This is good hot, But I like it better iced. It’s a little strong and tangy and so melted ice dilutes it quite nicely.

Fruit Sangrea was my favorite herbal that I had bought fron Adagio before, but I grabbed a sample of Blood Orange with an order of pumpkin spice and I was really impressed by it. It’s got a very nice tang that finishes off with a bit of sweetness. It smells wonderful, too! I only steeped it for five minutes, at first, but 7+ is best, I think. I’m not sure what temperature would be best- I’ve only use boiling water with it so far, but it’s turned out just fine. Overall I really like it.
I got it as a sample when I ordered another set of tea from Adagio. Mostly because I love blood oranges. It smells utterly delicious and I was really excited to try it. It says steep anywhere between 5-10 minutes, so I let it have its way as I cleaned a bit.
It’s a bit too sour for my tastes (that rose hip is super strong), but I just had it straight up and put in a lot of tea for one cup. Might be adding some of my raw sugar to it on a second go-around, and will try it iced another time.
Glad it was just a sample. I would rather lick my dog’s foot than put this in my mouth. In fact I can say the same about the sour apple in the same pack… I’m not brave enough to try the rasberry patch since it smells like cough drops. If you like really icky candy type fruit go for it. If not than don’t waste your money.
It looked beautiful. It smelled amazing while dry. I steeped it for the suggested time of 10 minutes. After steeping, the colour was amazing but the drink itself smelled vaguely of bruised or rotting oranges. The hibiscus did very little except colour it. The rosehips overwhelmed while the oranges underwhelmed. Generic orange flavors with none of berry notes of good moro blood oranges. Highly disappointing as a tea, but I think I can use it for another culinary application. I’m planning to hydrate, candy, and then chop the dry tea and add it to the dough of a rich butter cookie, which I think will be a lovely way to redeem the rest of this sample.
