This was one of my favourite Mighty Leaf teas the first time I tried them, and it still is. It’s such a fabulous dessert tea — creamy, rich, flavourful. There’s everything you could want. The orange flavouring isn’t exactly natural — it tastes more like a creamsicle than an actual orange — but that’s part of its effect. The creaminess is almost thick tasting, and this is helped by the heavy floral of the jasmine that hangs around in the background and contributes an unexpected depth of flavour. It’s almost like it makes this tea 3D, rather than just 2D orange and cream. The vanilla is the real star, though — it seems to hold the other elements together and makes them into a cohesive flavour. It helps the resemblance to ice cream, too!
I drank this one with milk on this occasion, but it’s equally nice without on the odd occasion I’ve had a cup at work. It’s too much all of the time, but it’s a great treat. One I’ll always enjoy!
