drank Orange Dulce by Mighty Leaf Tea
92 tasting notes

2nd infusion: no sweetener added. Liquor is just about as dark as the first cup, and smells less sweet—good, because I’m still recovering from that last cup.Waiting, waiting waiting for it to cool down…

Ah! Here’s that orange dreamsicle. It does smell like one. For some reason, I can almost smell something hot chocolately…maybe it’s just the sweetness from the jasmine.

Taste is lacking. Or maybe I’m just used to the over-sweet, too-strong, gag-worthy last cup I made. Adding a dash of Splenda…better. The tea still has that thick mouthfeel. It’s very smooth, although I’m not sure I like it. Literally no astringency or bitterness, which is impressive for a black tea, I suppose. I’m still reminded of a tin of Earl Grey Le Creme by Portsmouth that I lost somewhere, except I’m pretty sure I prefer that over this.

I don’t mind Orange Dulce, but I’m still not entirely sure why people go crazy over it. I’ve tried it a few times now and every time I hope that it will finally start to live up to the hype. It never does.

Bethany: nods I think I spoiled it by adding too much Splenda, but even with out it, it was just too purfumy and I couldn’t taste enough “tea”, if that makes any sense. I felt the same about Hot Cinnamon Spice…far too sweet, and I had to double check to make sure it wasn’t an herbal tea!
