This is a tea I have been using since a while now, and it seems I just have one more cup left. I bought it in a small tea shop in Pau, France (where I used to live), and cf another tea I bought there, I assume its origin is Dammann Frères as somebody on Steepster said it could well be.
In another tasting note I wrote that I´m quite fussy about orange flavoured teas. Nothing seems to come close to the taste of a real orange, and I don´t like it to overwhelmingly smell/taste as orange zest either. I love fresh oranges (and anything that comes close, like a good clementine), but a blood orange is really the top. The extra acidity of a good blood orange makes it so refreshing (as a matter of fact, when I juice oranges which are rather sweet I tend to add a lemon or a grapefruit to get the acidity up), in my opinion.
I bought the tea for it being blood orange flavoured, and although its original aroma´s have gone, this can still be noticed when brewing the black tea : it´s primarily a black tea, with the blood orange acidity coming through in the finish. Another positive note : there´s nothing artificial about the flavour. I really should try to get another bag or tin of this tea, to refresh my observations about the tea. So long, one more cup to go ;-)

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
