ll add this to my next ZenTeaLife order. Which will be the next time they have a sale (sssh, don’t tell my husband!).

Bio

I have always been curious about tea, but I didn’t give in to a full fledged obsession until 2010. I’ve enjoyed every new discovery, and my garden has loved the mini mountain of tea leaves that’s been added to the soil! Some of my favorite tea companies are:

- Whispering Pines Tea Company
- Zen Tea Life
- Harney and Sons
- 52 Teas
- Teavivre

While drinking tea I enjoy indulging in my other passions which include reading (the classics and mysteries), music, gardening, and crochet. I have a small business called the Leaf Street Thread Company, and I’m excited to have many of my handmade items sold at stores in the Philadelphia area.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
