This new bag doesn’t seem to taste nearly as vanilla-y as my last one… maybe it’s just a fluke of my taste buds today? But I actually got up out of my chair after sipping it to look at the box again and make sure I’d bought vanilla, not plain, rooibos.

Apparently, I called “sipdown” prematurely. :-(
I found 2 more teabags in my “tea wallet.” :-)

Someone recently suggested that rooibos and Irish cream go well together, so I added 1 Tbsp Bailey’s to a small, strong mug of this. I must say, I agree!

Drinking it plain this morning, alongside Pumpkin Spice bars with brown butter frosting. I’m not sure that the vanilla is as strong as in the Celestial Seasonings Madagascar blend after all. It definitely seems to pop with some dairy/substitute, but without it I get just a smooth even blend of rooibos and vanilla — not that that’s a bad thing! The vanilla is just not as in-your-face as it may be in other blends.

OH, my…whatever brown butter frosting is, I think I could eat a quart of it!

It’s easy! I was too lazy to drag out the mixer to make cream cheese frosting, so I made this instead http://www.salad-in-a-jar.com/family-recipes/no-fuss-brown-butter-icing-microwave-method

The “pumpkin spice bars” were what I called the result of mixing 1 pkg Full Circle Gluten-free Spice Cake Mix, 1 can Libby’s 100% pumpkin, and 6 oz. Silk Original Coconut Milk, and then baking the resulting batter. Not bad actually! The first half I tried to make into cupcakes, but they didn’t rise enough or cook thoroughly. The second half of the batter was perfect for an 8×8 pan though. My mom even liked them (I gave her half so I wouldn’t eat them all myself!)

Smooth, rich, and robust. I added one ounce of Silk coconut milk and now it’s just as good as a fancy coffeeshop drink in my opinion. Something about a good vanilla rooibos is so soothing to me. This seems to be good quality. I already like it better than the CS Madagascar Vanilla Rooibos (my previous fave bagged vanilla roobios), and even better, these bags are individually sealed, which should keep it fresher!

I love CS Madagascar V, so this has to be great!

Um, no. How does something Organic taste so artificial?
