Red Velvet Chocolate Tea

I couldn’t remember whose comment had mentioned Frank making a Red Velvet honeybush, but Republic of Teas just beat him to it. I just received an email today with news that this Rooibos tea had been created. Here’s the info.

Sharing because I’m drooling over it!

I saw this too and was actually going to ask Frank about it because there is NO cream cheese flavor in it… I think this is a good excuse for more cream cheese teas and to one up RoT. That and I don’t like red rooibos so I’m thinking black. Maybe a decaf black.

That was me!!!! I just saw this on Facebook and literally squealed. I’m totally getting it…but am with Cofftea, I think Frank would be able to one-up them easily. But please make it decaf, cause I have a feeling I’d be addicted, and I’d kinda like to sleep.

If it wasn’t for you and that greenbush blend, I’d never try it. The red velvet cake I was raised on doesn’t have beets in it.

Jaime said

Lol! Those greenbushes are yummy, aren’t they? How about I send you a couple bags of this once I get it?

And I’ve had a red velvet cake that had beets in it…then again, I try almost any red velvet recipe that I can get my hands on. My great-grandmother’s was perfection, and she didn’t give the recipe to anyone, so my family is constantly trying to figure it out.

That’d be great, thanks! Yeah my grandma’s just had a copious… ok, beyond copious… a freakin crap load of red food coloring lol.

Mmm yummy I think Frank could do a good version with cream cheese as that is essential to a good red velvet cake.

But if he doesn’t come up with one soon I might break down and buy the RoT if it gets decent reviews.

Oh yes I had seconded Jaime’s original comment on the Red velvet tea…. I had suggested red velvet black or honeybush! YUMMY! Thanks for sharing!

Ooooh! I may have to try this since I am all out of chocolatey rooibos. Thanks for the heads up!

I ordered one today. Couldn’t resist! I’m pleased with my RoT’s red teas.

i saw this, and have resisted so far on the basis i have tons of tea and their other chocolate teas have been disappointing
