This is a fun tea – it would be perfect for a tea party with kids. The dry blend is textured and colorful with a strong tangy smell. Watching it steep is the best part, the red pieces ooze a vivid magenta trail of color as they sink to the bottom. It does have a bit of sediment, but that’s to be expected from a rooibos tea. As for the flavor, it’s rather punchy to start: tart, with a lot of sourness coming from the apple. The citrus flavors are more subdued and the whole thing fades to a delightful sugar coated fruit flavor. I’m not super into fruity tea, or sweet teas, but this has a nice cooling effect. Sip it slowly, the tea gets more concentrated as you go, and the tartness builds on itself – drink it too fast and you’ll completely miss the subtle sweet notes at the end. This is one that changes a lot depending on what pieces you get in each cup- mine seems to have a lot more apple in it than anything else.

“A woman is like a tea bag- you don’t know how strong she is until she’s in hot water.”

Double Cup is the steamy dream of a feminist tea lover – bringing sexy back to tea. Far gone are the days of stiff Victorian restraint, let the 1950s housewife toil in the kitchen, it’s time for women to serve themselves. Double Cup Teas is two heaping cups of self love: One part artistry, one part activism.

We’re interested in teas as diverse, bold, and complex as the women who drink them.
