This tea has made me like chamomile. Smells soo good. The boy and I enjoyed it with sugar and a few drops of cream after a lovely dinner of homemade chicken & spinach pizza that I made. :) It was the perfect dessert since we were stuffed, and the chamomile had the boy out like a light!
It feels like autumn outside. :D
Received this as a sample. Smelled strongly of orange peels, so I was perplexed to not see orange peels listed as an ingredient. As it steeped I knew those were indeed orange peels floating to the top, so I went to check the website and the description mentions orange peels.
I’m with others, this is very orange spice. But there’s a strong dark caramel note. It’s nice on it’s own but I added some brown sugar and a few drops of cream. Oooh. This is unlike anything I’ve ever had. This is probably the nicest spiced tea I’ve had, and definitely the best orange spice tea I’ve had. The spices are complex and very nicely balanced. Just the right hint of cinnamon. Smells and tastes very buttery. This is growing on me with every sip! Yum! Like everyone’s saying though, definitely think orange spice. Buttery caramely orange spice. This seems like it would go great with a splash of rum.
Iced matcha latte made with coconut milk. So great. I had some inflammation in my body going on from wisdom teeth and PMS and what not, and after I drank this I felt soo much better. Didn’t have to take a pain killer. The power of tea. c:
Sitting on my kitchen floor drinking this.
I just spent the night making a delicious soup and chocolate chip muffins.
And then I collapsed on the floor. And I am sitting here chatting via interwebz and drinking my beloved Luscious Watermelon iced tea.
I am too tired to move. Someone bring me a pillow? zzZzZZZZZZzZzzzzz
I disagree with the bad reviews, I think this tea’s really great. Make sure it has room to expand because it expands a lot! And it’s really beautiful. Would be lovely in a glass teapot.
The lemon myrtle and jasmine do take the forefront and there’s a hint of orange oil. I like the oolong base, it’s light and refreshing. Like the description says, it’s quite rejuvenating. I had received this as a sample and I’ll be purchasing more of it next order.
Smells amazing in the tin. Like coffee and caramel and chocolate and vanilla. MMMmmm.
Steeped in hot cocoa. MOCHA DELICIOUSNESS! There’s a hint of almonds that makes it sort of reminiscent of amaretto. This. is. so. good.
(I’m a huge coffee fan in addition to tea.)
“Chicory is well known for its toxicity to internal parasites. Chicory (especially the flower) was used as a treatment in Germany, and is recorded in many books as an ancient German treatment for everyday ailments. It is variously used as a tonic and as a treatment for gallstones, gastro-enteritis, sinus problems and cuts and bruises. (Howard M. 1987). Chicory contains inulin, which may help humans with weight loss, constipation, improving bowel function, and general health. In rats, it may increase calcium absorption and bone mineral density.”
Cool! Love yummy things that are also good for you. :)
Made a BIG pitcher of this today. :D Almost out of my first 250g bag! Oh noes.
