The initial smell of this tea is bright and citrusy, but a bit overwhelming. The smell is equally as strong when brewed. The color is a beautiful orange. The flavor isn’t as strong as I would like, but I will make sure to brew it longer next time to see if that helps. The main thing I taste is the orange, but the floral notes are what lingers. I like the tea well enough as I have brewed it this time, but I think I will like it more next time when I allow it to brew longer. This tea is a caffeine-free herbal tea that offers a nice alternative to a chamomile (I still love chamomile).
