Bring on the luscious creamy desserts! Oranges and cream might just be one of the most scrumptious things ever. Enter a creamsicle mousse with an island vibe – tea style! This caffeine-free blend of rooibos, vanilla, oranges, lemongrass, and creamy coconut steeps like a dream, and is best enjoyed cold or iced.

Steep it long and hot and strain over ice, steep it long and hot and simply allow it to cool, or try the cold-brew method (place 2 teaspoons of tea in 2 cups cold filtered water in a pitcher, chill in fridge for 8 to 12 hours/overnight, and strain to serve). I personally just allow it to cool and it is HEAVENLY.

Having this one cold allows all the gorgeous nuances of the lemongrass and creaminess to come out stronger, so while hot is great, cold is BETTER!

Certified organic ingredients: Fair Trade Rooibos, Orange Peel, Oranges, Lemongrass, Vanilla, Coconut, Toasted Coconut

Handcrafted in Toronto, Canada.

Steeping instructions: 2 tea spoons at 212F for 5-6 mins

Smell: It definitely lives up to its namesake and smells exactly like an orange creamsicle!

Prep: I cold brewed this for 3ish hours. I made it to re-hydrate after writing a gruelling assignment for school. I think I should have cold brewed it for longer to allow all the flavours to develop properly. However, I will say this was a good tea; I just wish that the flavours were stronger (I need to try making this again, sadly I only have a little bit left since you need more leaf to make an iced tea and I only got the 25 gram sample pack).

Taste: If you gave this to me and asked what does it taste like? I would tell you it tastes like a refreshing, but watered down, orange creamsicle mousse. I did not have that many orange pieces in mine, and I wonder if that could have helped amplify the orange aspect of this tea? But overall, it is a very nice and refreshing blend!

Flavors: Cream, Orange

I got a little ahead of myself and started steeping this before fully reading the notes on the bag that it’s better iced! I’ve been looking over obvious things today. Smells fantastic and when I sip it I get a strong orange flavor with distinct lemongrass mixed in. The sip is really lovely and bright and has a slight sweetness to it. A while into the finish and the rooibos creeps in with it’s woody taste and dry mouth sensation, which encourages me to sip more. I’m enjoying the flavors, but I’m not usually a big fan of rooibos, so I’d probably pass on ordering this one. I’d love it if it was an herbal mix minus the rooibos. Going to go finish the cup while catching up on the latest The Boys episode, which is a nice distraction from reality!

Thanks for the sample, VariaTEA!

I pulled this out and had no idea I made this before…which isn’t a good sign. Then I tried it and thought it was mostly rooibos with some orange so I was surprised not only that I tried it but also that it was rated at 78. I’m dropping that since hot this is a rooibos tea with some orange. Guess this will be a cold tea going forward.
