I went to my local tea shop to stock up on one tea. And of course I started browsing and smelling everything (there were new teas out). I found a blood orange fruit/herbal tea that smelled amazing so of course I caved and bought some. I was discussing my love of blood oranges with the owner and she suggested her blood orange rooibos. I was hesitant because rooibos is hit and miss for me, mostly miss. So she generously gave me a sample just to try the tea (3 TABLEspoons!!).

On first smell the dry tea does smells like rooibos and blood orange. When the hot water first hit the tea, it smelled exactly like an orange creamsicle. After steeping, there was a very strong metallic rooibos smell, the kind that I would prefer to miss. But there was also a slight creamy orange smell.

At the beginning of the sip, the brewed tea tastes like straight rooibos. Mid sip there is a kind of creamy orange creamiscle taste. There is a slight tartness in the aftertaste. I would not describe this one as blood orange but there is certainly an orange flavor to it, but it’s mostly rooibos.

Very appreciative of the free sample but I don’t think I will be purchasing this in the future.
