I like this tea as a general evening I-need-something-herbal tea, but I’ve noticed that it doesn’t hold its flavor very well as the tea cools down.

I am definitely one who favors fruit infused tea. Especially if it’s anything orange flavored. To start off, this tea has a very nice aroma. In my opinion, it doesn’t even need to be sweetened as much as I do with most other teas. Plus it tastes good just chilled with out honey or sugar. Overall I’m very satisfied with the balance of sweet and tart it has to it. It’s great for both relaxing at night and waking up in the morning.
Flavors: Floral, Flowers, Fruity, Orange Blossom
LOVE this one! Like a sort of lemonade…
A bit bitter, but in a good way- tart…orange, rose, and some hints of apple and/or strawberry- maybe it’s peach or papaya or mango? Some sort island fruit…Floral- again, a lemonade kind of taste.
I totally like it! A great, refreshing, morning tea or afternoon tea for when you need a pick-me-up or refreshing. I bet it would taste lovely as iced tea too- though I used to consider iced tea a blasphemy before my obsession began lol

I was lured into buying this tea from Teavana during my last trip there. The store mixed Wild Orange Blossom with Youthberry and it tasted so delicious! So, of course I had to buy both kinds to recreated the flavor sensation (it was cold brewed).
However, when I got home I couldn’t get that same amazing taste. After doing a little research it seems Teavana puts a lot of sugar in their cold brews in the store (something I did not know about) and I don’t want to drink tea that way (too many empty calories!)
Anyways I tried this tea alone and it is kind of bitter. I never tried it with sugar, so maybe that would have helped. However, it is a great tea to use as a mix with other teas. Its very cheap too and I read that other reviewers do the same!
If you like orange, get it and mix it with other teas you enjoy.
Hibiscus! You are the reason I was not too fond of this tea when I first started… but now I better understand you (and can identify you:P). With great care you a a pleasant addition to the world of tea but without it, you can be one grumpy ol’ tartbasket.
This time, I added some sweetener, more leaves, and longer steep time to liven up the tart, almost flat flavors and BAM! This tea is so much better. mm. I really do enjoy the citrusy scent and the almost punchy flavor that this tea has. With some ice, this tea is perfect for a sunny afternoon.

I got this as a sample from my best friend’s mom. My best friend lived with me for a month last year and we had tea together every night after dinner. I inundated her with any tea I could find that sounded interesting in the hopes that she (a coffee drinker) would convert to the fabulous world of tea and it (mostly) worked. She’s been sharing her teas with her mom lately, and I hate that I live so far away now because TEA PARTY!!!
This tea smells and tastes like orange. The first few sips hit you in the back of the throat with a citrus flavor that progresses throughout your whole mouth. It’s not bad, but it comes across as very acidic to me, going bitter as it cools. I don’t hate this tea, and I can easily see where it would be good in blends, but I doubt it’s something I’d keep stocked. A very nice true-to-it’s-name blend though.
