drank Wild Sweet Orange by Tazo
1805 tasting notes

I brewed this in a small pot, so that I could taste it at intervals through the steeping…
The recommended five minute brew-time in an 8 oz mug with boiling water is absolute ridiculousness, as this tea gets strong fast. It was brewed quite strong two minutes in in a 16 oz pot with nearly-boiling water.
Upon tasting this tea, it’s slightly reminiscent of the Orange Spice tea by Bigelow, albeit much, much better. It has an almost-Orange Starburst taste, minus the sour flavour. All around a decent-tasting tea, but not something I would drink daily.

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
