Something I love about Rooibos tea is that I can just leave them in the water forever and they never get bitter or overpowering. Which is great, because one of my glass strainers practically demands that the tea be left in. I got it from work! Part of my company designs promotional products for other companies to hand out—etc, and they recently got a sample for a double-walled glass tea strainer that companies can put their logos on. Because I’m the resident tea drinker it was given to me to test out! I love company perks when there is tea involved! (and the strainer isn’t too bad, either!)

This particular tea is great on its own, with lots of flavour and sweetness. It reminds me a little bit of Buttered Rum, by David’s tea. It has a similar taste, but it’s like it’s red tea cousin. Quite nice! I liked it, very much.

Mmmm, been tempted to order this. My local shop carries a caramel-infused red rooibos. I’m enjoying green rooibos more and more these days.

It’s true! I’m becoming more and more a fan of rooibos in general! I would def. suggest trying some of that caramel-infused rooibos from your magic tea shop!

Bio

Hello, Steepster!

I’m a twenty-something who attends Concordia University studying English Lit and Irish Studies. I also work at an online store that sells party supplies and costumes! My life is literally a party everyday!

Besides my work/school I’m also a comic book lover. I love attending conventions and have, in the past, done so in costume! (In 2009 it was Sally Jupiter). I also co-author a web comic called Abe and Kroenen and plan on being the author for a couple more upcoming projects. You can check those all out on my website/blog if you’re interested!

Now! About tea!

Formerly an avid coffee drinker I realised that 1. I didn’t really like the taste and 2. I really wasn’t ever getting enough sleep. The switch to tea was, at first, a painful one as extensively my knowledge of tea reached only so far as what was available at Tim Hortons and what my grandmothers kept in their cupboards.

I had a roommate, however, that never drank coffee—and slowly but surely I found myself converted. Then, just last summer, I stumbled upon DavidsTea and my life was changed forever.

Besides David’s, I also visit Teaopia whenever I’m back in Ontario, I’ve recently uncovered Camellia Sinensis in Montreal and new place that I’m yet to try—Milly’s Boutique!

I’m also a strong believer in Twinings and The Stash Company, and I’ve recently ordered some teas from 52teas, The Republic of Tea and Andrews & Dunham and I’m eagerly awaiting their arrival!

P.S. I love to write, and I love tea so expect me to chatter about in my reviews quite a bit!
