Blender's Notes:

This creamy blend of naturally caffeine–free South African red rooibos, orange, and vanilla is herbal bliss! This herbal tea combines rooibos, orange peel, hibiscus, rosehips, apples, safflowers, rose petals, vanilla, and citrus flavors. It brews into a dark red liquor with a naturally sweet, creamy taste and aroma, reminiscent of orange creamsicles and Orange Julius smoothies! Kids and adults both love this herbal tea, making it a great substitute for sugary juices and sodas, with no lack of flavor or thirst-quenching satisfaction. It is fantastic by itself, or with a bit of sweetener. You cannot over–steep this tea (the longer the better). The health benefits of rooibos are numerous; it is full of antioxidants and healthy minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, and fluoride.

    This tea really is an Orange Julius in a cuppa tea. It's lovely hot and positively perfect over ice. This is the tea I try (and always succeed) at converting my tea bagging friends to loose leaf tea with. Once they've tried it they are hooked and want to try other loose leaf teas. A must try!—Katie
    I was a little slow to come around to the teas with pretty names but after reading a few reviews I was curious...OH MY GOSH! I wanted to swim in this tea after my first sip. I drank the whole pot, hid the tin JUST in case someone else wanted tea. Wonderful hot with a touch of honey and amazing after it cools over ice. I am SO hooked!—Rhonda
    This brew has a rather interesting flavor. The citrus and rooibos is only barely detectable in the aftertaste. The body is mostly vanilla and obviously a very fresh very high quality vanilla. It is actually creamy like a creamy ice cream. It remind me a little of orange sherbert mixed with golden french vanilla ice cream.—Umbreona
