  • Close your eyes and take in the aroma. Ahh.

    The leaves for this orange decaf black tea were grown in Sri lanka. It's a delicious pairing of Ceylon decaf and natural orange peels and juices. Let's get back to basics. It's the simplest things in life that give the most pleasure. That's why we love tea. The little rituals: setting the pot. Listening for the whistle. Sugar or honey? One spoon or two? Milk or cream? Tea gives us time back. Time to savor: friends and flavors. It reminds us to value the little joys: the swirl of milk in a hot cup. 
    And what could be more simply wonderful than the noise-flaring citrus aroma, the zesty taste of orange? Close your eyes, breath deep, and see where it takes you. Sunset over a California orange grove? A glass of Florida orange juice on the porch? Or how about just taking tea in the Orangerie? Whatever memories you attach this simple yet wonderful citrus sensation, let us help you there with this orange decaf blend. 
    This tea combines the already distinct Ceylon black decaf with orange peels and flavors. The zesty orange rind adds dry notes, while the tea leaves are imbued with the ubiquitous sweetness of juice. The Ceylon decaf naturally imparts a clean tangy aroma, and a flavor with citrus notes, making the marriage with natural orange flavors seamless. This tea has a medium body, and a refreshing astringency. A natural decaffeination process preserves the shape and flavor of the tea leaves.
    In China, the orange is a symbol of prosperity. So drink and prosper in the little joys. Drink and savor. Here's to the simpler, sweeter things in life.

  • Steeping Instructions

    1 teaspoon per 8 oz of water. Fluffy leaves like some Oolongs, use 2 teaspoons. For stronger tea use more tea.   There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter.   If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times. Below are general steeping instructions.  For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
    To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle.  When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.
