Okay so there is a certain orange flavouring in teas that I really dislike (when not paired with a black base, apparently). It’s kindof a spicy orange rind note, which I often find in teas that are a less than entirely fresh, but sometimes as an intentional addition.
This was the aroma/taste that hit me when I first tasted my tea. So not my thing!
But then, as I got through the cup, it kinda grew on me. I think that the blend of Ceylon and Chinese black teas must be a good match for that particular flavouring.
My cuppa had a smooth creaminess to it, and went down surprisingly easy without any milk or sugar, which I fully expected would be necessary given my flavouring bias!
It isn’t entirely orange, or orange rind though, and I’ve yet to put my finger on what that extra something is. Anyone have any thoughts?
Back when I was a tea newbie, I bought 100g of an orange flavoured mate without trying any first… and oh boy did I ever hate it. So gross, in my opinion that is. I did manage to find it a good home! Perhaps it was the combo of orange and mate I dislike. and orange and white tea! (yes I mean you…Tangerine somethingorother from Kally. Blech)
Anyhow, I’d definitely try this again, and could actually see myself keeping a stock in my cupboard. Not as my house “orange black” of course, as this one seems to stand on it’s own.
Thanks to my Mentor (in HR) for buying me a cuppa at Avenue Bistro Cafe :)

It’s a blood orange tea! They taste so much better than regular old orange tea to me. They are sweeter, it sometimes almost tastes like there’s just a hint of red berries to them.

Yeah I agree for the most part Momo, I was a little confused cuz the flavour is so familiar, and I dislike it paired with other bases! but oh yeah this was tasty :)

I’ll look for the red berry part next time!

I think a moro blood orange definitely has almost the tartness of a raspberry to it instead of just orange. I’d think that’s the type that’d be used in tea, I have a Fauchon one where the blood orange is just like that, soooo good!
