This tea was a pleasant surprise. I am not a huge fan of fruit teas, but I needed an evening decaf calming tea mostly for guests. I too fell in love with the slightly tart aroma that does not fall on the bitter side. Great blend, I'll be sure to always have it on hand.
Perfect companion to an evening meal, or as an iced tea.
This tea blew me away with the first sip, I was fully expecting to get a flavorful tea after having sampled other offerings from H&S but I was extremely surprised with this one. The tea comes out with a sour bitterness you can only associate with oranges, obviously blood oranges! Believe it or not I've never had a blood orange so I was going into this not knowing fully what to expect, but with everything I've read everyone else has it spot on. I would love to say I loved this tea, but for me the taste just didn't click for me. The bitter/sourness was just a bit too much for me to enjoy. I will be looking to try this as an iced tea at some point in the future as I feel it may fit better there than as a hot tea. For someone who likes oranges or blood oranges I think you will love this tea so don't hesitate to give it a try.
Not too sweet. Not too mild. Lovely fragrance. Warm, rich flavor. Really just perfect in every way.
