...of the World's Only Limited Edition Fruit from Cushman's, and my box arrived today. The HoneyBells are here!
HoneyBells, a cross between a tangerine and a grapefruit, are sweet, incredibly juicy (they enclose large plastic bibs in the box), and DELICIOUS! They are available once - and only once - for a few short weeks in January. Then there are no more... anywhere.
Speaking of oranges, I love citrus fruit - and citrus-flavored tea, like Lady Grey (purchase here).
But ironically, I won't be tasting any citrus-flavor in my cup of Orange Pekoe tea because the word "Orange" here is believed to be a reference to The Dutch Royal House of Orange. The Dutch East India Company had a central role in bringing tea to Europe, and may have marketed the tea as "Orange" to suggest a royal warrant.
So the next time someone orders the Orange Pekoe and begins to describe the lovely orange flavor .... gently set them straight!
