On the nose, there is a distinct tangy orange aroma, notably from the Italian red orange. As I move on to drink the tea, I would like to note the smooth, light body and clean finish. I compare the finish to that of a very light orange sorbet, meant to cleanse the mouth for the next course. The flavor is a light green tea that is mellowed out and I would say complimented with the safflower petals and orange. The triad of ingredients allows this tea to be a fine experience from start to finish.
Steeped for 4 minutes under hot water (165).
