This is definitely cold steeped. Its very refreshing on a hot summer day.

Today was apparently the day to dig up the oldest teas in my collection and give them a taste.
This was one of my favorites for evening when I first got it. It’s tangy and full of flavor and I really do still like it. It’s funny to me that I like this one though given the fact that it does have a lot of strong hibiscus notes in it… which I usually don’t care for at all.
I taste the orange notes pretty strongly and then the hibiscus kicks in and lingers. Definitely not an every night tea, but something I do enjoy every now and then.
It’s safe to safe that I am probably not a fruity tea drinker. I didn’t think I would be and after trying this it was confirmed. Like it’s namesake it had a very orangey smell as well as taste. It was far too sweet. About the only thing I did like was the color it gave off.
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.
