drank Orange Blossoms by Tea Desire
871 tasting notes

So on a few of my previous notes on Tea Desire teas, I made a comment that once I got home, the dry tea had no smell. This one is the exception, it has a strong smell. This one smells quite like artificial orange, much like chewable vitamin c, but not so tart. I like this taste, so I bought this tea to try.

There are cute little curly shaped, light orange yellow things mixed in with the oolong. From the ingredient list, I would think they are supposed to be orange blossoms, however they are quite thick and make me think they are more orange peel shavings.

The brewed tea has quite an oil slick on top, not surprised considering the smell is artificial orange flavour. The taste of the tea is not bad, considering I like that chewable vitamin C flavour. The oolong is very light in the background and to me tastes like a lightly oxidized oolong.

I like this one, but it is quite artificial. I have had better, ie. more natural tasting, orange blossom oolongs.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
