Thank you to Krystalyen for this one!

I’ve had some pretty yucky rooibos blends in my day but am happy to report this isn’t one of them. I’ve been curious about this particular one for a while now. I can’t help but wonder if I would enjoy this more in the dead of winter but it IS kinda foggy here today so I’ll just pretend. :)

I’m getting a lot of cinnamon in this cup, then apple, almond & ginger. I’m a big ol’ ginger freak so I would have liked more, even! This tea reminds me a lot of hot apple cider with almond added. I think there’s also some coconut slivers in here too? The cinnamon seems VERY strong in this blend!

I like it but am not totally in love with it. It does smell slightly medicine-y in the aroma but I’m not too bothered by that. If you think you’d really like a hot apple rooibos chai then this would be your thing, for sure.

It is a good blend and one I am enjoying tonight. I added vanilla soymilk to this tonight to make it more dessert like, but this is one I could also drink plain.

Thanks again, K!

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
