I was surprised by the very short steep recommended for this tea. I’m starting to think that the tea makers at TeaHaus prefer rather short steeps, however. As a result, the taste is rather mild, though the vanilla (combined with the obligatory orange peel and cloves) makes for a mild base to begin with, regardless of steep time. (My mind goes to Glitter and Gold for an example of such.)

A longer steep makes it a little bitter, but not too much so — the mild, creamy flavour still predominant. I’m starting to think that the tea would be all the better for a bit of cinnamon, though it’s quite decent on its own.

In all, not bad. Not the greatest of the orange Christmas teas, but certainly a decent one nonetheless, especially if one is after a milder version of the flavour.

Boiling 2 min, 15 sec
