Recent Tasting Notes
I love blood oranges. I especially love sharing them with people who have never had them before. The comments on the appearance or on the name are priceless, but everyone loves the taste.
This tea has the distinct citrus taste of blood oranges; coupled with the cinnamon, it makes for a crisp, sweet cup that’s perfect for a fall morning.
I just wish it were fall already.
I really love this tea. Good black tea with a sweet peach taste.
I decided to leave some of the loose leaves in my cup today and have a little spontaneous tea-leaf reading. (What you’re doing while sipping the tea really effects the meaning of the reading – like this one focused a bit on the emails I had been typing while drinking the cup.) The overall reading was unexpected, but not surprising after the last couple of years. A pleasant experience, all together.
There is just something about this tea. The smell reminds me of something from my childhood, but for the life of me I can’t remember what. One sip, and I’m transported back to summer days when I would spend all day riding my bike in my neighborhood with no helmet and no worries.
Okay, for the actual review: extremely fruity, with a very strong tangerine taste. Out of the hibiscus teas I’ve had from Republic of Tea (and that’s all except for the Vanilla one and the plain one), this is by far my favorite. I brew for 10 minutes (I like my teas strong).
Tangerine Hibiscus is a World Market exclusive. I’ll happily drive the hour and a little bit to get another tin. In fact, this is my second tin (and that’s not counting the one that’s at my parents’ house). This is also fantastic iced, and is also really good mixed with Country Time lemonade.
Where has this tea been my whole life? I shall never be without it again.
The plantain flavor is perfect: just like a fully ripe, baked plantain. The coconut adds a tropical note. There’s a slight, sweet grassy note at the end of a sip. I plan on getting the plain Raw Green Bush since I’ve never had raw rooibos to compare this to.
I brew for 10 minutes.
