44 Tasting Notes
This was part of a sampler pack of Noir teas by Tea Forte. The aroma of this was very subtle but a true scent, not fake like some orange teas. The flavor was definitely a different kind of orange…the difference between blood orange and navel oranges is distinct. The black tea is dominant in this blend.
Flavors: Blood Orange
I haven’t changed my mind much since the last time I rated this tea. Despite a nice lemon scent right out of the box and a slight honey flavor present when I steep it, the flavor is so subtle—to the point of blandness—that it’s just not a tea I would drink daily. I had to add honey to make it worth drinking. If I was sick or had a cold and wasn’t able to taste much, I might like it just for something to soothe a sore throat. Maybe it would be better iced.
Flavors: Honey, Lemon
