Hello! Welcome to a tea that Auggy sent me!

Right, so if you take Rishi’s Citron Oolong, and you take away the hint of lime that you get in that, and you replace it with a hint of orange, you would have this tea.

They’re cousins! Identical cousins!

I’m not going to copy the entire review I wrote on Citron Oolong, but to summarize – light, refreshing, citrusy, with a hint of Fruity Pebbles/Froot Loops. The flavor comes through more at the back of my tongue, and if I can suck in air over the liquid. Very similar to Adagio’s Citron Green, but not nearly as mouth drying, so I like it better for it.

I had been thinking about ordering some Citron Oolong, but I held off this time and I’m glad I did, because this tea also runs quite a bit cheaper [$14.75 for 4 oz. of Orange Blossom vs. $19.50]. Any differences between the two are so negligible to me that it can’t justify the near $5 difference. Bumping Citron Oolong down and having this one take its place.

Can you taste the tea in this one?

Not really. It’s a very light tea, but the citrus flavors really drown out anything else in there for me. I think I get just a hint of sweetness from the osmanthus flowers, but that’s it.

Glad to be your Froot Loops provider!

That was my huge disappointment w/ citron oolong. I rehomed it, but was kinda wishing I had it while I was sick, would added some ginger and white tea to it. But to keep a tea that I’d only drink when I’m sick seemed kinda pointless and a waste.

Ooh, I’ve been dying to try this (I own far too many orange blossom perfumes). Sounds yummy!

Yay for the Fruit Loops continuing! I’ll have to try the Auggy sample as well. :)

@Auggy Thanks, Toucan Auggy!

@Cofftea I like that it’s refreshing. I’ll probably like it more during the summer, though. I like this one just a smidge better than the Citron Oolong, so I’ll probably end up ordering it instead.

@Shanti Hee, don’t expect a lot of flavor, though! Honestly, it’s really very light. [Somewhat related, I love perfumes with citrus notes in it.]

@teaplz Oooh, do it! I’m interested to see what you make of it.
