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.

    I love looking at this tea when I'm preparing it for steeping, it's beautiful. The flavor is refreshing both hot or cold. It's so good that I always save a little not to touch so I can have it on hand to offer and introduce it to my friends. —Davis
    This tea is so good. My son and I were literally fighting over the last cup. It tastes like a dreamsicle. Once my teenage son tasted this he started drinking and enjoying tea.—Jennifer Beedie
    This is one of my favs! I love to add some vanilla to it and it tastes just like orange dreamsicle.—Leslie Moon
    I am a rooibos fan. I know this tea would be very good; I was wrong this tea is great. What a treat; I immediately ordered this for family members.—Henry
    Yummy, creamy citrus. One I would certainly consider reordering as an occasional treat.—Moodleminski
    This is my favorite rooibos tea!! Even my non tea drinking friend request this tea every time they visit. —New2tea
    This tea has a nice flavor. Being new to loose leaf tea and honestly to any tea beyond your standard restaurant iced tea; this tea is enjoyable and gives me another healthier drink option.—Givingupsoda
    I love this tea! It makes a perfect afternoon treat, or an evening cup before bed. Its a perfect combination of rooibos and orange. Brews up great hot or cold. Love it!—Monica
    This is one of my favorite evening teas. The first time I tried it, I wasn't thrilled, but then I tried it again and was hooked. Definitely relaxing and quite enjoyable with the orange creaminess.—GoPete
    I love the addicting scent of this tea! It tastes smooth, mild, and with an orange creamsicle flavor. My daughter loves it! But somehow, this tea gives me heartburn. I would have given this 5 stars if it weren't for that and also the little herbs seep through my tea strainer.—Celeste
    This is just PERFECT for my 12th Night Wassail. Take 1 gallon apple cider, 1 large jar of pineapple juice, add the Blood Orange Smoothie Tea to taste, add cinnamon stick, whole cloves, and some allspice, let simmer for 3 to 6 hours, then add to container of choice (I use glass). Serve it with fresh ginger bread on Christmas Eve, JUST YUM!—KT in MT
    My sons love this. They burned through the bag really fast. I got the last couple of servings and could see why. It's a really wonderful, smooth rooibos blend to have while I'm reading my book before bed. I had to reorder, and will continue to keep it on hand. —Misty R
    This tea came as a free sample in my last order! It was an awesome surprise! I enjoyed it later that evening (since it is caffeine-free) as a sweet snack substitute, and let me tell you- it did the trick! I will definitely be ordering some now that I have tried it!!—Sarah
    This tea is good if you're feeling like a cold is coming on.—Tea Lover
    I just received this tea as a sample with my order so I promptly made a cup to taste it. I was pleasantly surprised because I don't normally like herbal tea or any kind of orange flavor but this tea was very good. I made it into a latte by adding hot evaporated milk. It was delicious and very satisfying.—Eileen
    This is my favorite rooibus blend by the Tea Spot by far. I don't much care for plain rooibus, so it was perfect for me because it had pretty intense citrus flavors. I can totally see using this to make sun tea in the summer, for a caffeine-free alternative. —Jen
    I hated herbal teas until I tried this. Its so citrusy with a nice cream flavor to it - its like a warm orange creamsicle! —Mel
    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
