||One of the best orange spice teas I've had
|I've already enjoyed typical, boxed orange spice teas from the grocery, and when I discovered S&V, I figured I should give their version a trial. I was very pleased with the result. The tea is citrus-y and sweet, but with a nice amount of spice and the pleasantly slightly bitter flavor from orange peel. I really enjoyed it and powered through my entire package of the tea in record time. If you like heavily spiced teas, you can always drop a few whole cloves into the basket with the tea leaves. Mmmm, tasty.|
