I certainly did not expect this tea to have the sort of punch that it did. The chili drowns out all hints of orange – this can be a good or a bad thing, depending on your taste. My throat was burning for 10 minutes after drinking this, and I only steeped it for 8 minutes – the minimum recommended amount.
Don’t let the sweet aroma of this tea fool you. I found this quite difficult to drink on its own; indeed, it might be best to maybe have some yogurt or white bread to go with this. Then again, if you’re used to spiciness, this is a perfect beverage for a cold day.
