I was worried that this one would taste like Christmas potpourri. Not worried enough to refrain from trying it, of course, particularly when my local supermarket lets me weigh out wee samples to potentially get hooked on. This is never going to become my favorite rooibos blend, but it’s pleasant… it does remind me of essentially every cinnamon and orange tea I’ve tried before, but sometimes I am in the mood for that. I also think for some reason that this would just be the ideal blend when I’m not feeling well. I’m not sure that’s how RoT would want to advertise this one, per se- “Have a headcold? Do we have the tea for you!” but there’s something very soothing about it, in the same way a hot toddy is soothing. I’m sensing a personal link between citrus, cinnamon, and being soothed while ill, I think.

Grad student in sociocultural anthropology. I drink tea while reading for my courses, and it makes the books go down easier. I genuinely like most kinds of tea – although fruit tisanes kind of scare me.
