Sweet Orange Spice used to be one of my favorite teas. What a huge disappointment! The blend has changed, and it is now a much weaker, more generic flavor. Recently I was able to compare them side by side, as a friend had an older canister of the tea. The new tea blend lacks the robust flavor, is less complex, likely poorer quality of ingredients, and could be replaced by generic orange supermarket teas. Also, the new packaging/containers have an unattractive industrial look.
I received a sampler box of Tea Forte teas as a gift, and thoroughly enjoyed all the flavors. I was a confirmed coffee drinker, but there are few things more relaxing than drinking some wonderful hot tea on a winter evening. And Tea Forte is much higher quality than regular supermarket tea. Well worth it. Sweet orange spice is my new favorite.
A perfect pick-me-up when I have one more meeting or appointment and the day has been a challenge. Tasty, smooth, slightly tangy but mostly delicious tea taste that is more satisfying than any other drink I enjoy. No problem sleeping at night either, although I go back to my herbal favorite to accompany dinner. What a lovely surprise to ‘find’ this wonderful tea.
