I spent another day at the library and as a treat while taking a break I purchased a cup of tea made with the Keurig Brew K-cup. This tea was Mandarin Orange Spice Herb Tea by Celestial Seasonings. The tea’s K-cup was placed in the Keurig Brew K-cup and a cup placed underneath it while the water dispenses with the tea. I think it took about 30 seconds.

Tea’s color is dark and malt like but not as dark as Goya malt per se. Tea’s aroma is bold/roasted and orange in scent. Taste wise the tea is smooth and very citrusy from the mandarin orange and spice. I don’t know, something about this cup did not strike me well.

I think that ones’ mood along with a cup of tea goes hand in hand; nothing was done differently in fixing the tea so it should have been fine but the taste I was left with was not to my liking.

Tea’s color was fine, malty amber in color; the aroma was of orange but not of zesty fruitiness and yet the taste seems to reeks (over drip) of the orange flavoring. I am saying that I like mandarin orange but not as tea I guess, well not this cup of tea. Sorry!

If you truly appreciate tea, the Keurig machine isn’t the way to show love.

That being said, if you have a Keurig machine at work, and enjoy capitalizing on as much free drinks as you can, Mandarin Orange Spice Herb Tea is a great non-caffeine choice after drinking three cups of free Keurig coffee.

Strong citrus scent and tangy flavor, I enjoy this tea in the afternoon as a pick-me-up with a piece of chocolate or toasted seaweed. Trust me, they go great together.

The low rating is from this truth: instant gratification tea never tastes as good as steeped leaves.

In conclusion, enjoy your Keurig machine and pick Mandarin Orange, but let’s be honest—it’s not the real thing.

I got this when I wasn’t feeling well with a cold.

I first thought there would be more of a spicy kick in this tea. But the Mandarin orange flavor was really over powering. Which is surprising because I do like oranges for that extra boost of vitamin C. But not in my tea.

Overall it was okay, but just not my top favorite. Or “Oh! I want to buy that again!!”. Plus if you like milk or cream in your tea, the milk or cream looks like you poured and stirred in coconut flakes in this tea. Just a warning.

I’d prefer to have some type of leaf tea blended in, as i have had before, because the orange-y flavor was too sharp for me, and at times, bitter.
