29 Tasting Notes
I’ve been hunting for a spiced orange tea for a while after being served some awhile ago. I’ve always been disappointed, even if the tea was good, it just wasn’t quite right. Lala sent me some of this in a swap. This is it!! This is what I’ve been looking for! I’m so excited, this is the best orange tea I’ve had. Nice sweet orange with the perfect blend of spices. Everything works well together. The juicy sweetness of the orange is supported by the spices, not overshadowed by them.
Sinfully good! The smell when dry was tart so I was a little worried, but there was no reason to be the vanilla balanced it out well. Creamy, fruity, goodness! As it cooled it was like biting into a freshly pealed apple skin, makes me wonder how this would taste iced?
I expected to love this tea. It’s ok but not great. It lacks the orange flavor I expected. I could smell it when I opened the baggie so I thought the orange would be the prominent taste. Its just not there. Once steeped I couldn’t even smell orange just a spicy sweetness. Now as a spiced black it was good, had a nice flavor and I enjoyed it. But I rated it on being a orange tea and this just wasn’t orange.
This is the perfect balance of flavor. I can taste it all! Sometimes with a flavored tea there’s so much going on that one flavor over shadows the other, not with this tea! I used just a little sugar and this taste like raspberry pie ala-mode from the amish country. They put a layer of caramel on the bottom of the crust then the berry filling and whipped cream on top. Yes! Raspberry pie with a cup of black tea is exactly how this taste. Yummy!!
This was my first matcha and it was so good!! I followed the instructions and made it all 3 ways.
Cold brew :
Yummmm, I could drink that on a hot day all day long.
Hot brew :
Oh yes Heaven! yes this is the way to have it. Just creamy, vanilla, yummieness!!!!
This was great also. I could see myself having this in the mornings when I don’t like something to heavy.
Meh, not inpressed. It was week, even after steeping 10 min. it couldn’t hold up to a little milk,the flavors was hidden. I’m sorry, if you cant handle a little milk and sugar you can’t be called Chai! If I tried to drink it plain the black tea just wasn’t strong enough. I will use this for the kids – they’ll drink anything!
