I love this tea with tad of honey, Starbucks has discontinued it. Anyone know where you can purchase it?
Best part of this tea is its real orange smell that has not been colluded by Cinnamon or many other spices. Now this same thing is put off for when the flavour is concerned. Its more on the fruity side for me than being a tea. This tea is also not so forgiving on steeping time, blame on the orange peel in it.
Well I discovered this on accident one day when I forgot that I made tea. So I come downstairs in my robe and discover my tea brewing along side my stainless steel stove. I go over take out the bag and have a sip. The tea was colder than normal, but it tasted much better. Due to the fact that the teas temperature was reduced, the acidity from the orange was cut down and also diminished some of that powerful orange taste. After doing this I decided to make some more to see if it was coincidence, it wasn’t though.
I really don’t know how I feel about this one. And I’m sipping it right now. My first reaction was- blech! This is the 2nd revived tazo I’ve tried, and I’m not sure they improved on their original formula. I’ve gotten more used to the taste, but that taste is not orange. Lemongrass maybe? I probably won’t buy it at a starbucks again.
This tea was really pleasant with the fault of having a little funky orange aftertaste. Didn’t last long though. The smell is just wonderful. I found myself just inhaling the orange spicy aroma every time I took a sip. With the taste and pleasant aroma I can forgo the aftertaste and for sure have it again.
It went very well with my pumpkin loaf
This is a green tea, so I prepared it as such, with lower water temp and less steeping time. It isn’t the best I’ve ever had, but my experience was not as negative as that of other reviewers. Liquor color was a gentle, light orange/green. Flavor was sweet, very slightly vegetal, with an orange finish.
