A Steepster Traveling Teabox Tea!
I can only have so much caffeine per day, and adore chai so I was excited by this tea. The smell was very potent and promising, but the cup turned out OK, it was a solid red with some spice to it, but I prefer chai with a bit more spice/kick.
Post-Steep Additives: none
I drink tea twice a day, and then got pregnant and worried about some of the unusual herbs in what I normally drink and wanted to go totally caffeine free. That’s how I discovered Rooibos Red Spice. It’s a versatile tea that I enjoy both for breakfast and at bedtime. I love that the spices are mild and there’s no licorice, which ruins most spice teas for me. It’s a nice deep color that makes me not miss my English Breakfast tea.
I wasn’t fond of this smell but the Rooibos blend ended up being semi-enjoyable…surprisingly…
It says Full Bodied and Robust with warm spice…I don’t think it was full-bodied/robust but it was sweet and juicy with a little bit of spice…not over the top – which is good, in my book, to not over do it with the spice esp with a rooibos.
I got this at Whole Foods, they mix concentrated tea with sparkling water. I’m not a fan of carbonation, except in my champagne and beer, so I wasn’t sure about this. But really, it’s good, sweet of course, not quite like juice, but close. And the bubbles weren’t bad. Didn’t taste a lot of green tea, but the citrus and the mint went together nicely, and I think I detected maybe a hint of ginger, because there was a little bit of a zing in it. Next time I’m there, I’m going to try the Sparkling Berry White Tea flavor.
