Tea of the Week for July 24, 2017: Orange Raspberry Green Rooibos

Posted by on

 Orange Raspberry Green Rooibos!

Tea Description: Nothing too fancy this week - but it is something light, refreshing and sweet. A perfect summertime drink. Organic green rooibos bursting with sunny orange flavor with notes of bright raspberry. 

There's not really much else to say about this except - you should try it!

organic ingredients: green rooibos, oranges, raspberries & natural flavors

Nice!

This is really tasty - the raspberry and orange meld together to create a flavor that is both raspberry and orange - it's almost seamless. I get that tangy-sweet note of raspberry and the bright, juicy flavor of orange all in one sip. 

Because this is a green rooibos, the flavor is lighter - sweeter - with almost a fruity tone to it that ties into the orange and raspberry. It doesn't really stand out as a strong flavor - and that's just the way I prefer rooibos to taste.

I'm going to keep this post short and sweet because really - there's not a lot more to say about this one. I recommend trying it iced! It makes a delicious, refreshing cold drink!

to brew: use 1 1/2 to 2 scoops (or rounded teaspoons) of leaf to 12 ounces of hot water (190°F). Steep for 8 minutes. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes - I recommend going iced with this tea. It's good hot but it's amazing iced!

Tea of the Week for July 17, 2017: Passion Fruit de la Crème White Tea!

 Passion Fruit de la Crème White Tea!Tea Description:  I've not done a passion fruit tea before - so I thought it was about time to change that! Because passion fruit tends to be a tart fruit, I thought the perfect tea base would be a sweet Bai Mu Dan from the Yunnan Province. Then I [...]

Tea of the Week for July 10, 2017: Gourmet Root Beer Black Tea!

 Gourmet Root Beer Black Tea!Tea Description: I had the idea for this tea way back before we took over 52Teas. I'm not sure if I shared the idea with Frank - I know that I was in his email pretty much every week or so with new ideas for tea and I'm also pretty sure [...]

Tea of the Week for July 3, 2017: Tropical Flip Green Tea!

 Tropical Flip!Tea Description: It's summer and one thing that goes hand in hand with this time of year (at least for me) is iced tea. Sure, I prefer hot tea and I still drink it daily even in the summer but during the hottest times of the day during the summer months, I generally turn [...]

Tea of the Week for June 26, 2017: Kumquat Cheesecake Honeybush!

 Kumquat Cheesecake Honeybush!Tea Description: I'll admit it - I wasn't 100% convinced with this flavor idea when I was trying to think of a flavor for this week. I knew I wanted a caffeine-free blend - but I wasn't sure what direction to go in. I already had planned a lot of fruity, flavor packed [...]

Taste Test: Blackberry Zomba (A Special Reblend)!

A month or so ago, one of my customers (and someone I consider a friend) suggested that I reblend a tea from last summer: Blackberry Zomba. Well, actually she suggested that it be added to the D's Teas line. I didn't see that as a feasible option since this Steamed Zomba green tea is something [...]

Tea of the Week for June 19, 2017: Just Peachy!

 Just Peachy!Tea Description: Recently, I obtained a beautiful Nilgiri tea that reminded me quite a bit of a first flush Darjeeling. It had a light, crisp 'greenness' to it that was very Darjeeling-esque, as well as that light, fruity nature with hints of spicy tones that I enjoy so much with a Nilgiri. It didn't [...]

Tea of the Week for June 12, 2017: Papaya in the Watermelon Patch (White Tea)!

 Papaya in the Watermelon Patch!Tea Description: I love, love, love watermelon. I think it's safe to say that when I was a youngster, it was one of my favorite foods and definitely my favorite fruit. I would sprinkle it with a little salt - just the way my dad would do - and I'd devour [...]
