I just received my tea sampler from Twinings in the mail, and of course I had to jump right in and start tasting. The smell of the citrus is very powerful while brewing. Anyone who isn’t a fan of orange would definitely not find that as appealing as I do.
The taste is definitely not as strong as the smell as others have already mentioned. It is a very mild citrus flavor and not much else. I like a strong cup of tea so this is not really my ideal match so I added a little agave to see if that helps it.
The agave did give the tea a little more depth and I think it is the best approach to making this tea. I still couldn’t pick out any honeybush but the aftertaste is mellower than the citrus so i assume that was the honeybush. Overall a decent tea but nothing I would buy personally.
