Tasters Review:

I have tried a lot of orange flavored teas with spices in them and them seem to either ‘miss the mark’, have bored me, tasted very chemically-soapy-or FAKE, or just plain bad.  This one was very different!

Harvest Orange Spice smells very spicy and orange…so…I decided to under infuse for…only about 2 minutes. I didn’t want the spice to over power everything else.  Normally I steep for the longer suggested infusions because I want them stronger.  This one I was afraid to based on the extreme scent of the spices.  With the under infusion it seemed to work out quite well and I was VERY impressed with it. I suppose next time I could infuse longer now that I am not afraid of the spice in this. The orange is lovely, Juicy, and Citrus!  The spice was just right and the orange tasted quite natural.

I like this a lot.  I have found an Orange Spice Tea for me!  Thank you, Octavia!
