I don’t usually love orange teas but the smell of them are certainly mouthwatering regardless. This tea, TeaTaxi’s Orange Dream, is no exception. A simple mix of oolong, orange peel, and flavor, I steeped up my whole sample in 190F water for 3 minutes.
Maybe it’s the time of year. Maybe it’s changing tastebuds. Whatever it is, I am actually quite enjoying this tea today. The orange scent of the dry leaf carries over to the scent of the brewed tea which in turn carries through the taste of the tea itself. The oolong compliments the orange flavor by providing a solid base and a touch of floral and cream without being overbearing. Simple but lovely.
This tea is both rich and warming while also being bright from the orange. As neither an orange tea lover or an oolong lover, I’m surprisingly a fan and as such would recommend this to those who like these kinds of teas.
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Oolong
Where to Buy: Tea Taxi
This is orange at its best! The tanginess of the fruit is perfectly balanced with the creaminess of oolong tea. A perfect brew after lunch or in the morning to kick start your day!
