Sipdown, 132. Got a free sample of this with my latest Teavana order.
Of course pre-blended with a pile of rock sugar, but then again this tea has hibiscus and rosehips in it so I figured the sugar might be welcome. This smells strangely exactly like the powdered hot apple cider mixes that my mom used to drink in the ’90s. Actually she would sometimes mix them with Tang (yes, it is an odd blend), which totally matches with the orange flavoring here.
And yes, this taste pretty much exactly like that, especially when she would mix them a bit weaker. Fruity, tart, appley, citrusy, with little else to it. It’s not bad, and I enjoyed my pot of it, but it is certainly not very exciting as a tea. They could take the tea out of it and market it as an herbal blend (and I do like some of their herbals), but then they couldn’t tout the “health benefits” of white tea.
