This tea is yum!!
It really tastes like an orange creamsicle. In fact I think it may be a little TOO sweet for me. The stevia overpowers the orange somewhat.
I also don’t get the usual scratchiness that I often find with green teas, nor the jittery caffeine buzzzzzzzzz, which is great for me.
One word of advice though, and I am sure it’s already obvious… but don’t buy this tea for the Green factor. I don’t get “green tea” from it at all. No top notes, no finish… the only green thing about it is in the name. A very simple flavour if you ask me. (and I love complex teas, just sayin’)
Would I buy it again? Maybe-but not for the purpose of tea drinking. I may save it for when the weather warms up and make ice cubes or popsicles… which would be a refreshing treat and diabetic friendly (not me, but I have family that is). OR… how about in a martini? yes I think that would be fun, assuming the alcohol doesn’t interact oddly with the stevia.
So for that purpose… maybe I would buy it again- but I wouldn’t be heartbroken if they discontinued this one either.
A mixed review, but then I have mixed feelings about it to!

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
