In the search for an afternoon tea with no caffeine and not being in a fruity mood, I ended up trying this one again. It went pretty well with the pear cupcake I had. Yes, I’ve been eating lots of cupcakes! I can’t help but stop in to see the daily specials every weekend with my husband. We usually get 3 each ;) So…on to the tea. This time I tasted more caramel. It could have been that there were 3 pieces of caramel in the 1 1/2 teaspoon I steeped, or that I added some milk and sugar. Still, rooibos was the dominant flavor. I really would like to find a sweetly flavored rooibos without fruit, where the named flavor is more dominant the rooibos. Any recommendations?

I have recently become tea obsessed! I’ve always loved an occasional cup and my mother is a daily tea drinker, but in the last year it has become my favorite thing! Started out by having a cup of black tea in the morning. Loved going for afternoon tea with my mom! Since fully immersing myself in loose leaf tea, I have become nuts for it!

I am now exploring more and more companies, and trying to go beyond my comfort zone of flavored black teas and try more oolong, green and white teas.

My favorite teas are evolving. I love teas from DavidsTea, Lupicia, Harney and Sons, Della Terra Teas, and Butiki!
