Love, love, love this tea! It’s wonderfully refreshing. I think it’d be equally as delicious iced, but I haven’t had the chance to try it out yet.

The tea smells strongly of orange, but it mellows out and balances perfectly with jasmine, lemon myrtle, and oolong after brewed. I’ve gotten 5 amazingly flavorful steeps out of this by adding one minute to each successive steep. The orange fades away and the lemon shines through more each time.

I love watching the leaves unfurl as they steep. This tea expands A LOT. One of DAVIDsTEA’s perfect spoonfuls in 14oz. of water looks like:

Bio

I’m a Floridian living in Kansas and currently pursuing a physics Ph.D. by day (…and by night, who am I kidding?) with an immense love for all things tea.

Rating Scheme:

<50 = Undrinkable.
50-59 = Drinkable, but not my cuppa.
60-69 = Decent, but nothing to write home about.
70-79 = Good tea that I drink occasionally. Probably will not restock when it runs out.
80-89 = Very tasty. May or may not restock when it runs out.
90-100 = Delicious. A staple in my collection.
