I love me some rooibos, so I was excited to try a new blend tonight after a LOOOONG 13 hour workday. It brewed up quickly in to a comforting rusty red, one of my favorite features of teas like this. I’ve actually left the teabag in for the past ten minutes, and the flavor has only gotten more peach-like-sweet. Maybe a little too sweet…I’m missing some of the grounded earthiness of straight rooibos. However, its a little more delicate, which makes it easier for me to start getting sleepy with it.

As night time teas go, this is a gentle, warm flavor to end the day with.

And, from a purely aesthetic viewpoint, I really enjoy the teabags that Mighty Leaf has developed. The stitched edge and easy leaf viewing make this a more artistic tea experience.

I love tea because it’s more than just a beverage. There’s an ancient history and story to it. It brings people together, and they leave that steam-dancing circle with better understandings of themselves and each other.

There’s a verse in Revelation 22 that says that “the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.” I’m wondering if tea is a part of that, somehow.

I am an environmental educator, and an art teacher, so my crazy, barefoot, big-haired and happy license is current!
