Too much spice, not enough orange

The tea smells great, but the strong cinnamon flavor just overwhelms the taste. Not my favorite in the winter collections.

Too much cinnamon

This tea has WAY to much cinnamon and not a bit of orange. It is like drinking a piece of Big Red chewing gum. I had to mix it 1/2 sweet orange spice and 1/2 lipton black tea. I will not be purchasing this again.

Great morning starter

I have been starting my mornings with Sweet Orange Spice for a few weeks now. Very aromatic and pleasing to the taste and smell. I want to try it over ice soon!

too much cinnamon

This is a good tea. Not overly sweet and very smooth. I really like it but i cannot smell the orange, the cinnamon is too overwhelm.

Sweet Cinnamon Orange heaven!

Black tea and citrus are not typically my first pick,however; this tea has a very decadent and rich cinnamon flavor first with a hint of orange. Not for those who dislike cinnamon. It is also a sweet tea so you feel like you are getting a nice dessert while enjoying this tea. Also the aroma fills the air with citrus/cinnamon you often smell during the holiday season. Be sure to steep long enough for these rich flavors. Enjoy!

Tremendous Intense Cinnamon!

I got hooked on cinnamon tea back in the days of The Good Earth restaurant franchise in California that went bankrupt but still sold their teas that then changed the recipe a few years ago to my dismay. This tea is superior in many ways to that tea when steeped properly. I go through two canisters a month because I enjoy waking up to this tea.

Okay, we only have a Teavana in my city and I am not overly impressed with their teas. I was searching the internet looking for some premium "fancy" teas and I cam across Tea Forte. On a whim I decided to buy several teas and the Kati brewing mug. I received my package today and decided to brew an afternoon cup of Sweet Orange Spice tea. Wow! Hands down one of the best teas I have ever had!! So much flavor, love the kick of cinnamon. Definitely a sweet tea, no need to add anything to this tea. Not much of an orange taste, but it is so dang good it doesn't matter. I am now so excited to try the other teas I bought. I can definitively say Tea Forte has a new loyal customer!

Cinnamon Citrus Treat!

I'm a sucker for any tea with cinnamon in it! This is delicious, smooth, sweet & spicy. This tea gets sweeter the longer you steep. I do agree with previous posters that there isn't an abundance of orange in this tea, which is totally fine by me. If you really want an orangey-black tea, I'd recommend Tea Forté's Blood Orange in the Noir collection. It's wonderful, too!

Best black tea

This is my favorite black tea. It is simply delicious, never bitter, smells great and is always good right down to the last sip. I drink this alone...no need for cream or sugar. This flavor is a a keeper!

World Market used to sell loose tea and their orange spice my favorite, then they stopped selling it. I have been trying to find an orange spice loose tea ever since. I happen to come upon this tea while visiting Boudin's Restaurant in San Francisco CA. I bought it and couldn't wait to try it. Love Love Love it! So glad I can order this online. It taste as good as it smells!! Two thumbs up.

Sweet Orange Spice

This by far my fav tea! I buy it every time I order (at least once a month) What I want to know is WHEN will the event box be brought back?? I always kept a couple in my purse 'just in case'. I cannot do this with the loose tea.

Not A Strong Orange Flavor

This one is very close to Vienna Cinnamon. There is a strong, albeit pleasant, cinnamon flavor to this tea. I was hoping for more orange flavor and since there really isn't any, I probably won't reorder as I have plenty of Vienna Cinnamon and this is very nearly that.

"Christmas in a cup" is the best way to describe this tea. Its so delightful!

This'll cure what ails you

Besides being possibly the most delicious tea forte, it works wonders clearing a cold out of your head. Chicken noodle soup, step aside! A rival has eclipsed you!

love it

This is one of my favorite teas ever, and I'm actually not much of a black tea fan. My husband also specifically asks for this one.

Too much cinnamon

This flavor was a bit strong with cinnamon. A very good cup of tea, but I was expecting a bit more of a spice flavor, such as a touch of cloves and cinnamon rather than just cinnamon. I will have to try the other teas with orange to find a better fit for me.

I've been wanting to try this tea for awhile but was hesitant to purchase an event box with 48 infusers. Didn't want to commit to that much tea that I might not enjoy. Went ahead and bought the loose tea to give it a try. It was delivered today, I immediately made a cup and before I finished it, went online to order the event box. It is fabulous ~ my new favorite tea. The perfect blend of sweet and spicy. Love!!!

absolutely delicious

i bought it first @ Neiman Marcus and OMG...absolutely delicious

Best ever

I host 4 other ladies each month to stitch. I serve tea every time. One of our ladies is not a tea drinker but she finished the pot in December then went online and tried to order more. This tea will get non-tea drinkers drinking tea. There are 3 of us "on the waiting list" for the loose tea and 2 of us bought the 48 bags. One is now a confirmed Tea Forte drinker and orderer. A true winner!

I just received this as the "flavor" in a KATI gift set!! I am in love!!! This is my first Tea Forte experience and it couldn't be better. I am hooked and so thankful that I received this gift!!

Fantastic tea

I have been waiting for this to come back all year . Wonderful black tea for a winter afternoon. It is one of my favorites. Excellent blend of spice and orange zest. A must have for the winter season

Exceptional Flavor!!

I just love this tea & I am so happy that they are now selling it separately in a pouch. The flavor is wonderful. The black tea is flavorful with the wonderful combination of cinnamon & sweet orange. It is my favorite tea. The flavors are so great that I don't need to add any sweeteners. I wanted to have this tea all year round. I hope that they will sell it in the loose tea canister soon. I had tried it with the winter collection loose tea canisters & I couldn't get enough. I was sad when I had finished my last cup & thought I had to wait until the winter. Now I'm very happy it will be available. I will be ordering multiple pouches!!!

This tea was so delightful, I wanted cup after cup. Please, please, please consider selling it solo!

4/19/10  |  Jessica, Bradenton, FL


This was our favorite from our gift box. wish you woud sell it separately and forever!!

2/14/10  |  Gerrie, O fallon, MO


I agree with everyone. Please consider sell it separately. This is definitely one of my favorities.

Of all the orange-spice teas I've ever tried, this was by far the best. Perfectly balanced so that no one thing was overpowering and utterly yummy. I hope you start selling this tea on its own, because I would buy it!

I agree

I agree with the others. I got this tea along with the crimson nectar tea as a Christmas gift this year, and it may be my favourite tea ever. Very disappointed that I can't buy it itself, and that it's only limited edition. If it were available on its own, year round, I would definitely be a regular buyer.

Love This Tea!

I completely agree with Wendy. I wish you could buy this tea by itself.

My favourite

I love this tea. my only regret is that it is available for such a short time!
