Culinary Teas Orange Tea Review
This was supposed to taste like orange?
Summary : Not a bad tasting tea from
Culinary Teas ,
but nowhere could I find even a hint of orange. Not a "orange lovers
tea," that is for sure.
Review : If a tea has the label "orange" on it I'll
likely fall in love with the tea before even trying it. And so was the
Orange Tea, a flavored black tea. Indeed, even on their website, this tea is
supposed to taste like a "orange popscile" - thus making this tea seem
sweet tooth lovers delight.
And so I was very saddened when I opened up the air-tight bag that all
of their teas come in. I was greeted not by the sweet smell of oranges,
but instead, well, there really wasn't much of a smell at all.
Yet, a tea can't be judged by the smell alone, so off I went to brew the
And sadly, the taste of the tea more or less matched the smell. It's not
that the tea tasted bad - it's just that the tea tasted like a typical
black tea, sort of a "different" orange spiced tea.
So, who will like this tea. Well, not me for starters. And if you are searching
for a "orange tea", let alone one that actually tastes like an orange
popscile, well, keep searching.
However, if you like a more traditional black tea - such as an earl grey
tea, I suspect you'll likely enjoy this tea to some degree. I really
didn't mind this tea - it's just that I was hoping for a ORANGE tasting
tea and all I got was this black tea with no hint whatsoever of oranges.
Recommendation : If searching for a "orange tasting" tea
then this one is not for you, despite the misleading label and website
description. Tastes more like a traditional black tea.
