This sample was generously provided by Marzipan! The black tea leaves are small and very dark, and there are slender feather-like red flower petals mixed in with them. I noticed that in the picture, there are orange peel pieces, but I didn’t really look hard enough at my sample to find those. Dry scent is a sweet combination of cinnamon and orange.
The steeped tea smells mostly of sweet cinnamon with just a touch of orange zest. The flavor of this one is super mild for me, I wonder if I overestimated my water. I’m not getting a lot of orange, which is odd since others seemed to. I do taste mild and sweet cinnamon, and it’s more similar to the spice than it is to candy, which is a nice change from a lot of other spiced teas. Hmm, I’m wondering if I waited too long to try this one, since it’s in a little ziploc baggy. :( Withholding rating.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Orange, Sweet
