So its not my fave, but not the worst tea that I have tried. I like it even a bit better than Refresh, though that one is still good as well. This tea doesn’t have any particular scent, or really any at all, or I’m coming down with a cold, not sure, but I didn’t smell anything. I decided to try this one as per the recommendation of a friend, it’s not bad, considering it is a TAZO, and for some reason I usually just cannot tolerate TAZO teas. But this one is pretty tolerable, it is not overpowering like the rest of the teas in this company ( that I’ve tried). I would have this again if forced to buy a drink at starbucks. The taste is subtle, but then again I barely had the bag in due to the fact that TAZO teas seem to steep really fast and leave bitter tastes. So I literally had it in for like a minute and it tasted fine.

Don’t love it, Don’t hate it, but it defiantly needs a 1/2 pump/squeeze of agave syrup to make it drinkable. This one is going into the tea cupboard at work.

I wanted to try Orange Blossom as I’m around Tazo tea all of the time. So far, I really only enjoy the Passion tea and only on a rare occasion. I didn’t find that this tea had a whole lot of flavor. I could also detect the licorice and you know how I feel about that. I’m glad I tried this tea so I know not to have it again.

Wife wanted Starbuck’s. I thought sure I can have a nice cup of tea. Wrong. Wish I had read the reviews here first. As a general rule I avoid tea with more than say 3 ingredients. This rule has served me well. To bad I violated it. Another rule is tea shouldn’t be served in paper cups. The leaf looks interesting in the sachet. It smells interesting – kind of orangey. The taste at first was too bland. I can’t taste any tea. Put the bag in to steep longer. Now the fennel and licorice overwhelm causing my mouth to pucker and I still can’t taste tea.

Smells amazing. That’s about it. I wasn’t to pleased with the deceptive nature of this tea. With what appears to be a hint chamomile and a few Goji berries this tea is easily over steeped. Perhaps I shall give this one another try in the future with a lesser steep time. Flavor over all misses orange as it’s primary target and we’re left with just the taste of chamomile to keep us entertained. If you like that then give this a try. If not, don’t be deceived by the aroma!

I’m undecided about my thoughts on this tea in a way. The combination of the green, the orange, and the jasmine makes for a truly divine brew that’s floral and full, without delving into being perfume-y. But the second time I tried this, I really noticed the chamomile in it. Chamomile is not something I appreciate in my tea at all. I think if this tea didn’t have chamomile, it could be perfect, but the chamomile gives it a discordant note that interrupts the otherwise stellar flavour. I had it with sweetener and definitely wouldn’t recommend it without that. The orangey, floral flavour may seem milk-friendly, but I’d try it without it first if I were you.

I said it isn’t perfume-y, but in one way it is: there’s so many ingredients that come together to create the flavour, but like a well-blended perfume, it can be hard to single these out from the overarching sense of rich flavour. I got mostly orange and jasmine, which may be good, because I don’t want fennel or chamomile or tarragon in my tea. The fragrance of this tea is just wonderful.

I absolutely love this tea! The fragrance calls to me. It absolutely drapes your soul in warmth and happiness. Now that being said. It has a wonderful peppery orange flavor. Guaranteed to wake you up in the morning (if that is what you are looking for). I am not very sensitive to caffeine however. I personally drink this any time of the day. Its great iced after brewing also! Which for me is really the mark of a fantastically versatile tea. =)

I have replaced my recently discontinued tea with this tea. I used to drink Lipton Orange and Spice tea. It was the first tea I drank when I was a little girl. My mother used to make it when I didn’t feel well.

I added 2 little packets of sugar and iced this. Best tea I’ve ever tasted…

Steep it in very little water, then submerge the tea in ice, don’t just add ice to the top.

I bought this as an alternative to the Tazo Zen I’d gotten as an office tea at a new short-term contract. (I don’t really stock up my tea collection at work until I’m sure I’ll be there for a while.) I like orange blossom scents in perfumes, so I thought why not in tea? Also, I enjoy jasmine tea straight, so why not in an herbal blend?

The scent of the unbrewed tea in the bag was cloying. It was very sweet, and the berries and orange were pretty overpowering. It also had the scent of fennel — a bit like the dishes of fennel and candy at Indian restaurants — and since I don’t usually like licorice or fennel in my teas (I won’t drink Stash for this reason), I suddenly found myself regretting the purchase. I decided to try it anyhow, though.

Because it’s a green, I only brewed it for about 2 minutes. I prefer my teas light, so I removed the bag as soon as I saw the color really spread throughout the cup. The result was very light and floral. It tasted mainly of chamomile, with very difficult to taste hints of orange and berry and jasmine, and a distinct aftertaste of licorice (the fennel and tarragon coming through) followed by orange oil. The taste of the green tea was pretty much overpowered by the herbal elements.

It was an okay taste — there wasn’t too much licorice flavor, it wasn’t overpoweringly sweet, and I enjoy the flavor of chamomile. I’ve been very slowly using up the bags I purchased, but I doubt I’ll be getting a second box.
