Ever since I read the reviews of Verdant’s Chocolate Chamomile Curiosity Brew, I’ve been playing around with base ingredients to see if I can concoct something similar on my own.

Tonight, we did equal parts Belgian Chocolate Rooibos, cacao nibs, and chamomile. Wasn’t bad, made some sensory synapses fire (been brain-dead all week), but next time I think I’ll back off the chocolate a bit. (Back off chocolate? Am I nuts?)

should we have you tested?

My local shop makes a health blend of cocoa nibs, ginger, spearmint and mint, chamomile (5-7 minute steep). They do a cocoa nib, puer and chocolate rooibos too. All sell well. (The rooibos puer one they take the rooibos out for me and call it Choco Pu).

I’m not crazy. My mom had me tested :)

…haven’t been brave enough to introduce anything minty into the mix, but ginger sounds interesting! I’ve also been eyeing the bulk bag of calendula leaves at our local health food hangout—that’s another ingredient in the Verdant version.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
