Very GoodBadNot Worth Paying For

Like Tazo Passion, I find this tea far too sour. Anne describes this as "without the sting of a zinger" but honestly I found it obscenely sour just like those teas. I don't like it! I think they've added citric acid to this one just like with Tazo Passion.

In terms of the aroma, I do really like it. It's very orangey, but in a way distinct from orange peel and most other orange flavorings. Also, I like how the aroma has a more herbaceous character and less spice: most orange-flavored herbal teas tend too much towards the spice, whereas this one is more of its own thing: fresher and overall much more pleasing to me. In a sense, I think it's a bit of a shame the way I like the aroma of this blend so much: it seems wasted given how I avoid this blend because of its sourness.

If I have to drink this tea (sometimes I've been in locations where it's available in a tea bag and there are no other options that I've wanted to try), I run it under cold water for about 10 seconds--this extracts most of the citric acid while leaving the aroma mostly intact.
