drank orange biscotti by Tea Embassy
1145 tasting notes

I think this tea has been misnamed. Orange biscotti isn’t an accurate representation, but I’m guessing more people know what biscotti is than what panettone is, which is exactly what this tea matches. The scent of the dry tea is rich with orange, almond and sweet bread. That scent is lighter once steeped, but still very present. When sipping it I get a very well balanced rich baked orange pastry flavor. The almond blends in well, adding to the baked notes. The base of the tea merges perfectly with the orange. I’d be curious to know what the base is and if it has bread notes of it’s own. I bet this tea would be delicious with cream and sugar. Perhaps a test for another cup, because this one is really nice as is.

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
