Teapro subscription arrived this morning and I couldn’t resist trying one straight away. I picked the Orange Sunshine blend and actually froze it in the lolly mold that was in the box.
First, the smell is very citrusy and reminds me of candied orange (it’s on the ingredients list but there’s no Steepster ingredient for it, or the orange blossom or the rose peel).
The colour, however, is red. Like deep raspberry red. And the flavour is mostly hibiscus and berry-like. I can’t taste any orange at all.
I’ll leave scoring it for another day – maybe I just got too much hibiscus in the 2 teaspoons I used… or maybe it’s more orangey when brewed hot or cold rather than frozen. I will shake up the bag for next time and find out.
Flavors: Berries, Hibiscus, Tart
