Backlogged from last night’s marathon of sleeplessness and potentially fighting off a cold.

Tried it again, realizing that I’d grossly underleafed it last time (1/2 tbsp instead of a full one). This time I really got the cayenne and ginger, and it was delicious. Still had a large amount of dregs at the bottom that refused to mix into the hot liquid though. If this were unsweetened, it would be my tea of choice on many days.

EDIT: Upping the rating, as I really do enjoy this, it’s just still way too sweet for my needs.

I’ve seen packets of their plain ground rooibos at Famous Foods, and it’s no where near as finely ground as matcha. I don’t think it’s possible for it to fully dissolve or suspend in the tea. (Not on their website. No ingredients on their website, either. Ugh.)

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites and rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
