Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this.

This is pleasant … the cranberry and blood orange balance each other out nicely so that it doesn’t become too tart or too sweet. I think I would probably prefer it if the fruit notes were able to mute the flavor of the rooibos a bit more, it has that distinct rooibos/nutty/woody kind of flavor to it that I’m not wild about, but, it doesn’t taste too bad in this cup. The berry and citrus have a nice, tangy finish.

Not my favorite rooibos blend, but, it’s not bad either.

Their regular cranberry orange black is very tasty; stands to reason that this would follow suit.

Wow, what an incredibly hefty name! With a name like that and an ingredient list that includes red rooibos, blood orange, cranberry, lemongrass, and rose petals, this tisane is shaping up to be something superb (at least it sounds like it!) While this tea steeps in just-boiled water for five minutes (one cup of water), I take a look at the box and packaging. This tea comes in pyramid satchets for greater water flow and better brewing. A lot of teas do not benefit from pyramid infusers, much less tea bags, thanks to a lack of space in which to unfurl their leaves. However, rooibos, having no large leaves to unfurl, does just as well in this pyramid infuser as it would loose in the cup.

This cuppa smells delicious. The cranberry and rooibos are definitely the prominent scents in the steeped tea. But I know that it is the taste results for which you are waiting! So I let the tea cool down a bit. For some reason it seems as though it is taking longer than tea normally does. My first sip is very much rooibos, laced with cranberries. I was actually expecting the cranberry flavor to be a lot more prominent than it actually is. However, it is quite pleasant and supports the rooibos well from the sidelines. The aftertaste is where I detect the blood orange. It offers a slightly sweet, slightly tart finish to the sip. Overall, I am finding this tea a bit more subtle than what I originally expected, which was a blast of cranberry flavor. On my personal enjoyment scale, I would rate this tea an 82/100.

Smells like sweet cranberry and Blood Orange. I have been wanting a real Blood Orange and can’t find them anywhere. I can taste the cranberry more at the beginning of the sip and more blood orange at the end of the sip but neither are over the top. This is a more gentle flavored Rooibos, I think.

Not bad at all…just not my favorite.
