73

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.

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

Not Really My Style:

chai (because, you know, the spices)
rooibos (I don’t get it. Everyone seems psyched for it. Not me).
those smoky teas, like lapsang souchong, though once in a while I’ll need something really strong and then I like them.
