Orange you glad you bought this tea?
Wow I was at the mall already doing stuff, I had no plans of going in to Davids as I had already done my tea shopping, I was running ahead of schedule so I decided a nice cup of tea would be an awesome treat. As usual I was smelling a bunch of the tea’s killing some time when this guy caught my eye, and nose!
Dry the leaves are small and black, quite similar looking to most black tea leaves. It has an amazing citrus smell, heavy on the orange smell with some slight lemon notes in the mix. While steeping the tea has a definite orange smell that is just utterly delicious smelling, even more so then when the tea is dry.
The final brew of this tea is very dark, even darker then some of my black teas; however when you hold it up to a strong enough light you can see it is actually a very dark red color. It has an amazing orange/citrus taste to it, there is licorice root that may contribute to the citrus taste but it certainly doesn’t give the tea a licorice taste. Overall I am in love with this tea, its horribly addictive and tasty it has certainly won a lifetime spot in my cupboard.
