A beetroot in tea? Are you serious?
I am not a fan of beetroot. I can not even imagine it in tea. It is just weird, you know?

Boiling water, 300 ml glass tea mug, 2 tea spoons of mix in strainer.
Beetroot is very good dyestuff. I know it, because we have it on the garden and my mother(and grandma) loves it. Not men in my family though :D

So, it turned into pink – deep red colour. It smells quite earthy, after beetroot naturally and little of orange zest. It looks quite lovely.

In taste it is good. Yep beetroot is quite strong, but I was afraid it will be too strong. Certainly noticable that earthy flavour of it.
But then there is sweet notes. I assume it is that apple pieces in and orange peel. That makes it milder, sweeter and bit refreshing.

Flavors: Apple, Earth, Fruity, Orange Zest

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 15 sec 2 tsp 10 OZ / 300 ML

I’ve had tea with beets as an additive, but never front and center. Interesting! Beets are one of those vegetables I’ve always intended to like, but can’t seem to find a recipe that makes my taste buds happy.

gmathis: you exactly said what I think about beetroot. But no, I just did not had it in tea before. But it is working quite well.

I had beet lemonade a few nights ago. Definitely very earthy but I liked it!

Beet is definitely seeing an uptick in usage, within tea but in beverage in general. It’s unique because as much as it has an earthy taste it also has a very pleasant sweetness (after all, rock sugar is usually made with beet sugar) – and it contributes a very vibrant colour – which makes it an appealing ingredient to blend with.

Pickled and in borscht are about the only ways I like beets. Beet lemonade sounds intriguing though.

I forgot about borscht, in there I like it too. Beet lemonade looks good too!
