The aroma of this tea is fantastic. One of the best orange spice teas that I think I’ve ever had the opportunity to smell! I almost want to set a bowl of this out in the living room so that the house smells like this! Orange-y, cinnamon-y and cloves! It smells divine!
It tastes good too! The orange and spices are strong but do not overwhelm the cup. The black tea is strong and delicious. The overall effect is very comforting which is nice after spending the afternoon at the mall.
Yum! So good. To make a good thing even better, I added a little bit of Dark Chocolate Breve Creme to this. Now, I have chocolate coconut cream pie in my teacup…
This was the 3rd Tea of Christmas … you can read my review here:
This is one really awesome blend!
A lot of different tastes in the cup, primarily I taste hints of citrus and licorice, but there is a nice smoky spiced undertone to it too. Very good! Not very much in the way of the chocolate flavor, but, the other flavors going on are delicious and intriguing. Spicy, but not too spicy, sweet… but not too sweet. Very well-balanced.
I really am liking what I’m seeing from this tea company so far. Cool packaging and interesting and very DIFFERENT blends.
While I was steeping this tea, I went to the mailbox to see if the mail had arrived, and yippee! It did… my order from Damn Fine Tea is here! YAY! Wanna guess what I’ll be steeping next?
This is actually the last that I have of this, and I will be needing to order more the next time I order from Lupicia (it’s getting to be an every other month kind of thing).
Delicious and smooth. I am really enjoying this today. Warm and comforting.
