My first rooibos, and I love it! I have the loose tea version in a little tin I found at TJ Maxx for $1.99. Instructions are to pour 12 ounces of boiling water over 1 Tbsp of loose “tea” and steep for 5 minutes. I prefer my tea strong, so I added an extra teaspoon. The liqueur is a beautiful dark amber. The peppermint flavor is definitely there. The chocolate flavor is mild but present. Althought mild, I appreciate that it tastes like real chocolate, as opposed to most dessert teas which rely on artificial flavoring to get the “chocolate” point across. This is in my top 3 from Mighty Leaf!

Bio

My name is Cassie. I’m 27 years old, married to my best friend, and we have 2 cats! I am a professional baker, and I own a bakery with my mom.

I sipped my first cup of “real” loose leaf tea on October 5th, 2013, and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying new flavors, anything and everything to find out what I like. I’m always looking for suggestions… Where to buy, which to try, steeping methods, tea accessories and gadgets, etc. :)

MY TASTE
*I grew up drinking iced tea in the South, so black tea will always have a place in my cupboard.
*I am obsessed with cinnamon! Anything loaded with cinnamon will become a favorite of mine.
*I like fruity teas, especially if they are tart. I love hibiscus and rose hips.
*I also like dark, strong, toasty teas, but preferably nothing smokey.
*I don’t do chamomile. Never. Ever. EW.

I’m open to try anything. Suggestions are welcome. :)

MY RATINGS
[#’s are solely based on personal preference.]
Less than 50 : Pour it down the drain
50-64 : Finish the cup // Never drink it again
65-74 : Not a bad cup // Would not repurchase
75-94 : Quite tasty // Would consider repurchasing
95+ : Delicious // Will never run out <3
