drank Orange Kidd by Lupicia
580 tasting notes

I brewed a cup of this to drink this evening. I now have a total of 4 herbal/rooibos teas to drink in the evenings, Cold 911 from David’s, ClariTea from Whispering Pines, Golden HoneyDew from Lupicia (not tried yet) and this one. I wish I could smell it. One of my favorite treats as a child was Orange Push-Ups. Kind of like Dreamsicles. Anyway, I brewed according to the directions on the package. It brewed up to an attractive, clear amber leaning-to-red color. I waited for it to cool a bit (hate burning my tongue on too-hot tea or anything else) before drinking it. Nice. Pretty smooth, with maybe a teeny bit of astringency. Perhaps from the citric orange? I found it pleasant. Probably not a re-order, but I’ll be happy to drink it from time to time. I may add just a bit of honey the next time I make it.

I love cats. I love alone time. I love sitting indoors on a cold winter night with a book or my knitting while drinking tea. I don’t have a sense of smell, so many of the more subtle flavors of tea escape me. Two of the things I CAN taste are bitter and sour, so any tea that has even a slightly bitter taste is nasty for me. And what others might perceive as pleasant tartness may be horribly sour for me.

I’m also a writer. I love writing, and a mug of hot tea helps me get through the hours sitting in front of the computer. Although I’m a comparatively new tea drinker, I’m jumping in feet first. Feel free to recommend any teas you think I might enjoy.

100-91 – Wowza! I want to keep this tea in the cupboard all the time.
75-90 – Very nice. It would be good to have this tea on hand from time to time.
60-74 – OK. Wouldn’t keep it in the cupboard, but I would drink it again.
45-59 – If a friend served this I would drink it to be polite, but it’s not really my cuppa.
Lower than 45 – Blech. It was too sour or bitter for my taste. Would not drink it again.
