Tea of the Week for August 2, 2021!

It took some tweaking to get this tea where I wanted it to be. It even took some hibiscus! (Gasp!) Under most circumstances, hibiscus is a nope. Generally speaking, I’m not a big fan of hibiscus. When overdone, it can overwhelm a blend. When oversteeped, the hibiscus will get very thick & syrupy (not a very pleasant texture to me, personally) & unpleasantly tart (again, too tart for me).

But, for this blend, it helps enhance the tangy notes of the blood orange just enough – as well as provide a pleasing raspberry tint to the steeped liquid. (Just make sure that you don’t have too much hibiscus in your measurement when you steep it – one flower per serving should suffice.)

The base for this blend is our amazing Genmaicha. I added a bunch of dried blood orange wedges, some vanilla beans & a bit of hibiscus. The result is a tea that is sweet & creamy, just a little bit toasty from the Genmaicha & bit tart from the blood orange & hibiscus. It tastes like an amazingly delightful twist to the classic summertime creamsicle treat … only better, because TEA!

This blend is organic, VEGAN, gluten-free, allergen-friendly & all natural!

This one is pleasant enough, but I don’t really get much orange from it, if any? Which is a shame, given I love orange teas. Mostly it tastes like a somewhat creamy genmaicha. I would’ve almost guessed it was the marshmallow treat one? Not tasting hibiscus either, even though I know there was some in my scoop. Not surprised by that though, since the steeped mug is very pale in color.

So it’s enjoyable, but mostly just genmaicha he he.

Not overly orangey but some nice creaminess, with the distinctive genmaicha base. Not a favourite, but enjoyable enough.
