Rooibos Blood Orange

Infused with zesty, succulent orange flavour, this redbush is a wonderfully flavoursome, caffeine free infusion. Quite sweet in taste and low in tannin, it's delicious hot or cold. Try chilling, then serving in a jug of crushed ice with orange segments for a fantastic summer drink.

Bought it then quickly ordered more

Turned me into what Rooibos should taste like with a delicious orange kick. Fresh and complex flavour which quenches your thirst and tastes as good hot as it does cold

Last year I took afternoon tea at Edinburgh Castle. Being allergic to caffeine, I ordered the Blood Orange Rooibos. It opened my eyes to what a good quality rooibos was. Fruity, with so many subtle flavours and yet reminded me of the times I could drink a cup of builders tea. I’ve tried since then to find a blood orange rooibos that achieves the standard set that day, and failed repeatedly.

However the blood orange rooibos from Tugboat is as good, if not better, than that from Edinburgh Castle. I now look forward in anticipation to my daily pot of blood orange rooibos.

As an aside, the Tugboat experience is perfect; great communication, fast service, excellent packaging and the hand-written note with free sample is just the icing on the cake.
