As a profoundly shallow person, I enjoy a nice-looking tea. And this Blood Orange Black is a stunner.
If that tea walked by on the street, I would whistle at it.
I bought this blend because it was pretty. I’ve enjoyed several cups of it so far because it’s tasty. It’s a Darjeeling paired with orange peel, rose hips, apple pieces, safflowers, rose petals and orange, vanilla and lemon flavors. It’s sweet, creamy, and citrus-y.
The citrus doesn’t thwack you over the head with a two-by-four; it’s part of a medley.
The vanilla notes make you think there’s cream in this, even when there isn’t, which is really nice, especially first thing in the morning, when I tend to want something fairly sweet. This goes down easy.
If you’re ever in Pittsburgh’s historical Strip District, you should check out Prestogeorge. It’s very pretty in there. You can look at all the blends and choose them according to appearance, like I did; and possibly luck out, like I did.
Here’s the scoop!
