YES! This makes more sense when iced/cold. It’s still not my fave but it’s much better cold. See previous notes!

Epitea is SHADY, they remove comments about their teas from facebook if they don’t agree with, thats kinda kills the honest feedback if ya ask me, oh well the teas they sent me were NOT that good at all. negative feedback is still feedback.

They did discontinue this one because it was generally not liked.

Tommy the Toad

yeah i saw that, good decision on their part. I just chose the last one in my tealog to share what happened on facebook yesterday, I posted to their facebook about something different and they removed my comment not once but twice thats kinda shady to me, i didn’t even say anything bad i just said “wasnt very tasty” oh well, i think negative feedback is just as important as positive feedback but i guess thet don’t want facebook knowing that somebody didn’t like their teas lol

RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas

Wow, that’s not cool

Tommy the Toad

sadly that kind of thing happens a lot on facebook tho

KeenTeaThyme

That’s horrid! I’m more a consumer of tea but I do blend my own. I would want to know if my blend was gross. Yes tasting palettes differ but if a bunch of people say my blend tastes like butt, I’d want to know!

LiberTEAS

What I’d want to know is how these people know what butt tastes like.

Michelle

^Haha, agree

Thanks Epi Tea for the samples of sachets!

I smelled this bag before putting it in the mug. Definitely did not like the smell. I absolutely adore blood oranges and it doesn’t smell like them at all. Side note: I saw “red orange” juice at the grocery store the other day. Red orange. It’s a blood orange, vampires are in, I bet it’d sell more juice.

I got a new mug yesterday! How adorable is this, and it was only $5 http://www.flickr.com/photos/thethrillstheyyield/7722304886/ He’s got some ridiculous heat retention going on making it take forever for me to be able to take a sip.

I didn’t let the sachet steep too long in hopes of avoiding the cough syrupy taste and it seems to work. It’s pretty strong on the red rooibos flavor, so I can see how it can easily turn into that flavor. Sadly, that’s not the problem. I’m getting it and it all lies in the aftertaste. It tastes pretty fantastic beforehand, a really nice mix of rooibos and citrus, but if I take too long to finish my sip, there starts to be a syrupy sweetness that lingers in my throat. It’s not too pleasant but it wouldn’t cause me to stop drinking the cup.

Beyond that, this is enjoyable. Maybe not particularly blood orange, but pretty close. Definitely reminds me of Torani’s blood orange syrup more than cough syrup in the aftertaste.

Amber

OH wow. I thought I was the only one who noted a vintage nyquil quality to this lol. Nice mug! I love owls!! :D

momo

I love them too! I realized with this mug, there is starting to be too many owl things but I won’t stop until someone else notices.

Amber

Every knick knack I own is either owl, cat, or octopi related….so don’t feel bad.

The smell is true orange peel, not fake! I steeped the bag for 25 minutes in 180 water, and the doubled steeping time worked! A real blood orange flavor emerged, slightly sweet and pungent, like the blood orange soda my blood sugar can’t handle!
I’m very disappointed this was discontinued. This is the first rooibos I could enjoy unenhanced, and the first truly blood orange flavored tea I’ve had.

I’d like to write a lengthy review on this, but really, there’s only one thing to be said: this tastes like cough syrup. The kind of cough syrup that surprises you in that it doesn’t make you want to barf, but cough syrup nonetheless.

Thanks very much to Epi Tea for the pre-release sample of this!

I have to admit I’m a bit underwhelmed by this tea, especially after the Berry Rooibos yesterday. I don’t know if it’s me, but I just can’t taste the blood orange in this at all. I can smell it a bit, the taste is all rooibos.

Still, it’s a good cup, and I look forward to trying the rest of the samples!

I just got this sample in the mail today, thanks Epi Tea!!! I wish I could say that I liked it, but I want to give you my honest opinion. I thought it tasted like children’s orange cough syrup. The orange was just too overwhelming for me. However, the aroma was wonderful: just the right mix of orange with an earthy undertone. I’m so sorry Epi Tea… but I really appreciate the sample.

Scott B

Did it taste more like regular orange or blood orange (which has a bit of a raspberry taste to it)?

Tea and Trees

It tasted more like a regular orange to me.

Scott B

That is unfortunate. For me, I have never liked anything Orange with Rooibos-I don’t think that they complement each other very well, but it’s a popular blend.

I didn’t find the orange in this artificial tasting or like orange cought syrup :) I really liked the hint of orange that came through on the tail end of the rooibos.

Got my samples today in the mail. It was night time so I decided to give this one a try. It has a nice odor of citrus and rooibos. I brewed it for 13 minuets and let it cool to around room temp.

It tasted more of rooibos then of the citrus, which was more of an after taste. I think though I might have used too big a cup to brew it in though. I will have to use a smaller cup for the next samples I try.

Overall it is not bad. It is more for a plain rooibos lover with the citrus adding a nice after taste.
