LOVE is tea iced for summer. 3 bags of CBO with 4 bags reg black tea into 2 quarts hot water & steep for 30 mins. Add sugar to taste. Never fails to elicit raves of "this is so good, what kind of tea is this?" I have sold 4 different family members on this tea. Now I coordinate placing a large order for all of us 2x a year!

I love the surprise on people's faces when I serve them iced tea made with this blend. It's very refreshing and the perfect warm weather drink. Serve with an slice of orange or tangerine.

Bright aroma of blood oranges

5 Stars Bright aroma of blood oranges

I grow blood oranges, and there is nothing that compares with their bright, sunny aroma. Blood oranges are naturally sweet, not tart. We use them for fresh juice and also for making Mimosas for holiday brunch. The juice is naturally red. I was skeptical about blood orange flavored tea, and am very pleased to report I've never enjoyed a more lovely tea. The cranberry adds a bit of tartness that enhances and contrasts the sweetness of the blood orange flavor. I truly am surprised at how much I enjoy this tea, and will keep a good stock of it.

Got a single bag of this included with my order. Smells wonderful, tastes fruity and delicious. No bitterness, can be sipped straight, but I added sugar because I like sweet tea. Wished I had ordered a can of this instead of the Safari Sunset and Cinnamon and Plum of which I care for neither. Will order a can of this though!

First time I had this tea but at lunch with a friend, and I fell in love with it. I then went to this site to order. I have shared with family and friends, and they asked me for more. Greatest taste in tea ever as well as their other flavors, but this one is my favorite.

I can't get enough of cranberry orange flavor, so when I found this tea I knew I would have achieved tea nirvana! Love this one especially for breakfast . I haven't used it for iced tea, but I see of previous reviews that I should give it a try.

This is my favorite mid-day tea, when I still want a pick-me-up but have finished with coffee. It is just sweet enough to drink without extra sweetener, and is a delightful finish to lunch. This purchase was a refill, and I'm sure I'll buy again.

My go-to winter tea of choice, like a Russian Tea mix without the sugar and petrochemicals. In addition to enjoying this on miserable rainy days, we've used this as a base for tea sangrias and as a faux smoking bishop (brew it up, serve it in a crockpot with a clove studded orange floating in it, with or without mulling spices or port).

Got this tea as a present. It was sitting for a while, because I normally not crazy about fruity teas, prefer black tea only. When I finely used it, I was impressed by the great mild taste. I do not even need sugar for this one.(I have a sweet tooth. Need sugar or else in my tea). Great tea.

This is my favorite black tea of all time, other than plain old black tea. It has SUCH a wonderful wonderful scent of blood oranges, along with a slight tang of cranberry when you drink it. I love to drink it with some honey, and it is SO good even cold... So even when I forget to drink it all when it's hot, I come back to a wonderful cold surprise! I will always be ordering this tea.

i first experienced this blend as iced tea at a bakery near my home. Although they no longer use this as their house iced-tea blend, I still enjoy a cup, iced or warm. Since I am not often near that bakery any more, I will have to suggest this blend to the coffee stand I frequent and who offer other blends of Republic teas.

Smooth, perfectly balanced flavors of cranberry and blood orange. This is one delicious tea! I love both cranberry and orange, and really like the flavor of the orange without spices. I haven't tried it iced yet, but I plan to this spring. As a hot tea, it's the current family favorite. With 3 tea-sippers in our house, the 50-bag tin doesn't last long, so I bought the bulk 250 bags--a good value!

I am so sad for all other teas. After sampling this tea over a year ago, it's all I ever buy or drink now. I keep trying other great RoT teas, but none of them are even half the tea of this. Possible the best tea in the whole universe. I buy bulk bags and full leaf all year long. If this tea is every discontinued, I may just shrivel up and die from thirst.
