This tea is another nice presentation of a simple flavouring. It smells and tastes of dried orange with peel use in baking sweetened with dried pineapple which brings out a slight juciness to the flavouring, but the flavour remains unmistakenly orange. The base underneath the tea is a gun powder style green tea with no smokiness. It does provide a medium body and thicker mouth feel to the tea and adds a refreshing note to the flavour. The base tea is sweet with a faint reference to spring greens and just a touch of bitterness. The tea resteeps well with the orange becoming more dominant and with the influence of the base tea beginning to dissipate after the third steep.
