Did this one up in a travel cup for a meeting I had today. Brewed it in a t-sac and left the bag in the entire time. Dry leaf smells lovely and exactly like its name, and in the cab I couldn’t stop smelling the brew.

First sips of the cup had both the orange and the almond flavour and was lovely. As the cup continued (bag in since I couldn’t get it out in the meeting politely) the marzipan began to dominate.

I’m looking forward to trying this one again with an infuser and a shorter steep, and a bit of sugar. I think it’ll help make the orange flavours pop. Not rating yet for that reason.

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.


My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
