Thumbs up!"The orange and peppermint each held their own, never really combining into one fused flavor. Rather, each ingredient could be tasted distinctly, with the other ingredient providing a subtle flavor in the background. "

kteaslogoRooibush Orange Peppermint is not currently listed on KTeas website, so I imagine this must be a new blend in their lineup. By looking at the tea, I can tell that it consists of rooibos, orange peels, and peppermint. Of course, because I don’t have the ingredients list available to me, I can’t say if there are other ingredients, such as “natural flavors” present. After sampling this tea, the first thing I thought to myself was that I wished I had discovered this little flavor combination earlier. If you are like me, you may have initially found the combination of orange and mint to be rather off-putting, as these are two strong flavors and perhaps not ingredients that would play nice together. Luckily for my sake, my preconceived notion could not be more wrong. The orange and peppermint combine in a most unique way. At the first sip, I thought “Wow, that’s a great orange flavor”. In the next sip, I found myself thinking “Wow, that’s a great mint flavor”. And so went the back-and-forth flavor display for the remainder of my first cup…and second cup…and third cup…and fourth cup, until sadly my entire sample had been consumed. The orange and peppermint each held their own, never really combining into one fused flavor. Rather, each ingredient could be tasted distinctly, with the other ingredient providing a subtle flavor in the background. The rooibos was, for me, the least exciting part of this blend, as it was very mild and easily overpowered by the orange and peppermint flavors. The orange flavor was refreshing and clean, the peppermint flavor invigorating and crisp, and the overall effect was a tea that was downright delicious. Even though this is a caffeine-free blend, the flavors are intense enough that this could work as a morning pick-me-up. Of course, because it is naturally caffeine-free, it is also perfectly suited for dessert and late-night tea drinking. I experimented with adding sugar to my fourth cup of this blend, but really I think the tea is naturally sweet on its own. Add sugar if you must, but you’ll probably find it unnecessary. In all, this was a surprisingly delicious blend and one I will purchase as well as recommend.
