Oh yum! It’s not to rare to see a tea paired with orange, but this is lovely c: A much deeper orange flavour, the kind that really fills your mouth. The tart hibiscus and sweet licorice is what hits the tongue first and then that deep orange taste takes over. The pu’erh gives it depth. And all those added oil extracts make this super citrusy. It all really compliments each other quite nicely. I really don’t want to add anything to this tea (no milk, sugar, agave, etc). It’s fine the way it is…which is rare for me as I always want to make everything into a latte or sugar it up.
The name couldn’t be more appropriate either. I love watching how much it bleeds through the basket in my clear glass mug c: So much colour!
There’s a lot more fruity orange going on here than DT’s chocolate orange pu’erh tea which I appreciate. I didn’t want the same tea minus an ingredient.
Really works for a second or third steeping too – super awesome thing I discovered about pu’erhs now that I’m more into them.
Overall, it’s a like! It’s hard to go wrong with a orange blend tea c:
