drank Orange Creamsicle by Tickled Tea
2718 tasting notes

Trying out another sample from Tickled Tea. I brewed this iced. 1 tsp leaf, 500 mL cold water, about 45 minutes to steep. I think this would suit a bit of sweetener, but it is still good on its own.

This was a slight letdown. I was hoping for creamy fresh orange, but this is just a bit of orange zest and red rooibos. Really boring. It isn’t a bad cup, just not what I was hoping for. There is nothing creamsicle here. Just rooibos and dried orange skin. None of the vibrant freshly squeezed orange flavour or creamy vanilla ice cream flavour I had hoped for.

Flavors: Blood orange, Mineral, Orange Zest, Rooibos

Iced 8 min or more 1 tsp 17 OZ / 500 ML

That stinks! Hope the next one is better.

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
