so last week Davids Tea had those gifts that were 2 for $40 right? I purchased the Sweet Indulgence box and the Caffeine – Free Box. Both had teas that I was some into and honestly I also just wanted to splurge on myself:) Then I got my box, I didnt realize how small of a sample I get of the different teas! The little tins are so small! You may be get one or two tablespoons of each! I was very disappointed, but at least I have somewhat get to taste certain one. The little tins are cute to keep in your purse too.
Anyways, out of the Caffeine Free Box I grabbed this tea and reading the reviews made me get a craving for Thin Mints. The smell is divine, its sweet but rich, and has hint of mint. it reminds me of Lush’s lip balm Honey Trap. Looking at the reviews; I was aiming to steep it for 4 minutes and 30 seconds…but ended up steeping it at 7…I wasnt too worried because usually Im tolerant to Rooibos.
I was wrong…7 minutes, too freaking long. So after steeping it for that long it smells Medicine-y… :( The taste of course…medicine-y then turns into minty-chocolatey….which tastes good and I get that cool feeling from the mint. But damn, that first taste of medicine sucks, eck…
Im half way through my cup, I should add milk to it but Im in my bed, with my laptop, and my dogs beside me..oh well. I have one more serving for this and I really want to like this tea
