I had received a generous sample of this from The TeaGuy last night (thank you again).
I had a dull night at work last night since there wasn’t a whole lot to be done due to the holiday. So, coming home and finding tea mail on the kitchen table was a great way to end the night. I had opened the box and each sample within, just to give them a quick smell; however, the Blood Orange sample had stuck out much more than the others (which they too had smelled wonderful). Therefore, I boiled water, threw some of this into an infuser, steeped for 5 minutes, and sipped.
Notes: Aroma: smells like a sweet freshly picked orange, vanilla, and rooibos (uh oh). Taste: The citrus hides the rooibos well (thank goodness) and there is a touch of vanilla (?) in the aftertaste; reminds me of a type of citrus dessert.
I noted that this would make a refreshing iced tea, so I’ll make sure to try it this weekend via cold brew.
Flavors: Blood orange, Citrus, Sweet, Vanilla
