Orange is the new black everyone!

I am on an orange slice kick again. I added a slice of orange to a cup of this tea. It is a delicious balance of sweet orange, and dark, malty, black tea. It is quite a bit sweeter than usual with the orange mixed in with the natural sweetness of the tea. Just enjoying the day today!

Neat idea :)

Adding an orange slice is an interesting idea. I don’t like lemon in my teas, but I can see where orange with some of the darker ones would be nice.

Profile

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
