Orange and rooibos, sounds like a great mix, however this isn’t as orange as you might think based on how it smells as you are putting it into whatever teaware you use to steep it. The smell is almost 100% orange, however once it has steeped and you get it in your cup, the rooibos comes out to play.

This was my after superbowl drink actually, basically something to calm me down after the big game. Having had it before I knew what to expect, a big orange nose until it falls into my cup, then it is almost all rooibos with a hint of orange overtone. Basically what you have is a woody rooibos symphony and just a hint of orange harmony, exactly backwards what you would think from smelling it before you brew it.

Which just so happens to be how I like it. So if you like rooibos drink this tea, if you are looking for a tea dominated by the orange go somewhere else this one is not for you.

Nose is rooibos wood with just a hint of orange after steeping. Taste is almost all rooibos with just a layered hint of fruit. Which fruit you ask? You aren’t asking you know which one! I prepared this with two teaspoon fulls of “leaf” and 2 cups of water, steeped it and put it in one of my favorite big mugs.

Hope you all have a good evening. Maybe my next tea shipment will come tomorrow… until then!

Bio

A man, not a myth or legend. Inspired equally by Muir and Merlin (hence the exotic spelling of the welsh latter). I’ve been drinking tea for many years now, but got pushed into loose leaf by observing my co-workers and realizing that there might be something more here than just boiling water and a tea bag. I’m glad they gave me a push… It has been fun so far!
