Ah pink tea! The tea that almost wasn’t because I had a heck of a time getting the lid pried off the tin.
Actually this is inspired by the fact that A C Perch’s wrote in their newsletter today that they have a new rooibos which is flavoured with rhubarb. Now, admittedly I don’t much care for rooibos, as in not at all, but I can’t for the life of me imagine those two flavours together. I may have to push it on the boyfriend so that I can get an opinion on the matter. Although he may find the rhubarb flavour rather too girly…
Not that rhubarb is really a girly flavour in and off itself but in this green tea, it’s turned into something uber-girly. Pink and fluffy and reminding me of bubblegum.
I actually used too much leaf for this pot because I wasn’t paying attention to what I was doing, so here I don’t seem to have quite as much pinkness as I remembered it having, but there is a good deal of the green tea shining through. Which would have been nice if it hadn’t been for the fact that it’s also a little harsh from the fact that there is rather too much leaf in there. Oh well.
Anyway, it’s still a quite nice cup for those uber-girly moments. It’s just not one I really feel like having very often.
