I do not like this tea. I purely bought it as it was onsale and it had a nice tin.

It tastes very red rooibos strong and the orange tastes like fake powdered koolaid or tang.

However, tonight I just wants lots of cheap iced tea. I steeped up 2 bags, poured over ice and smashed an entire orange in there. Now it tastes better, like real orange, but the rooibos is still way too strong.

Blech, that’s too bad.

I think I am starting to become aware of the scent of rooibos and honeybush teas, because when the tin is opened you are hit in the face with a distinct honeybush scent followed closely by red rooibos. As for orange or caramel scent there is nothing there, but I have never been let down by a Safeway product yet; so onward I trudge.

I went for a cold steep today, since it is FLIPPING hot out and I can wait for this while I sip what is left of the passion tea lemonade I made yesterday.

This tea is pretty to watch as it cold steeps, all the loverly amber colourd liquor slip sliding around the icecubes to pool at the bottom of my glass is almost mesmerising (I even forgot about the knife I was holding while making salad for din-din) Once I stirred and added a little simple syrup, I was fully let down by the lack of orange and caramel flavours I was waiting to taste.

But I will not shelf this one indefinantly just yet, as I am thinking a hot steep tonight will bring out the caramel and orange flavours.

Same teabag, steeped with hot water, as soon as the hot water hit the leaves I could smell caramel and orange… My rating just went up!

EWWW dish water flavor!! I thought it tasted like woodchips mixed with orange tang. The tin is really nice – I ended up tossing the tea and reusing the tin. I didn’t want to inflict the tea on others.

Sounds like they tried to reel you in with the presentation & forgot to think about the tea. Yikes!

VariaTEA

Oh wow, that is quite unfortunate.
