Where To Buy: Octavia Tea
All of the elements of a pie baked fresh on a brisk autumn evening find their way into this spiced black tea. Exotic cardamom and clove are married with ginger, cinnamon and clementine orange in this rich, flavorful blend. Wonderful with a touch of milk and sugar.

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!
