drank Orange tea by Pickwick
141 tasting notes

I tried this tea this morning. The orange flavor tasted somewhat artificial, even though the flavoring is supposed to be natural. The orange was so strong, that I could not taste the underlying tea, except for a lingering astringency afterward. Wihtout sugar, it was somewhat bitter, like orange peel, but with sugar, it was like drinking hot Tang. I may try brewing this again with a shorter steeping period, or perhaps cold-brewing it.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec

Bio

I am a part time college instructor and also work in human resources in a family company. Apart from a rare cup of Lipton I drank in my parents’ home, I am a newbie to the world of tea. I have enjoyed Twinings and Ahmad bagged teas over the past month, and I am now just beginning to try loose leaf teas from Teavivre, Adagio, and Della Terra.

So far, I prefer black tea to green tea, and prefer to add cream or milk and sweetener to black tea. Unless the tea is white, green, or herbal, you can assume that I have added cream/milk and sugar to the tea in my reviews/ratings.
