Making sure we were giving this tea every chance possible, in accordance with Tea Principles of the Little Yellow Teapot, we followed the instructions on the can: water not quite boiling and steep for 30-60 seconds.
Our care paid off. The resulting liquid, very light in color, was full of orangey flavor but also very mild teawise. (In fact, there isn’t much tea taste at all.) It’s quite soothing, like chamomile, but still contains caffeine. If you want a hot orange drink, this is a good choice. If you want an orangey tea, keep looking.
