As soon as I opened the bag, I was immediately hit with a lovely citrus smell. This tea smells very strong of citrus, kind of like a combination of orange zest and lemon.

I can’t stress enough how citrusy this tea smells. It is smells VERY citrusy.

I put 1 table spoon in the tea basket, put the basket in the pot, and made an entire pot for everyone at work. As I was pouring the water in from my tea kettle through the infuser, I could really smell orange zest.

I was worried that this tea was going to be bitter. Orange zest in and of itself is bitter. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The tea was not bitter at all, and had a strong citrus flavor. I did not add any sweeteners or honey. I could see a little honey potentially bringing out the flavor of the orange.

When I first sip the tea, I get an orange and lemon taste. However, the aftertaste has slight floral notes that I think make this tea shine.

Overall, I was very impressed with this tea.
