Story, Folklore, History...
The Golden AppleGrowing in the mythological garden of Hesperides were "golden apple" trees which granted immortality to those who ate its fruit. Legend has it that these golden apple trees were grown from the fuited branches Gaea gave to Hera as a wedding gift when she married Zeus. These golden apples were in fact oranges, however the Greeks did not yet have a word for it. The word orange was introduced to Europe from the Sanskrit word for orange tree, "Narangah". Incidentally, the color orange is named after the fruit, and not the other way around.

I love the smell of this tea, but i find the orange flavour could be pumped up a bit more. I do enjoy the taste still.
