Another comforting tea, this time from my childhood. One of the teas my mom always had around, and one of my first exposures to tea. This is a guilty pleasure, purely because of sense-memory. I know there are plenty of other, better blackteawithorangespice combinations out there, but…it’s kind of like Alpha-Bits. Older and presumably wiser, I know that I don’t want to know what’s in those marshmallow chunks…but they still taste good as they chalkily deliquesce in my mouth, you know? ;)

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 30 sec

My mom always kept this around, too! It’s been a lonnnng time since I’ve had it, though.

I think I gave in and bought a box…mmm, maybe 5 months ago? Finished it fairly quickly, especially with how much tea I tend to drink in a day. I keep looking for nice black/orange spice blends. And I find them, but they’re not the same. XD It’s kinda trashy, I know, but comforting at the same time.

I’d never drink it every day, though. Only when in the mood for nostalgia.
