I’m a sucker for a creamsicle flavour, and when Dreamsicle didn’t win the Back from the Dead contest recently I was so sad. This is one of three orange cream type teas I have right now, and is my least favourite. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a lovely tea and I do like it, but it is sub-par compared to others on the market. (My favourite, for those hunting, is the Honeybush Orange from The Tea Haus.)

This one smells heavenly dry, and even brewed still retains a large portion of the scent. Drinking it black, however, is a slight disappointment as there is only about half the flavour I’ve come to expect in my orange teas. Adding some milk and sugar does make it a delightful cup, but it still isn’t exactly what I’d hoped for. (Although I have a friend who says to try it with a teaspoon of whipping cream so I may have to do that before ruling this one out entirely!)

An avid tea addict in the GTA, Ontario, Canada. I’m always looking for new teas and new tea addicted friends!

My preference is loose leaf of all varieties, however the occasional bagged tea can come along and charm me. Flavoured or straight, there is a good chance that I will be falling in love.

My ratings system is based on the smiley faces above the ratings scale.

0-10 — This tea didn’t get past the initial sip process. I just couldn’t bring myself to drink more, I found it so horrible.

11-50 — It made it past first sips, but as I drank a bit more I realized I really wasn’t enjoying the tea, and would never drink it again.

51-60 — I probably made it through the cup, but won’t be trying another one.

61-69 — Either it’s a mystery tea and I can’t decide if I like it or not, or it is one that I felt was purely adequate.

70-85 — These are the teas that I appreciate and/or like. If they are falling in this area they are ones that I would definitely re-buy, however are not ones that I must always have on hand. The good, but not the amazing.

86-94 — These are the favourites. My cupboard feels empty if they aren’t inside.

95-100 — Tea perfection!
