I received a wonderful surprise package in the mail yesterday, and this was one of the teas in there. I had a cup last night before dinner, and was pleasantly surprised at how delicious it is! The dry blend smells sweet and savory, which is initially a little odd. While it’s steeping, however, there is a scent of warm orange juice. I was worried that it would be greasy since I’ve had that experience with other Teavana blends, but it’s not at all! The tea liquor is a little cloudy, but is a pretty pale yellow color. There is a strong citrus flavor with a very light sage finish. The aftertaste is of fresh orange and pineapple and is so refreshing! This is one of those teas that I would’ve never picked out for myself, so a big thank you to Serenity for introducing me to this delightful little tea! I can easily say that this is my favorite Teavana blend and I am already tempted to go purchase some!

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
