Like many other Lupicia teas I have tried, the scent is strong with this one. The dry rooibos smells like orange juice, really. Fresh squeezed. There are even cute little sugar crystals in the tea, just like their Momoko.

It steeps up to a orange-brown and loses some of that orange aroma, but the fruit still shows up in the taste. I didn’t try adding any extra sugar since there was sugar in the tea already, and I found it sweet enough. This rooibos feels like more of a dessert tea to me. There’s this hint of orange liquer in the taste.

I’d recommend staying under 5 minutes for this one and making hot-then-chilled iced tea. When I let it sit longer or tried cold-brewing it, the rooibos got a bit woodsy for my tastes, even though it was still drinkable.

Bio

I’ve just recently discovered the world of loose tea and am really enjoying myself. I’m still in SAMPLE EVERYTHING mode, and likely always will be.

I love green teas, chai, and citrus flavors. I don’t mind hibiscus. I will drink a bitter green tea, but won’t drink bitter black tea. I’m working on figuring out which black teas work for me.

I tend to drink my tea without milk or sugar.

I’m using Steepster’s Cupboard function to actually reflect my current tea stock, otherwise I’d never be able to remember what I already have.
