I bought this tea on a whim – I was ordering from 52teas and needed an even number of bags purchased. But I’m glad I did. This is one mellow tea! It’s citrus-y and apple-y, with a touch of spice. I can’t say it tastes like a certain spice, just spicy. It smells as good as it tastes. It’s refreshing and bright, like sunshine after a rainy day. I also like the green tea base – which is grassy and crisp. All around a good tea.
Mellie's Spiced Orappangele
I think it should be pronounced “or-AH-pang-ul-ee” though that sounds nothing like orange or apple.
Many of you know I’ve been struggling lately with a nasty back injury. Well, I got a bit of help from one of Zoomdweebie’s former regular customers and all around awesome person, Mellie, who helped me figure out what to blend for this week.
You may not be able to compare apples and oranges, but we can sure blend them together! Here’s our amazing Chinese sencha green tea blended with real dried apple bits, orange peel, cinnamon chips and even some freeze-dried orange sections. This is going to blow you away.
As always, get it while you can; it’s not going to last long. Anyone who has not received a reply to an email recently, please bear with me. I’m getting caught back up again now, and will be in touch soon.
