This is the second I’ve tried of the samples provided to me, and I’m enjoying it quite a bit.
As I said in my previous review, I really like the base they use. It’s a bit malty and is smooth and not a bit bitter if you follow the listed steeping parameters.
Cinnamon is the strongest flavor in this cup, with clove being the second most dominating. It’s almost to a point where without knowing there was orange in the blend, I’d guess otherwise. In the grand scheme of spicing, though, it’s not terribly strong at all. The orange itself doesn’t really kick in until the tail end/aftertaste of the sip. The base is still present with all the mingling flavors.
I think this tea suffers from the same thing as the previous tea I tried in that while the flavors are good, the balance is off. I wanted more peach/apricot and less lemon in the peach apricot tea and I want more orange in my orange spice tea here.
