Joseph’s Tea is a US tea company founded by power duo, Shannon and Guerby Joseph. Both having an entrepreneurial spirit, they loved exploring new passions together and discovered a love for tea and tea shops along the way. Joseph’s Tea is a way for them to help consumers find their daily dose of healthiness and warmth, with high-quality, all-natural tea blends. They reached out to me and sent me their Blood Orange Rooibos to review (Anything blood orange is a big winner for me). Here are my thoughts:

Blood Orange Rooibos: Subtle and a bit elegant are the thoughts that come to mind with this blend. The aroma of the tea before brewing citrusy and sweet-smelling and brews a nice vibrant orange-red color. The aroma of the brewed tea had many rooibos notes in it, almost sharper with some sweet notes. This tea really reminds me more of a rooibos tea with little flavor pockets. Upon tasting the tea, I first noticed full-bodied rooibos taste, with slight woodsy notes in it. At the end of each sip, there was a slightly sweeter element that was at the tip of each sip. I would call this more a rooibos tea with subtle elements of the blood orange. It definitely does not scream blood orange, but I love rooibos so I am very happy with this blend.

Ingredients:South African Red Tea, Manadarin Orange Flavor, Marigold

Price: This tea is $15 for 20 tea sachets which equivalents to $0.75 per tea sachet. This tea does not do too well on the second steeping so it is mostly a one use tea. I think this pricing is a tiny bit on the higher side.

Packaging: The tea came in a tin that sealed tightly. This helped keep the aroma in and the tea fresher. I find that sometimes if rooibos is not properly stored, it definitely can go bad quicker than other teas. So, I was happy with the tin.

Sourcing: The “red tea” is from South Africa. There is not too much sourcing information needed for this tea, in my opinion.


Do you like rooibos? My mom has never been a fan, but I love the natural almost nuttiness it has. Happy Brewing!

Sunset-tea-ni Cocktail

Why this recipe works with tea: Upping your mixology game with tea is a no-brainer and takes minimal effort. Don’t use tea steeped in water as a mixer for cocktails; you’ll just water down the drink. Instead, throw a couple of tea bags into 4 ounces (1/2 cup) of a room temperature spirit and let it steep for 30 minutes. Remove the tea bags and ...

This orange rooibos from Joseph’s Tea is the perfect example of that. It’s smooth and inviting and it has the perfect amount of orange flavor—just enough to tease the senses but not overwhelm the palate...
