drank Blood Orange by Fusion Teas
119 tasting notes

Hmmmm….. I’m surprised to see that I’m the first to review this……..

I got my very generous samples from Fusion Tea Room about a week ago and I haven’t gotten around to reviewing any of them yet (I apologize, I’ve been busy!). I’ve tried two others besides this that were EXCELLENT. I decided I wanted something citrusy and I knew that I had this waiting for me so I opened it up!

I meant to steep this for 7 and a half minutes (that’s how I usually brew herbals) but I forgot and so it went well over 10 minutes. I was a little nervous because this has quite a bit of hibiscus in it (though I must commend them because there’s a pretty equal ratio of orange rind to hibiscus) but surprisingly it didn’t get too tart! I’m not to sure that I like it as much hot and plain, however….. Don’t get me wrong, it’s good as it is, but I have two very distinct ideas on what I’d like to try with this tea. The first is obviously to make it iced (I think that would be AMAZING) and the second is to mix it with some black tea…. Maybe a Ruby Black? I think that would be amazing!

This is pretty good and I would like to thank Fusion Tea Room again for sending me this generous sample!

I’m Ian and I’m a 15 year old student who lives in Vermont. I started (heavily) drinking tea in Late 2010 and have been obsessed ever since!

I tend to drink more black and herbal teas, though I do enjoy oolong, green, and white, and I’m exploring other facets of the tea world (I’m still trying with pu-erh!)

I tend to lean towards sweeter and fruity flavors in my teas, and I’m not a big fan of smoky flavored teas, or anything that’s VERY bold.

I also enjoy a cup of coffee every once and a while, though it does mess with my stomach sometimes so I don’t drink it as often as I drink tea.

In addition to tea drinking, I’m also really interested in:
Classical music (I’ve been playing clarinet for 5 years now and it’s my favorite thing to do), independent arts/music, education on environmental sustainability, reading, Fair Trade and safe-trade practices, Cognitive science, art history, and a lot more.

I’m open to swaps, but I don’t have a very wide collection. Regardless, if I review a tea and you would like a sample, feel free to message me and we can work something out! If you would like to just try something without a swap, feel free to ask too! I know that I personally don’t have a lot of teas to swap and if you’re in the same position as me just feel free to ask for a sample and I’ll send you some, no strings attached!

I run a blog on TeaTrade which you can find here: http://serendipitea.teatra.de/. The goal of my blog is to better connect tea with the arts and go beyond just the taste aspect of tea. Enjoy!
