Leaf Type: Rooibos
Where to Buy: Design a Tea
Editor’s Note: This was a custom blend sample from Design a Tea. If you’d like to try it, you can order your own sample here… just select rooibos as your base, and the flavors of cranberry and apple, and tell ‘em the SororiTEA Sisters sent you! ~Liberteas
Mmmmmm… this is a very tasty flavored rooibos tea. The apple and cranberry combination is traditionally very autumnal, but, this tea tastes fresh and lively – and one that I’d be happy to enjoy year round!
The flavor is sweet – I’m not getting a whole lot of tartness that I expected from the cranberry… there is a slight tangy note, but nothing that I’d call sour or even tart. Since I’m not a particular fan of a strong tartness or sour tasting teas – I’m quite enjoying the lack of it in this tisane.
The apple essence is smooth and sweet tasting. It actually tastes a bit like apple juice with a little something extra… not quite one of the cran-apple juice, but, more like an apple-cranberry juice, if you know what I mean.
Overall, this is a very tasty rooibos blend. It is not readily available on the Design a Tea website as a signature blend, however, if it is one that you’d like to try, you can order two free samples and you can choose this combination if you’d like… or get creative and concoct your own tea blend (simply pay $1.00 for shipping, and you’ll receive 2 samples of your choice and a $2.00 off coupon for your next order).
If you do decide to create your own blend – and I hope you do! – please stop by and leave me a comment and let me know what you’ve tried… I love to hear your tasty ideas!
