Made a pot for myself and the boyfriend this morning, as we both stayed up until ridiculous hours studying for midterm exams.

Steeped for 4 min and added skim milk. I was afraid the rose would be overpowering with the extra steeping time but that wasn’t really the case (or maybe we were in too much of a rush to notice).

This was a really interesting tea, the steeping recommendations were for 2 tsps for 30 seconds in 190 F water. Lacking a working thermometer I had to guestimate on the water temp, but it doesn’t seem to have hurt anything.

The first steep had a sort of clear, slightly sweet taste (I have no idead what to compare it to) on the tip of the tongue which faded into a baked flavour I’m familiar with in my Formosa Oolongs (although not as strong).

The second steep (for 1 min) tasted much more vegetal, almost like a green tea – did someone switch the leaves on me while I wasn’t looking?! It also had that hint of clear sweetness, particularly as it cooled.

These guys get major points for using real mint leaves and cocoa nibs instead of taking the easy way out and just using the mysterious (and probably artificial) ‘flavouring’. It smells amazing, both the dry tea and while it was steeping, and it makes a delicious, flavourful cup.

Intensely tart and fruity. Often make this an iced drink with a bit of honey to sweeten.

Rooibos scented with rose, currants, and blueberries. A nice flavoured rooibos.
