The main tea place I shop at is DAVIDs: It’s the place that got me into tea, and they have a lot of selection and good blends. But, one thing I must admit too is they aren’t very good about having good selection of “medicinal herbals”. If you go onto their website and go under herbals, you’ll find the majority of the blends have hibiscus in them or at least fruit pieces (usually apple). Don’t get me wrong, I like the fruit blends- especially iced in the summer- but throughout the day lately I’ve been drinking 1 cup of green tea + MANY cups of herbal tea, and not usually with fruit pieces. Thus, I am glad I went to IHOT- because their selection for herbals is very good.

With that being said, I made this tea at work during the evening part of my shift. Either this tea or the cranberry one has a nice, strong, citrusy scent that permeates the sampler tin. I felt like having a dessert tea so I figured I’d try this one first. (I know I was just complaining about fruit teas and this one is citrus, but a lot of the blends I bought did not have fruit in them, and this one isn’t mostly fruit like other teas ;) ).

When brewed up this has a really nice orangey smell to it that is far from artificial. I was concerned that the smell may not transfer to the taste like Strawberries and Cream from Steeped tea does, but luckily that is not the case! The forefront of the tea does taste citrusy/orangey and the following taste is the woody honeybush. This sounds weird, but I notice how I sip on the tea determines how well I taste the orange. I still want to play around with this tea- I think I oversteeped/overleafed this tea and thus I taste more wood than I would like, so I will try and play around with that to make the best cup of this. Overall though, it was quite enjoyable :).

I know what you mean about how you sip the tea affecting which aspects of it you taste.
