Recent Tasting Notes


Black tea with oranges and who knows what else, the can says it’s got a vodka-like aroma and notes of orange and grapefruit, and they’re really not wrong. Described by a family member as the “Screwdriver” of teas, as it smells just like the popular mixed drink.

Once it’s brewed, however, the story changes. I tried it at 6 minutes (two above the encouraged 4 minute steep time) and it’s still a tad weak for my tastes. Tastes like standard black tea at first, but the finish is all oranges all the time. It’s like drinking warm orange juice, but with a tea twist. A great accompaniment to breakfast. I enjoyed this one, but need to let it steep a little longer next time.
