Afternoon tea time with a cup of this and a slice of orange cranberry bread. The weather has turned cold and rainy, and I’m thankful to be inside with a warm cup of tea. It’s almost that time of the year to start using the fireplace!
I’ll admit that I wasn’t expecting much out of this tea. Even when I opened the wrapper, I was about knocked over by the overwhelmingly strong, artificial orange scent. The tea itself had a malty aroma with a hint of juicy orange – much better! The flavor was a nice black tea base with a sweet orange finish. There is a fresh, juicy orange aftertaste that is dead-on with a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice. We went to the fair last weekend and had fresh orangeade, and this tea reminds me very much of that. It’s perfect with a little milk and sweetener. I am definitely going to check the next time I’m at the grocery store to see if they have some of this. It would be wonderful for a breakfast tea, and I’d love to surprise my fiancee with some of this since he loved the orangeade at the fair so much!
