I opened the rest of the gifts from my family and there was more tea! (it wasn’t all tea ;) )
I am so jealous that they are all back in Bozeman and I am not. I left 8 years ago when I got married, thinking I’d be coming back real soon. . .such is life :/
I received three teas from this company. This one smells sooo divine I could be happy just smelling the dry leaf. But, as is the case for almost every good-smelling dessert tea, it just doesn’t taste as good as it smells. It’s not bad. It does vaguely taste like a creamsicle. Sometimes I can appreciate orange in teas and sometimes not so much. This one of the not-so-much times. I can’t really say what it is that differs between the orange teas that I like and those that I don’t, but I think it’s that I prefer orange and spice. Well, now that I’ve put it in words, it must be the “cream” thing. I have a well documented history of not enjoying cream flavors in teas. Then, of course, the occasional exception confuses me and makes me reevaluate what I didn’t like about the others. So complicated are flavored teas!
I might try this one again, adding some cinnamon and milk. . .maybe it needs more cream. I have a whole two ounces of it, so I might as well experiment.
