I haven’t written a note for this. I think I received it as a sample a while ago directly from Tealyra. It’s a lovely one. It’s all sweet sweet orange, almost reminding me of some sort of orange sauce you’d eat on chicken or something. I miss Chinese buffets. We don’t have any in the vicinity here anyway. There are only hints of mint in the flavor, which is fine with me as I like the sweet orange being the highlight of the cup. The second steep is also fantastic. Sadly they don’t have this for sale anymore. I would have bought more. That’s the problem with Tealyra… they once kept my favorites in stock but not so much anymore. But it looks like ‘Tea Desire’ has it in stock as Blood Orange Loves Mint.
