Thank you, QueenOfTarts, for sending me a sample of this tea!
It smells so good! I don’t know about the blood orange bit, but it did smell very fruity/rooibos-y from the package. Oh wait. I like to…. inhale my tea… and yep! I smell the citrus now!
Poured water on top and the woodsy rooibos flavour is coming out, as well as the bright citrus! You know, this reminds me a bit of TeaForté’s Mojito Marmalade, but that one is like suuuper bright and flavourful. This one has more of a muted citrus flavour because of the rooibos, but it smells great!
Mmmm I just had a small sip (after about 4min of brewing) and it tastes so nice! Definitely a tad watered down so I’m letting it sit for another 10 or so minutes to pull all the flavour out. It has the bright citrus taste, while still holding it a bit back with the rooibos.
Definitely a great tea! Now I’m just waiting for it to brew to how I like all my rooibos (overleaved and oversteeped aww yiss) and I know it’ll taste great!
About half an hour later and I’ve been steeping my tea for forever and THIS IS GREAT. I would actually do with a bit more leaves though. I do taste the orange! Not just citrus, but orange :)
