Leaf Appearance: dark green and small in size, some bags had orange peels.
Ingredients: green tea, orange peels, natural lemon flavor, natural orange flavor
Steep time: 3 minutes
Water Temperature: 180 degrees
Preparation Method: porcelain mug
Liquor: pale gold
This tea was packaged in a silky pyramid tea bag and is part of the Sweet Medley Gourmet Tea Collection. The citrus flavor was very well done, strong but not overpowering. The green tea base was sweet and vegetal. There was very little astringency but it was still crisp and refreshing. Not all of the tea bags had slices of orange but the flavor was not affected. It was delicious hot but it would make an excellent iced tea as well. I would definitely recommend this tea.
