Tea #2 for the night.
So I’ve had this sitting around in my ‘to try’ bin since I ordered it my first Della Terra order once upon a time. /hangs head/ To be honest, I’m not sure why I bought it in the first place since I’m not particularly fond of oranges, though I do like them/juice/etc occasionally. I guess it was because I was still new to tea and didn’t really know that orange in tea was so, well, unpleasant for me. But I like to at least try a tea before putting it in the swap bin, because I’ve been surprised (not often) before, so I gave this a shot.
The dry leaf smells very strongly of candied oranges, those sugared gummy oranges you can get in the 2 for $5 bags on the checkout aisles of the grocery. The taste, unfortunately, is very like eating those same gummy oranges. Very artificial. No discernible caramel taste to this, but then, I wasn’t really expecting much. And I can’t really tell the base tea under all this fake orange. Tried this with a bit of Truvia and it didn’t do much more than make the orange taste more artificial.
I probly should’ve tried a second brew, but I didn’t even finish my first cup, so I certainly wasn’t going to give a second one a shot.
