This sounded like an odd combination the first time I saw it, but it was included free with the missing portion of one of my orders awhile back. I probably would have been content to let it sit untried awhile longer, but my dad just called and asked me to go through my tea for any Della Terra rooibos blends I could send home with my mom. It seems that he’s fallen in love with a few and wants to try as many as possible. Time to dust this one off before I pass it on to him.

This tea didn’t score any points with me based on scent, the brewed tea smelled like rooibos and orange peels. Not a combination that would appeal to me in the slightest seeing that I don’t care for either, but it did have a subtle scent of cinnamon and pepper which smelled nice.

Taste wise, it was a blend of lemon, orange and rooibos and a little kick at the end from the peppercorn. I wasn’t sure how well the peppercorns would work here, but I really liked that subtle kick at the end. It cut through the bitterness from the orange peel and said here I am. I’m not a huge fan of the bitterness that the orange peels add to the blend, but that is just a personal preference, and it mellows out a bit as the tea starts to cool. I actually don’t think this is a bad tasting blend, it’s just not my type of tea, but I think this one will really appeal to my father.

I ordered the mystery pack from Della Terra with my last order and this was one of the 2oz packs. I was expecting to hate this. Just in case, I added some sweetener to the mix and it actually made it pretty tasty. It reminds me of lemon drops with a tiny bit of kick at the end. I used 2.5 teaspoons in my 16oz steeping mug. I’ll probably wind up sampling the majority of this out but it’s not too bad!

The seemingly odd pairing of lemon with pepper is what caught my eye on this tea. It is a decent lemony tea but I was expecting a bit more pizzazz from the pepper as I could hardly taste it. I think I would have enjoyed it a bit more if the peppercorns had a little bit more bite. The loose leaf looks like white ayurvedic chai by Teavana-quite colorful and beautiful. Overall, not bad if you want a lemon-esque tea just don’t expect too much flavor from the peppercorns.

Couldn’t wrap my head around this one. The flavor combo was just weird.

From the Caffeine-Free/Decaf Traveling Tea Box.

A nice lemon-y rooibos. The dry leaf is wonderfully colorful and pretty. I put a little more water than I intended, but that shouldn’t have prevented the tea from not tasting peppery or spicy. That was a bit disappointing.
