Trying this one iced. I’ve enjoyed it hot, but I think it will be refreshing iced.

I am somewhat surprised to say that I really enjoy this tea! It’s really serving its purpose as a bright, flavourful afternoon pick-me-up. I haven’t been too fond of a lot of green teas in the past, but I really like this one. It’s beautiful while steeping, too. :)

I rather enjoy this tea! I like the zinginess of the lemon and how it plays with the sweetness of the strawberry. It’s a good combination, in my book. I imagine it would be very tasty iced.

I wasn’t expecting to like this as much as I am! I don’t get much of the coffee note that others are talking about, but I am really enjoying the cocoa sense I’m getting from this. I enjoy red Rooibos, so the inclusion of that in this tea is great for me. This is going to be my morning cup for the foreseeable future as I’m trying to lose the habit of morning coffee (which I drink with too much cream and sugar). I just put a couple of pieces of rock sugar in with the leaves and brewed it for 5 minutes. Great!

ETA: I don’t typically add milk or cream to tea (unless it’s chai, in which case I do add a little milk) but a little over halfway through this cup I did add milk. This really helped improve the mouthfeel and made it feel more full-bodied, like a coffee.

drank Rooibos Chai by Teavana

I’m enjoying this cup of tea, but I have trouble thinking of it as chai. The cinnamon is so strong with none of the other spices that I really enjoy in chai – but for a caffeine-free night-time tea, it fits the bill on a cool, rainy evening.

Next time I will forego the 3rd teaspoon of tea in my 16 oz cup and brew for one minute less – the cinnamon was so strong it sort of numbed my tongue out! Really enjoyed the taste of it, though – it will be a great tea to drink through the entire fall/winter season.
