So I thought I’d start a new feature called “Tea & Coffee Tuesday” since these are two things I absolutely love! I wanted to start out with a tea gifted to me from my bestie Sarah who used to work at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. I grew up in Orange County, California & being that my husband is in the military, we don’t really get to live nearby. I love this blend so much & it instantly reminds me of home!
Flavor: Sweet & Tangy, bitter if steeped too long.
Additional Information: Through a donation program some of the profits they make go back to the community itself. The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf program has offered to donate 1$ for every bag of the Orange County blends of coffee and tea that are sold to 24 local Orange County schools.
Get It: Limited Edition. This will be tough to get your hands on as it was released in the end of 2011.
Similar to: Tazo Orange Blossom Full Leaf Tea (although this is a green tea variety) & Tea’s Etc Oolong Tea, Orange Blossom (although in loose tea oolong form)
Orange County Sunshine Blend:
In celebration of Orange County, we’ve created this special tea blend. Handpicked orange blossoms lend their sweet floral fragrance to the finest oolong tea from Thailand, while tangy orange zest adds a refreshing burst of flavor. With its sun drenched amber color, each cup captures the distinctive charms of this very special blend.
Orange County Sunshine Blend Flavored Oolong Tea from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is a bright mix of orange sunshine. These are some of my favorite tea bags as well. They never break on me & I often make 2-3 cups of tea with them depending on my taste buds. This tea makes me feel happy. I have lots of teas from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf to share with you guys & not a dud in the bunch. Plus, how great are these tins? When I go through the tea inside, I use them to store…well…usually more tea!
