Episode 202: Orange and Spice

orange-and-spice

Bigelow’s Orange and Spice herbal tea is probably one of their better blends (even if it is a bit generic). Rose hips and hibiscus help support the tangy orange peel in this blend, and the roasted chicory punches up the “spices” (which I think is just cinnamon).

As a hot tea, it’s not that remarkable. The orange flavor is waxy and dull, and the chicory and cinnamon give a bitter aftertaste. But this blend shines as an iced tea. The orange is more tart and juicy, and the spices give a nice complement to that. Try it out and let me know what you think!
