New reformulation new as of 12/17 is a huge disappointment compared with the original blend. I was a huge tea forte fan. I found other flavors I liked to try because I had to re-order my Sweet Orange Spice. I am afraid I don’t have any reason to stay with Tea Forte now, and I’m ordering from another tea supplier. I was so desperate for the old formulation I ordered 8 while they had them on Amazon.
but you have changed the blend and I no longer recognize it or like it. Because of the changes in Sweet Orange Spice and your new impossible-to-open packaging, I won't be ordering from Tea Forte any more. If you go back to the old Sweet Orange Spice, please let me know.
The original blend was one of my favorites!! I'd easily give that blend a 5 star score. When it became unavailable last year I was very disappointed. With the new blend, though, I have to agree with the other reviews - the tea is very very weak tasting and the can is near impossible to open. Also, with the new packaging, the teas no longer arrive in a sealed plastic bag inside the cans.
I LOVED the original blend and waited patiently for it to be available again. They must have re-designed the blend because its mostly just cinnamon, I can barely taste any orange or actual tea flavor. I am very disappointed and hope they will change it back to the original, as it now just tastes like cinnamon water and is an outright waste of money.
I agree with many of the reviewers. This was a great tasting tea. Searched and searched for it and when it finally came back I ordered two canisters. Very disappointed in the flavor. There wasn’t any........ It is flat and flavorless. Like one reviewer said, it tastes like boiled water. Please change it back. Also the canister is impossible to open. Luckily I had an old canister I poured in into. PLEASE BRING BACK THE FLAVOR............
This used to be my favorite tea ever until the formula was changed. When they changed the can they also changed the formula and I HATE the new formula. The old formula had a really pleasant spice and sweetness combination so I could drink it without sugar. The is just bland and bitter. Please, please bring back the old formula of this tea.
The new blend is undrinkable! Why on earth did you change the blend of one of your best selling teas And design a canister few can open! Please consider the many thousands of customers who drank the old blend and consider bringing the original back. You’ll see your sales skyrocket for the original sweet orange spice tea!
