I opened the bag and it smelled like peeling an orange. Which was fantastic. I love oranges. I brewed the tea and it smelled like…tea and an orange? I drank it, and I tasted…oolong. With maybe a hint of orange.

And then I burped and it was all oranges.

I am very confused as to how this tea hides all the orange taste while it’s in my mouth, and produces it in such copious quantities when it is anywhere other than my mouth. But there is no doubt that there are oranges in there, because I could smell them, and I could taste them – after I’d drunk the tea.

I’ll drink my way through this sample, and be confused by it, but I don’t think I’ll order this one again.

Flavors: Orange, Tea

95-100: I will keep this on my shelf at all times if possible.
85-94: This tea is probably in active rotation in my house and getting drunk a lot (or it’s about to be).
75-84: I liked it. I will probably keep a small tin of it around.
65-74: I liked it. I might keep a small tin of it around, but I will not mourn its loss if it disappears from sale.
50-64: Meh.
0-49: No.

I like real tea (camellia sinensis). Black with milk and no sugar, unless it’s a really froofy chai latte. Green with no milk.

I’ve discovered through trial and error that I really don’t like Rooibus, even when it’s mixed with black tea. (Sadly.)

Herbal tisanes are not out of the running, but I have to be in the right mood and they have to be sufficiently strongly powered that I don’t miss the tea leaves.

By preference, I drink loose-leaf, but I will drink bagged tea if it’s good enough.

My icon is a piece of fantastic art by Ursula Vernon called Cattail Tea.
