A lot of people adore the combination of orange with let´s say chocolate (my brother is a big fan of Pim´s Cakes, for instance), or vanilla, and that´s great, but according to me no combination is as good as …a simple orange itself! Needless to say, I´ve encountered very few orange teas I really like. This 75% green tea (with white tea completing the blend) might be one I can enjoy more than once ;-) …and it truly smells like when peeling a ripe orange!

From Bruu´s website :
What it is? A premium blend with the aroma combination of oranges and vanilla. Deep red rose buds, bright carrot shreds and golden orange triangles will lighten up your day.
Why we love it : Teas have been selected very cleverly to create a subtle blend here. We’re pleased with this one, we think you will be too.
Where it’s from : Green tea from Kawane, Japan. Located on the mountainside on the upper stream of Oi river, Kawane is famous for producing refined, deep-steamed Sencha (green tea). Around this area, there is a nostalgic steam locomotive that still operates on the Oigawa Railway. Take the train to see the huge tea plantation from aboard, or get off the train to capture the lush scenery of this tea plantation as a backdrop to the whimsical black locomotive. Surrounded in mountains, Kawane features no shortage of unforgettable natural scenery.
How our drink hits the senses : Imagine the scent you get when you peel a ripe, juicy orange.
The taste journey : A taste with sweet notes and a special finish. A real pleasure without caffeine.

Flavors: Orange, Orange Blossom, Orange Zest

That sounds good! Nina’s of Paris had an orange black tea that tastes like fresh fresh spray of orange in your face when peeling the fruit! It really is delightful as is, though I do like the scent of orange and vanilla, as well.

Bio

Introduced to tea by my sister-in-law in my country of birth = Belgium more than 30 years ago, I still love tea, mainly black, which I enjoy without sugar or milk. Having lived in UK, near good tea shops (e.g. Betty´s all over Yorkshire), I tend to buy most of my tea in bulk from tea shops (as such, most of these are not represented in my on-line cupboard). Nowadays, I live in Spain where tea gives me another sensatory bliss (as wine or beer or coffee can give me too).
