I bought a big 1 pound bag of this loose leaf tea. When I smell the dry tea from the big bag there is a sharp orange peel smell that is almost overwhelming. After transferring some of the tea to a smaller container the smell is much better.
So far I made this tea three times. The first time it tasted quite bitter. Not the bitter black tea taste but more of a bitter orange peel taste. I finished the cup but I really didn’t enjoy it at all.
The second and third time tasted much better. I don`t really know why it tasted so much better but maybe the first scoop of tea got some orange peel (or more orange peel) than the others. My rating is based on the two cups of tea that I enjoyed (not the first try).
Flavors: Orange Zest
