Meh – this was okay. It kind of tasted like watered down orange juice with a bit of spice. Maybe I needed to steep it a bit longer. It wasn’t horrible it was just – okay.

Providence Alaska Medical Center serves this tea in their cafeteria. I usually don’t like herb tea, since I like my black tea base (and adding milk to tea, which is difficult with some herbals). This really could have done with some black tea, in my opinion. It smells lovely, but the taste is a bit dull and bitter. I could drink this again, but it wouldn’t be my first choice.
They only teas that my current workplace provides are Bigelow brand, so I’ve been revisiting the ones I’m familiar with and trying a couple new ones. Orange and Spice sounds like something I’d like, but the flavor if this is frankly, well… dreadful.
It smells odd. A bit like a craft store in October. Tastes spicy, but the orange fruitiness comes off as strangely medicinal. Now that I’m looking at the ingredients list again, I think I can safely say that I should probably stay away from any teas with chicory in them, and it’s probably unfair of me to go on here and rate any chicory tea. I’m hard pressed to describe the flavor of chicory because I hate it so much.
