I found this tea (and several other Hediard teas) at Homegoods of all places, which I have randomly found other good teas at awesome prices like Fachon and Kusmi! If you are a Halloween enthusiast like me (hands down best holiday EVER) then Homegoods is also your spot for great finds. Tea AND Halloween?! How could it get any better?! I failed the test of tea temptation that day and left the store with with several tins at $8 a piece.
Dry, this tea has the aroma of candied orange peel rounded out by vanilla. There is supposed to be lavender as well, but I’m not able to detect it. Once steeped, the flavors lighten up significantly. I can pick out the citrus in the back of the sip and the aftertaste. There is a smoothness in the flavor that I attribute to the vanilla and I think I get some floral hints, but it’s hard to know for sure. I drank most of this cup during my busy morning and am now trying to write a note off the cooled remains of my cup. I think this one is my favorite so far of the Hediard teas I picked up and I look forward to trying it cold like the other reviewer mentioned.
