This tea has very strong notes of orange creamsicle. Opening the bag of dry leaves instantly brought me back to those times at Grandma’s when we would eat creamsicles on hot summer days.

It’s a pretty distinctive smell for a black tea – the sweet citrus freshens the rounded black tea flavor profile. My girlfriend said the smell remided her more of Chinese black teas than my usual Ceylons. All in all, it’s a tasty tea and a novel experience. Still, it’s not a staple tea like a Kenilworth estate – more of something to bring out once a week or to pair with food.

Bio

I work as a web coder guy. I eat primal/paleo; I love math, science, gaming, and of course tea. I’ve been drinking tea since I was 3! I started with looseleaf in 2004 and have had lots of fun trying all sorts of new things since then.

I mostly drink black tea, and that usually with milk and sugar. I also enjoy, in more or less descending order:

cooked puers
rooibos, lighter greens, oolongs
whites, raw puers
some other herbals
darker greens
