Medium to dark oxidised. Clean plum and lychee at the start, developing into roastyness. Crisp apple notes in the roasty finish. Gentle spice and astringency on the aftertaste.

A good loose-leaf green tea, softened by vanilla – quite biscuity and soft, smelling and tasting strongly of marzipan. I really like this as a late morning or mid afternoon tea – it would taste great with a delicate lemon shortbread. I wouldn’t drink it in great quantity, but nice for a relaxing moment.
Just a shame I only got a taster amount of it from Tea Shop in Madrid – I can’t exactly pop back for more!
Last year my family and I went to Spain for our summer vacation. I had a really good time being a tourist and enjoying everything Spain had to offer (delicious food, art, culture, etc). But, one of the most exciting parts of the trip (for me that is..) was finding the “Tea Shop” in the Madrid airport. Sadly, it was at the end of the trip and I was about out of my Euros so I was only able to purchase 1 tea… This one!
I had made it once a looong time ago, and it got lost in my tea cabinet. Since I am on vacation today and it is beautiful and sunny outside I made an entire pitcher full of this tea iced! : )
I used 8 teaspoons of this tea for 64oz of boiling hot water. I let it cool down (didn’t actually ice it, just cooled it down and refrigerated it) and sweetened it with 3 packets of Splenda.
The dry leaves have fewer pieces of carrot and orange in it than the picture suggests. The smell of the leaves is bursting with orange smell. Smells just like fresh orange juice!
The resulting brew smells just like the leaves with a bit of rooibos in the background. The color is dark orange, a fitting color for orange tea!
The flavor is what blew me away. Just enough sour to make me think of fresh oranges and enough creaminess (from the rooibos) to make it enjoyable as a tea. And the best part, in my opinion, was that you could actually taste the carrots! I love orange juice with carrot juice! It was a pleasant surprise when I found the carrot taste, I actually wasn’t expecting it to be there!
I am glad I went ahead and bought 100g of this tea! I will miss it when it is gone… Maybe one day when I go to Spain again I will be able to get some more…
Ok, time to stop writing about tea and go out and enjoy the sun with my boyfriend! : )
smells great! very tasty
No notes yet.
Tsp. Raw Sugar + Tsp. Spun Clover Honey = Too sweet. It is an overly saturated vanilla flavor.
Tsp. Raw Sugar + Tsp. 2% Milk = The creme accents the green tea very well.
Tsp. Spun Clover Honey + Tsp. 2% Milk = Just right; the spun honey has the same thickness as the milk making this a not too sweet, creamy and light.
Overall; It’s always nice, but when sweetened properly is really warm and light, but on the first cup the vanilla flavor was a bit too strong and saturated. It is a really good evening tea.
Amazing Tea, my favourite tea of all times. Only slod from November to February, so I need to buy for the whole year.
I drink it mainly after lunch and/or dinner as I find it very tasy and it really helps me with digestion
Got a packet of this and expected it to be as old and flavorless as the other “free” teas left by the previous tenant of my apartment. Luckily, it wasn’t at all! It’s quite tasty and a good black tea. Something about it made it summer-y tasting to me. I’m going to search out this tea company and order some more, it’s really a great cup of flavored black tea. (Unfortunately, as I drank it yesterday, I don’t remember the exact flavors I picked out — just that it was good!)
