From New Mexico Tea Company

Blood Orange black was inspired by our most popular blend, blood orange rooibos. It has a similar flavor of citrus orange with a light vanilla undertone, however because it uses black tea as a base, you also get a nice caffeine kick.

Extra Info:
Blood oranges usually have pitted skin and are smaller than an average orange. The juice is sweet with a somewhat bitter aftertaste and less acidic than that of regular table oranges.

Ingredients:
Black tea, Orange peel, Rose-hips, Apple pieces, Rose petals, Safflower, Orange vanilla and lemon flavor

My winter tea. Nice orange scent with some vanilla. The flavour is certainly citrus. Strong, a little sweet, and slightly tart. There is a also some vanilla.

Flavors: Citrus, Orange, Vanilla

Sipdown. I iced this one too (it was a really warm day, in case anyone is wondering about this sudden trend in icing) and despite the fact that I used double the leaf and accidentally oversteeped it, it’s SO MUCH BETTER this way. As in, I can finally taste the dreamsicle. The orange and vanilla notes taste as heavenly as they smell. This has been such a successful day of steeping! (Though, erm, decidedly less successful in other areas, namely my spring cleaning tasks.) I’m cleaning out the cupboard now, wondering what else I can ice :)

Rating: I had this tea at 73 (for a hot cup) but I would give it 95 iced.

Have you tried the Blood Orange Rooibos? I think that one has a more “refreshing” aspect to it. Plus, it’s better iced and/or as a sun tea!

Well, I really hate the taste of rooibos, but I have had rooibos teas that were nice, simply because the other flavors covered up the rooibos taste altogether. How much of the rooibos flavor comes through in Blood Orange Rooibos?

MadHatterTeaDrunk

Hardly any. I’ll be the first to say that I greatly dislike the flavor of a rooibos tea. However, all you can taste with this blend is the orange cream flavors.

Tamarindel

That sounds really good then! I’ll grab some in my next order, thanks :)

Delicious, slightly sweet, slightly acidic but not excessively so. I use less tea than the usual 1 teaspoon/oz but then let it steep in the pot, so it keeps intensifying.

Flavors: Flowers, Orange Zest, Vanilla
