When I was a kid, I loved orange creamsicles. I asked my mom for them all of the time. Those and those Fred Flinstone “Push-Ups”. My whole family loved them. We made a huge mess with them. They always seemed to melt before we were able to finish them. I remember one night my dad almost taking down an entire box himself. This tea tastes just like one of those!!
I have had several teas in the past that say they taste like an orange creamsicle but those always seemed to fall short. Usually the black tea base was always stronger than it should be or the orange flavoring tasted fake. So when I was on Steepster and checking out everybody’s reviews I noticed a new company I had never heard of. Mountain Tea Witch Company. I checked them out and they had several different flavored blacks, greens, whites, and herbals. I was excited about the different ones that they offered. Blueberry Pancake, Bavarian Vanilla Cream, and Blood Orange Tea just to name a few. There were so many to choose from.
First sip, I was expecting that artificial orange taste to hit me, but that wasn’t the case at all. This tasted like a real orange with a creamy vanilla side. I am even having trouble typing up this review because I keep stopping to drink more. This may very well be the best orange tea I have ever had. The vanilla is so perfectly done. It provides that natural sweetness and soft creaminess that blends so very well with the blood orange. All of the flavors taste very fresh and not artificial at all. There is a black tea base but its hardly noticeable. I am even drinking this iced and usually you instantly taste the black tea. Not so here. Just a very well balanced tea. I am extremely pleased with this offering and am looking forward to checking out the rest of the teas they have to offer. Well done!
