I wanted something orange. But more than just orange. Maybe something nutty. Enter Orange Almond from The Tea Can Company. It’s a loose tea inside a sheer silken bag. I just LOVE it when I can see ALL of the ingredients!
On the bag it says Orange Almond from The Tea Can Company has Black Tea, Orange Peel, Apple Pieces, Almond Pieces, Cinnamon Chips, Rose Petals, Cinnamon, Orange Spice flavor, and Orange Flavor.
From the teas I have had so far from The Tea Can Company they have all been impressive with the aroma and flavor to back it up but I have to say that Orange Almond from The Tea Can Company was even more scented and flavored than the others I have tried! This put a smile on my face!
I was able to get 2 steeps out of 1 bag. The first one was INTENSELY flavored. I could taste the orange, almond, and cinnamon ingredients VERY well. The apple contributed to the sweetness but wasn’t overly distinct like the other flavors, however, if it wasn’t there I doubt it would have been as sweet. I think it would have probably been more of a spicier-cinnamon flavor. So I truly believe their was a method to their madness and I would have to say that it was a beaming success!
The 2nd steep was still flavorful but the cinnamon was knock down a notch. The apple seemed to shine more in the 2nd steep and had more of a personality of its own.
This was a MIGHTY flavored black tea that I enjoyed VERY much! If you like orange, spice, and nuts – give this one a whirl!
Here’s the scoop!
