Orange Spice Tea Mix Reviews

  • Probably ok, but have found that adding just orange peel to a tea doesnt do much, even after aging. What is needed is a pure water soluble extract (the kind with alcohol) - adds more flavor, doesnt fade out, doesnt leave bitter after taste either (like I found out the hard way that the essential oils for making candy do). I weigh the tea (I make big batches, for gifts), multiple the weight by 3%, add that much of the extract (by weight) with a spray bottle, let it dry spread out, loosely covered with a lid, about an hour. For 8 oz of loose tea, for example, I use about 1.9 oz weight of the extract. Then add other ingredients like some vanilla bean, some cardamon.

  • The orange flavor is fairly noticeable, but the clove/cinnamon is subtle to say the least. This wasnt bad, but I think Ill stick with my store-bought orange spice teabags. Thanks anyway.

  • I really enjoyed this...I did not have the dried orange so used fresh and squeezed some juice from the orange into it. I liked it hot but did have it chilled as well. I could see making this for friends on one of these snowy eves.

  • 5.23.20 I used dried orange peel that I bought at World Market, instead of drying my own. This was pretty good, although the cinnamon overpowered both the orange and clove flavors, and the black peppercorn was nonexistent. We enjoyed this in a cup of hot tea and the next day ice tea.

Truth hurts! Nothing is perfect, life is messy. Relationship are complex. Outcomes are uncertain, people are irrational.
