Orange Dulce

Orange Dulce is another favourite tea of mine from Mighty Leaf. It is absolutely delicious, and a tea that I would never pass up – especially in the morning. It is a flavoured black tea, with a hint of orange. Mighty leaf describes the tea as “a luscious, rich brew teeming with notes of orange, vanilla and jasmine blossoms. Made with Ceylon and China black teas, Orange Dulce brews up a fragrant and full bodied dark tea. Reminiscent of an aged Port, the flavor is sure to please.”

Usually, I strongly dislike orange flavoured foods, but this tea is a definite exception.

I have found that this tea has been a large “winner” with fans of Earl Grey. The strong taste of black tea and bergamot is still present, but different flavours are added to create a wonderful spin on Earl Grey. Those who only drink Earl Grey may find a pleasant surprise after steeping a cup of Orange Dulce!

  1. Hi Laur!! Thanks so much for this suggestion–next time I’m at Whole Foods I will definitely pick up a box of Orange Dulce, especially because I love Earl Grey 🙂

    Dad got some tea called yerba mate on a whim–it’s pretty good. But I was wondering what kind of tea it is and how it’s different? Glad to ask the expert! 🙂

  2. Awesome – I hope you enjoy it! Let me know what you think 🙂

    Yerba mate is technically not tea, but is instead a tisane (infusion made from plants that are not from the tea plant itself). Green/black/white/pu’ehr and oolongs are the only real teas as they come from the tea plant.

    Yerba Mate comes from the Yerba Mate plant (as per its name). Tisanes/herbals still offer a ton of health benefits. Personally, I am not a fan of the flavour of this type although it does have numerous amazing health benefits and is known for suppressing hunger as well as having a higher caffeine level than most teas! Thus it’s great as a coffee replacement.

    I promise to update my site soon with a page on herbals and tisane with more information on the different types!!
