I spent another day at the library and as a treat while taking a break I purchased a cup of tea made with the Keurig Brew K-cup. This tea was Mandarin Orange Spice Herb Tea by Celestial Seasonings. The tea’s K-cup was placed in the Keurig Brew K-cup and a cup placed underneath it while the water dispenses with the tea. I think it took about 30 seconds.

Tea’s color is dark and malt like but not as dark as Goya malt per se. Tea’s aroma is bold/roasted and orange in scent. Taste wise the tea is smooth and very citrusy from the mandarin orange and spice. I don’t know, something about this cup did not strike me well.

I think that ones’ mood along with a cup of tea goes hand in hand; nothing was done differently in fixing the tea so it should have been fine but the taste I was left with was not to my liking.

Tea’s color was fine, malty amber in color; the aroma was of orange but not of zesty fruitiness and yet the taste seems to reeks (over drip) of the orange flavoring. I am saying that I like mandarin orange but not as tea I guess, well not this cup of tea. Sorry!

I like to drink tea less so than when I was aptly reviewing teas. I find that I like less and less of things as I age. I am a somber spirit who prays daily to not be at all. Thank you Steepster for all that you do to enrich tea drinkers.
