13 Tasting Notes
I LOVE this signature, orange-cinnamon tea from Market Spice. The actual store in Pike Place Market in Seattle is a complete gem. The tea is aromatic and sweet- without adding sugar. The sweetness is strange in that after gulping it down, there is no sweet aftertaste, but more of a slight oily sensation. I can see how it might be off-putting initially… but this tea is addicting. Wish I had stocked up on more while I was in Seattle…but bc it is flavored with orange essential oils, its shelf life is shorter than other teas
I was initially skeptical of this tea when I opened it because the loose tea and spices were ground to the consistency of what you would find in a Lipton tea bag. After simmering on the stove with sugar and milk, however, it came out delicious. Didn’t even need a strainer as the tea and spices clumped together at the bottom of the pot. Perfect kick of spice and sweetness.
