drank Orange Blossom by DAVIDsTEA
94 tasting notes

Wow, this is lovely! Beautiful orange taste, super citrusy with the right amount of vanilla in the background to balance it out. Reminds me a lot of Orange Dolce from Mighty Leaf, which was stronger in taste but I also adored.

Maybe I have a soft spot for orange teas…hmm, I should get more of them!

Thank you to the ever so lovely keychange for this tea! ♥♥♥ You are absolutely wonderful!

@keychange: It couldn’t have been possible without you! :)
@Sil: Give it a try – it’s delicious! If you like citrus tea, you won’t be disappointed.
@Cavo: I just simply adore that picture – it’s partly the reason why I wanted to try the tea haha :P

I love this one, especially for evenings when I don’t want caffeine. It’s rare I find a rooibos tea I like, but this is one. I try to have some on hand all the time for when the mood strikes.

And I love that pic too!

Profile

Bio

My name is Yvonne. I’m 20 and live in a snowy Canadian wasteland known as Manitoba.

I’m relatively new to the loose tea world, although I used to drink generic Red Rose tea constantly. A friend introduced me to a Teavana tea one chilly winter and I got myself slightly intrigued. Went to purchase it myself, used shoddy equipment to prepare it, and was discouraged.

Christmas 2013 rolled around, and despite having an awful holiday for other reasons, I received some of Teavana’s Cha Yen Thai as a gift after asking for chai tea. I went out and bought a proper infuser cup and was instantly hooked. Now my tea collection is steadily growing! I’m obsessed!

I like:
Dessert teas, black teas, oolong, rooibos, pu’erh, mate, chai, chamomile, chocolate, coconut, cinnamon, pineapple, tropical mixes, nutty, sweet, complex flavours, indulgent flavours

I do NOT like:
Green teas, herbal teas, white teas, teas too overbearing with fruit, pure tisane, cloyingly sweet teas, hibiscus, peanuts, burning my mouth

I am lactose intolerant (pretty severely, actually – I do not consume any dairy product) but I find that the miniscule amounts of dairy found in some teas don’t bother me for the most part.

100 – My absolute favourite teas. Without them, I will cry salty tears of despair.

99 – 95 – Cream of the crop, although missing SOMETHING to make them a perfect favourite. Not something I couldn’t possibly live without, but pretty darn close. Lots of teas in this category tend to reach 100 eventually.

95 – 75 – Yummy, but if it disappeared tomorrow I’d quietly mourn it for about 15 minutes and move on to a favourite. Leaves something to be desired.

75 – 50 – Passable, but not by much. Something I’d really have to be in the mood for to drink.

50 and lower – Nope nope nope. Not for me. Probably couldn’t or had a hard time finishing the cuppa. Doooown the sink.
