The hibiscus note is very overwhelming, it’s about the only thing that I can truly taste. Its very much on the herbal side, the orange comes in at the end, just very faintly.
Its a bit on the tart side, so I very lightly sweeten the tea further.
“I’m pretty sure that my brain checked out today as it took me at least six times to type ‘orange’ correctly to find this tea. Anyway, this was a sipdown. I didn’t find this...” Read full tasting note

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.
The smell of this is exactly what you’d think it to me. Very strong oranges. At first I didn’t really enjoy the herbal hot very much. But then I tossed in some ice and a touch of sugar and this was a great iced herbal drink! The only way I’d re-buy this is for summer time use of making it iced. Not a bad tea though at all, just personal preference not to drink it hot!
I like how the loose leaf tea reviles all of its bounty. With this one you can see the orange peel, apple, flower petals (rose). This filled the room with an aroma that reminds me of spring or autumn. The cup was a nice red with a sweet taste some what bitter of citrus.
Excellent for children who might not enjoy tea or just don’t want to give them sugar.
