It's all about

That chicken soup broth experience. Judging from the ratio of orange peel pieces to tea leaves, I thought this tea would be overwhelmingly orange-flavored. The aroma of orange oil aroma is certainly there, but the most striking part of this tea is how much it tastes like an umami-rich chicken stock made with citrus. I think it actually made me hungry for soup while drinking it.
