So this was the tea of the day that I ended up spilling a goodly portion on the floor. Yup, little bits of rooibos everywhere. I had just enough for a pot, and have decided to go ahead and brew it up now since I haven’t had it yet.

So I love rooibos blends, and have been eyeing this tea for a while, but haven’t ordered it yet. I’ve been dedicating my tea budget to Frank’s limited edition teas, telling myself that this blend will still be there when I’m ready for it. That and the label makes me kinda snicker.

Cinnamon, apricots, rooibos. It’s lovely. I only brewed for 5 minutes, and while it has a solid fruity-spicy flavor, I think this is one I’d brew for 10 minutes to get a really full-bodied brew (will probably do a second steep). The apricot blends wonderfully with the rooibos (and I maintain that apricot was meant to be blended with rooibos), and the cinnamon is very gentle and slightly in the background (or else it ended up on my kitchen floor).

Nom! Definitely glad this one is permanent!!

The label makes you snicker?

Jaime

The picture, yes. I’ve got a twisted little mind.

I see where you could be going with that! LOL – I had a somewhat stranger idea…pretty gross actually! But, I, too…have an ‘off’ sense of humor teeheeeeee

Well, I just changed the label, so I’m not sure which one you are talking about or what twisted image you could be seeing, but I’ll take your word for it.

Jaime

Frank, it’s the new one…but again, I’m kinda twisted.

TeaEqualsBliss, I think I know what you’re stranger idea is. So glad I’m not the only one on here who’s got that brand of humor!

Bio

My love of tea started in 2001, whilst in an internship in London, England. I shared an office with a lovely man who would make me a cup of tea every morning without asking me if I even wanted it. I drink my tea neat now, because I’ve yet to find the sugar/milk combination that lives up to Pablo’s.

I drink any and all kinds of tea, and love trying new brands/varieties/flavors.
