Citrus and vanilla have always been a match made in heaven. Try this vanilla scented rooibos sprinkled with orange peel and flavouring.

I taste rooibos and oranges but find that it doesn’t taste anything close to an orange creamsicle. I am really falling out of love with rooibos lately and this blend doesn’t help-it’s really “woody” tasting-more than usual for a rooibos blend.

Iced Tea Sipdown (333)!

I think, for what this tea is, it was very simple – but I kind of liked the simplicity.

Flavour wise, the rooibos base was pretty strong but I thought it actually complimented the more medium bodied orange notes; it gave it a honey sort of quality rather than the woodyness or peppery quality I think it COULD have added. The orange wasn’t overly sweet in and of itself; very orange zest/peel like in flavour – however the sweet, silky vanilla flavour combined with it in such a way that it gave that orange more of a sweet quality.

I do actually think this was a pretty good “Creamsicle” flavour – although it COULD have been richer over all. It reminded me a lot of DAVIDsTEA’s Orange Blossom blend, but without the floral elements. I’m actually a huge fan of that DT blend and since it’s retired now, this is a good one for me to keep in mind if I ever wanted a pretty solid replacement for it.

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.

After my attempts and failures with making a creamsicle tea by putting vanilla matcha in orange juice, I decided I would try someone else’s attempt to make a creamsicle tea. Lucky for me, my Tickled Tea order arrived with samples galore, including this one.

I opened the adorable pocket-sized tea packet (about 3 perfect teaspoons of tea) and set this up to cold brew, my go-to method for the various creamsicle-inspired rooibos teas I have come across. I left it overnight and this morning I got to sipping as I added my 25 new teas into Steepster’s database (the downside of finding a new tea company).

First thing I noticed, even before drinking this tea, is that the smell is very much that of its namesake which was promising. Alas, the rooibos base used in this tea is a strongly flavored one so it does contribute a fair amount to the flavoring as you drink. It takes over with woody notes that do sort of give way to a citrusy orange. That combination is a little too medicinal for my liking but the aftertaste is all creamy deliciousness. Just sucks that the path to getting to the lingering vanilla creaminess is through rooibos-infested waters.
