Apparently my rating for this tea is kind of terrible. And I bought 8 oz of it. Oh well!

I’m drinking it as a latte tonight. I steeped it in part almond milk, part water. A little brown sugar (I resisted the rum, although I’m reconsidering), and voila! A comforting cinnamony, appley, nutty hot milky drink. I used 2 tbsp for 16 oz, which is why I will only get this one on sale.

It didn’t even brew up pink. Instead, it’s kinda murky.

Still, it does taste good this way. Just not great value for money.

I’m sure spiced rum would especially doctor this one up nicely. Or Frangelico. Mmm, or Galliano.

My in-laws love this one, they steep it for ages and add milk. My Mother in law say sit tastes like Strawberry Quick.

A latte sounds good! Too bad it didn’t brew up pink though – it’s such a pretty color.

I was really surprised it didn’t end up pink. I’m going to have to play around with this one a bit, because it wasn’t too pink when I brewed it with just water, either. Maybe it was the batch? Oh well, it still tastes lovely.

It could have been the batch – maybe not enough of those beetroot pieces which give the color.

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)
