I’m going to withhold rating this until I give it another chance or two. No scent at all when I opened the box, but after steeping it smelled very promising. Lots of orange in the steam. I left the bag in the mug and let it cool a bit.

It tasted like soap.

I had just washed my mug so it’s POSSIBLE that I didn’t rinse it well enough, but I was still so discouraged that even after washing again I wasn’t ready to give it another try yet.

On the plus side, no hibiscus.

Icky, soap. Hands down my least favourite flavour in tea.

LOL! I haven’t tried it again but plan to soon. I will be sure to let everyone know whether it redeemed itself.

No soap, but no taste to speak of, either.
