Another tea from Martin :) I had two envelopes of this caffeine-free Fresh Orange, so I brewed one hot before bed last night and one cold overnight.
Hot was so full of bright, fresh sweet-tart orange flavor. At times I really did feel like I was drinking some freshly pressed valencia orange juice. But then there was also a little bit of that orange vitamin taste which said no, this is tea. And I did not object to that light vitamin taste. Really brilliant aroma and color, too.
Cold-brewed was just ok. There’s some hibiscus, rose hips and acidifier in the blend that give the tea a more noticeable acidity than when brewed hot, and the orange flavor is less pronounced. Regardless, it was a nice palate cleanser to have this morning.
Fresh Orange is a fun caffeine-free tea. I like it a lot and would keep it stocked, especially for summer.
