Orange Dream from Tea Taxi. . . .

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!

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!

Hey there! My name is Rachel. I’m a twenty-something from Toronto, Ontario, Canada who loves dogs and has a bit of an obsession with tea. As a child I hated the stuff since all I ever knew was Red Rose (no offense to Red Rose). However, a few years ago that all changed. I was on a diet and desperate for new flavors without adding calories and that’s when I turned to tea. I started off by going to DAVIDsTEA and Teavana for all their dessert-inspired flavors, and since I didn’t know any better, I bought 100 grams each of about twenty-something different teas. This was okay for the teas I liked but for those I didn’t I needed to find some way of getting rid of them.

Enter Steepster.com. This is where I met some incredible tea friends, discovered tea swaps, and learned of so many amazing tea companies. My desire to try all the teas grew and since joining three years ago I have tried over a thousand different teas. I have learned what ingredients I love and I have learned what flavors I don’t like. I determined my go-to brewing method is Western-style with no added milk or sweeteners, though I also enjoy cold brewing, iced teas, teapops, lattes, and smoothies. I have yet to brew gong-fu style but I hope to do so just as soon as I get the proper teaware to do it.

About a year ago, I actually stopped drinking tea but as my stash of over 200 teas started aging I decided I needed to respark my interest. I chose to take a 365 days of tea challenge on Instagram in which I post a new tea picture every day. So far it has been rather successful as I find myself drinking (and buying) more and more tea each day. Plus it enabled CuppaGeek to find me and invite me here to SororiTea Sisters.
