Blood Orange

No tea has captured tea drinkers’ hearts as Blood Orange has. Citrusy flavor, earthy but light red rooibos, slightly sour and zesty hibiscus, orange and rosehips and sweet apple and rose petals with a hint of vanilla and lemon–all these ingredients make Blood Orange a true flavor explosion impossible to describe. Subduing the strong empowering rooibos flavor or astringent orange notes; Blood Orange is like a creamy and soft sweet orange candy from childhood memories, finished with a mouth-watering zesty, but light note. This caffeine-free tea can be made hot, cold, iced, or even as a latte.

MORE ABOUT  

THIS TEA

tea origin

Red rooibos is made from leaves of Aspalathus linearis or red bush, grown exclusively in South Africa. This bush is used for making green and red rooibos herbal teas. The red color is a result of fermentation that fresh and chopped tea leaves undergo right after harvesting. Bushes are harvested once per year, usually in the first quarter of the year. This tea is naturally caffeine free, naturally sweet, and rich in antioxidants.
