drank Orange Creamsicle by Cuppa Geek
1076 tasting notes

Final tea of the advent grab bag. Though the 25th tea was meant by Nichole to be had on New Year’s Eve, I saved this for today, the first, since it’s Kiki’s name day.

“Dry smells like tangerine!”

I sniff it and say I think I smell cream, hand the packet back to Kiki.

sniff “Huh, yeah! Kinda like… kinda like a, what’s it called… a creamsicle.”

picks up the mug “Yeah, it definitely smells creamy, like creamsicle. Yes, hm, mildy citrusy, tangerine-orange flavor. I pick up the black tea and it smells like a …lightly… creamsicle. And it tastes like a creamsicle. smiles The more you drink, the more the orange comes out. I can taste the orange rind, or cit— citrus rind, whatever kind it is. It’s good. It’s very good. I’m not one to really like that vanilla cream kinda flavor BELCH because it tastes artificial laughs sorry, oopsie, more laughs so I probably wouldn’t buy it. Happy New Year everybody.” smiles

(FWIW, this is called Orange Dreamsicle on the packet)

Thank you so much, Nichole, for making this advent possible. Kiki had a great time trying a new tea almost everyday this past month. We found several that she really liked and I’ll be purchasing pouches of those for her if they’re available. The best part for her, though, was having me share her reactions with Steepster. She loves to please, so all your comments made her happy. I’ll be sure this year to post some reviews from Kiki here and there.

Always open to gifting or swapping teas. I do send international when feasible. Please follow and send a message if you see a tea in my notes or cupboard that piques your interest.

Tea became a hobby and my daily drink of choice some time late in the last decade. My introduction to loose leaf came in the form of dumpster-dived Wuyi oolong packets that somebody left upon moving out of an apartment building. From there, my palate expanded to teas from across China and the world. I used to focus more on taste and still harbor the habit, but after trying sheng puer, I tend to focus more on how a tea feels in my body. Does it complement my constitution? Does it change my mood or does it enhance my current mindstate? Flavored teas are not a favorite but I do drink them intermittently.

In terms of who I am, you could consider me a jill of all trades. Specialty is not my strength, as can be seen in the spread of my tea notes. I might have attention issues. One thing I will always love is riding a bicycle.
