This smells like orange juice! Super sweet citrus. I sniffed it once and knew drinking this straight would NOT go well — I love citrus in moderation, but this blend would have been too much for me! I mixed it with some floral Tie Guan Yin and … sigh it was perfect.
The tea carried a nice fresh orange flavor into the vegetal qualities of the Tie Guan Yin. Almost candyish, but not quite! The aroma was subtly sweet and not overly cloying or artificial.
Lovely tea for me to mix into my other oolongs when I need a little bit of a pick-me-up, but certainly not for me to drink straight. I’m certain my citrus-loving friends would enjoy this one unaltered though!
