Yesterday when I made some of this tea iced to take to the Managers meeting, I had two young lads race up the the counter and ask for a sip. I made too much for my travel mug and rather than put just a little amount into the fridge. I poured the last little bit over and ice cube (one for each lad)
I held my breath…
Lad 1 – “Oh My GOD Erin!! THERE IS CINNAMON IN THIS!”
Lad 2 – “Erin, I know this is from your stuff, an-an’ I know e’pensive, but can we have this for Beach day tomorrow?”
And that is what we did today, Lad 2 helped me set this one up for a sun-steeped tea today, and it turned out really well! Rooibos sun-steeps so well and does not over steep (it would seem)… Not only that, but all 16 kids that showed up tried this tea, of the 16 over half prefer this tea over the “Bear Trap” we made and 2 requested this tea for Christmas Camp!
Verbatum: We could steep this and add hot-chocolate powder!! (Wow, I am creating evil tea genius’!!
