Discontinued Trader Joe's orange spice rooibos tea -- what's a good replacement?

isadorasmama | Dec 13, 201003:25 PM

Normally I'd buy this dirt cheap yet subtle and delicious bagged tea in bulk every time I ventured out to Trader Joe's. Little did I know they'd discontinue it without warning leaving me scrambling to find a decent replacement. I searched quite a bit last year when they first removed it from their shelves and came up with nada. Now it's winter again and I'm jonesing. Most orange-based teas are garishly sweet or tart, the Trader Joe's was rich and had a nice spicy accent, without it being too cinnamon-y or clove-y like some brands can be. The rooibos was a bonus, as was the organic aspect. GAH! I need help, folks. Can anyone steer me in the right direction?

Here are/were the ingredients from the TJs version:

Trader Joe's Orange Spice Rooibos Tea Ingredients

Rooibos Herb, Orange Peel, Cinnamon Bark, Roasted Chicory Root, Orange Oil, Anise Seeds, Cloves.
