I’ve been drinking this at work today, trying to hang on to the last vestiges of Christmas spirit before they’re gone for good. Unlike last time, when I was at home, I’ve been adding milk to this. It makes a pleasant change. For some reason, I just didn’t think of adding milk until I got to work. Maybe because that’s what I usually do here.
Anyway, with the addition of milk, this is perhaps even nicer than before. It’s creamy, and the earthiness of the rooibos is toned down a little. The spices are slightly less harsh. I don’t usually add milk to rooibos, but I could get used to drinking it like this. Maybe because it’s spiced, but it’s reminding me of chai more than anything right now. Ah, winter! A successful experiment. I can’t wait to try this with the box of Rooibos Creme Caramel I’ve got stashed away now. I think that could turn out realllly nice! All I’m left to wonder is why this has never occured to me before. Still, better late than never.
