drank Orange U Slim by Teas Etc
251 tasting notes

The orange taste is just a hint, sort of in the back of the mouth, but its definetly there. It brewed to a burnt orange/ochre color…much lighter and not nearly as “red” as normal black teas, and not the pale yellow straw/green I associate with green and white teas. Complex flavor, but not in the class of some of the Darjeeling’s I’ve been sampling lately. Slightly tannic, especially as it cools, and/but not heavily astringent. Mildly grassy smell when steeping. Used 1 heaping teaspoon, as suggested on the sample

I remember when I discovered that there was more to tea than hot or iced. I was given a loose tea sampler (M.T.W.) and a stainless steel tea ball as a Christmas gift many years ago. That was the start of what will be a life-long love of fine tea. I discovered Steepster from a blog entry on the Mark. T. Wendell website…and have, from Steepster, discovered even more fine teas and vendors. I decided to post my thoughts in the hope that others discover a good, fine tea.
